Josiah Leming Uncovered

Just a quick post about a young singer/songwriter from Tennessee by the name of Josiah Leming. On the off chance that you watch American Idol (which I don't), you might recognize his name from the seventh season. If you don't, that might be for the best as you'll be apt to give him a fair shot. He just released a five track sampler titled Angels Undercover to amp listeners up for the release of his first full length in January.

My immediate and strongest comparison would be with Keane (who just released a new album of their own last month). Even though a southerner, Josiah's got an English accent and writes a melodic backdrop (quite contrary to the above picture) that certainly reminds me of the British Keane. Anyway, listen for yourself below to Arctic Outcry Wind, the first track from the EP.

Visit his label Reprise Records and become his friend on MySpace.

I agree with you except I'm still not catching the british accent. Love his work.
