Add Josiah Leming to the the list of Season 7 Idols who will be releasing a record this fall…
From a Warner Brothers press release:
Tennessee-born singer and songwriter Josiah Leming has signed a publishing and recording deal with Warner Bros. Records. The 19-year-old newcomer is currently in London with producer/musician David Kosten (Bat For Lashes, Faultline) recording tracks for his debut album, which Warner Bros. Records will release this fall.
“Josiah’s talent as a lyricist is one of the main reasons I signed him, ” says Warner Bros. Records’ Senior Vice President of A&R Perry Watts-Russell. “All of his emotions go into his songs. He has an extraordinary gift for turning his experiences into art.”
“No matter what I have gone through, I have the same feelings every kid has, ” Leming says. “And I think I can put those feelings in such a way that they connect with people and help them get through their hard times. If my music can give others something they can express their emotions through, that’s the whole point.”
Josiah is indeed a gifted songwriter. I’m really looking forward to his album this fall.
