If you want to know about Josiah and the Bonnevilles just listen to their songs. Front Man and Tennessee native Josiah Leming lays his life bare in the gritty, gripping lyrics, from romantic relationships hitting the skids to wonderful, whiskey-soaked one night stands to the struggles of being a rootless touring musician since the age of 17.
Raised in the no man’s land town of Morristown, Tennessee – once an outpost of outlaws and drifters, now factory-focused and heavily Baptist – Josiah saw his biological father leave at a young age. His mother, remarried, added to her two children by adopting a further seven, all squeezed in to a tiny house.
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.
