Artist Biography

Josiah Leming started as a solo artist who is from Morristown, Tennessee. At the age of 17, he dropped out of high school to play shows across the U.S. while living out of his car. He moved to Atlanta soon after to audition on American Idol and became a contestant in 2008. This got him a record deal with Warner Brothers that same year as a solo artist. In his mid-20s, he formed Josiah & the Bonnevilles who landed a residency gig in Los Angeles that helped them develop their sound and craft their first release. The band got a deal with Vagrant Records who released their first EP Cold Blood in 2016. Two years later they released their debut album On Trial. Josiah & the Bonnevilles kept a steady release schedule including covers such as George Strait’s “Amarillo by Morning” and Taylor Swift’s “Anti-Hero.”
