P1LOT was born as Joshua Codey Calderon in 1987 in Redding, California. He began his venture into music when he purchased entry-level production software at the age of 16. Under the alias Kid Pistol, he produced songs for other artists until 2012, when he entered new territory as a singer-songwriter. His debut album, Karma, was a collaborative effort with rap artist Noraa Ish and pianist Alan Logston.
Karma gained award nominations, critically acclaimed and established him as a versatile artist that had been flying under the radar. In 2015, he officially changed his name from Kid Pistol to P1LOT, stating new direction and maturity as the inspiration for such a bold move. On September 13, 2015, he released the Skyway EP, his debut album under the name P1LOT.
