Josiah Leming: Angels Under Cover [EP]

Reprise Records [2008]

Fire Drills Review:
Josiah Leming has one of the most interesting stories in American Idol history. He actually did not make the final show and had the most compelling story as a homeless kid that drove the country and played open-mics while sleeping in his car - oh yeah his mom also has been battling cancer. Warner Bros. imprint Reprise jumped on signing Leming after his quick Idol departure and the strength of his debut five track EP shows why. His voice sounds way beyond his age of nineteen years and his songs are heartfelt and catchy indie sounding rock. His full length album will drop in 2009.

Key Track: "Arctic Outcry Wind"

Band With Similar Fire: Josh Rouse
