At eight, a Casio keyboard for Christmas changed Josiah’s life. Immediately, instinctively, he knew how to play it and between starting to write his own songs, singing in church and graduating on to his grandmother’s piano, he plotted his escape.
Josiah and the Bonnevilles have since self-released one album and are now working on their next. On Trial, Josiah and the Bonnevilles’ acclaimed debut, came out in 2018, but by then, Motel Mayday was well underway. This year, Josiah and the Bonnevilles signed with British indie label Yucatan and came to London to complete the album, which is due to be released in May 2020. The band released their first single from the new album ‘Oh No!’ on October 16th, which was premiered in Clash.
