Josiah Leming / Bio

Josiah Leming is a 24 year old American-born Singer/Songwriter currently living in Los Angeles, CA. Born in the hard-luck town of Morristown, TN along with 8 siblings, he discovered at the age of 10 an indelible love for music, and devoted the majority of his pre-teen years to the discovery and creation of music. In these years he taught himself to play piano, guitar and drums, as well as beginning to discover what he would call "a love affair" with songwriting. At the age of 17, Leming dropped out of high school, sold his possessions and bid farewell to Morristown and his family and friends to pursue his higher calling of music. He played almost anywhere for anything, or as the case often was, nothing. Waiting tables and various odd jobs provided a bit of financial stability, while he mostly drifted for a year. He is most notably known for a brief tenure on season 7 of the television show "American Idol", on which he made a name for himself performing original songs and accompanying himself on piano. Although he was booted from the show before the voting rounds, his raw emotion and original spin on music caught the ears of Warner Brothers Records executives, who signed him a month after the airing of the show. Josiah spent 3 tumultuous years on WBR, releasing two EPs titled "Angels Undercover EP" and "Punk Ass Rain EP" and finally in the fall of 2010 released his debut album "Come on Kid" to what would be an unenthusiastic reception. He was dropped from the label's roster. Currently, Leming is independently recording his sophomore album in Burbank CA, while touring the country and devoting time to his ever-growing fan base. Still young and very-much hungry, he doesn't see giving up as an option. New music to come soon....
