Meet Josiah Leming, 18 years old.
Josiah was born in a small town in East Tennessee. At a young age it was clear to see that Josiah was driven by a restless, and sometimes reckless imagination that never ceased to grip him. From that imagination came the devotion to create a truly original and inspiring art form drawn from a large influencial pool including writers, singers, actors and political figures.
At the age of 8 Josiah began playing the piano, almost completely self taught, with the fundamental help of a local elderly piano instructor. Josiah began writing his own music around the age of 16, and began performing locally shortly thereafter. After picking up the guitar, bass, and drums, Josiah pretty much abandoned structured education, and at the age of 17 dropped out of school, to the dismay and disrespect of many.
Josiah is now travelling the country, performing and fighting his way to the top of the national and local scenes. As far as the music goes? Explanations are not needed, just give him a listen.
The story about the boy who lives all alone in his car broke everybody’s heart. No one really cared how talented he could be. But he is. Very.
Estou completamente apaixonada por esse menino.
