Josiah Leming

Josiah Leming charmed his way onto American television sets in early 2008, when the teenaged singer/songwriter appeared in several episodes of American Idol's seventh season. He received significant screen time during his brief period with the show, piquing viewers' curiosity with his unique background (he had reportedly left home in order to travel the country by car, essentially rendering himself homeless) and heartfelt vocals. Leming had spent the first half of his childhood in Morristown, Tennessee, where he grew up alongside eight siblings before making the decision to roam across American in a Mercury Topaz. Traveling from town to town, he began to sharpen his songwriting skills while courting new fans via MySpace. A number of emotive ballads developed from the experience, and Leming performed his very own "To Run" during his initial audition for American Idol. He advanced to the next round but was ultimately axed from the Top 24 lineup, a decision that saw much criticism from his rapidly expanding fan base.

Leming's luck hadn't run out, however; he made several TV appearances during the following weeks, including stints on MTV News and The Ellen DeGeneres Show, where he accompanied himself on piano during another rendition of "To Run." As the American Idol season progressed, so did Leming's prospects. He signed a record deal with Warner Bros. in May 2008 and quickly entered the studio, inspired by his mother's battle with terminal cancer to finish his debut album quickly. However, due to either creative problems in the studio or contractual disputes between Warner Bros. and 19 Entertainment (the production company behind American Idol) -- or both -- the release of Leming's debut album was delayed for two years. A short EP, Angels Undercover, was released in the meantime, and the full-length Come on Kid finally appeared in September 2010. ~ Andrew Leahey, Rovi

Something special in the name josia(h)
Its been a while since I listened to Josiah Leming, but the feeling I get in my heart when I listen is the same. His voice is one that tells a story, and it's why he's one of my favorite artists.
Great organic music for the soul!

One of the most talented and pure artists there are. He is amazing live, and such a sweet, and kind hearted person. You're crazy not to like him
:) this guy is epic. A legend in the making.
Most talented artist I have ever listened to in my life. His music is life changing. Anyone who has not seen him perform live should add it to their bucket list. He an amazing performer and is completely natural. He can change a persons life forever. How is it that he is not up and big yet when we have tons of people rapping about the exact same topics in every song??? Josiah deserves every bit of fame he gets. He deserves to go far!
come on kid!

He is really good. I like the pairing of Josiah and Regina Spektor. They are not exactly the same but they are both talented and their voices are unique.

just found out bout im n i alredy tink hez kewl
I LOVE JOSIAH! I hope they put up his new EP, Punk A** Rain, soon.
He reminds me of the early Bono: passionate. It is missing in many artists today. We will have to see how he develops musically, but as a writer he has chops.
He reminds me of Bob Dylan. Not the best vocalist; but a song-writing genius with passion. I hope he doesn't let the fame go to his head.

Josiah has something special about him. He's not the best vocalist I've heard, neither is he the best pianist I've seen. What he's got is passion about what he does. He gets music... he uses it to express himself, and he does that fantasticall y . You easily overlook any "mistakes" he makes because you know what he's playing/sing i n g is from his soul.
Definitely worth more than one listen. Fabulous lyrics, and full of talent.
Josiah is a great singer songwriter. I wish him all the best. I love his song "One Last Song" it is so powerful.
