Josiah and The Bonnevilles
Josiah and the Bonnevilles is a musical project led by singer-songwriter Josiah Leming. Josiah was born in Morristown, Tennessee and as a child, Josiah was fascinated by music and began playing the piano and guitar at a young age.
Josiah’s musical talents became evident to his family and friends, and he began performing as a teenager catching the attention of music industry professionals. In 2010, he formed Josiah and the Bonnevilles, which presented a unique blend of Folk, Americana, and Country that draws from his roots as a true Appalachian artist, embracing honesty and putting life’s realities into his songwriting.
In 2015, Josiah and the Bonnevilles released its debut album, “On Trial.” The album was praised for its raw, vulnerable lyrics and its combination of acoustic and electric instruments that underpinned the storytelling. The band went on tour in support of the album with the artist LP, performing at various venues across the United States and Europe.
Since the release of “On Trial,” Josiah and the Bonnevilles have continued to make music and tour, gaining a devoted fan base along the way. Josiah remains grounded and focused on his music. He has spoken openly about his struggles with mental health, addiction, and the music industry as a whole and uses his songwriting as a form of therapy. He continues to inspire his fans with his honesty and vulnerability, and his music has touched the hearts of people around the world.
Special guest Troy Millette is thrilled to be joining Josiah and the Bonnevilles on stage at Spruce Peak Arts. According to Millette, “Josiah Fleming was my top Spotify artist of 2023 (thanks Spotify Wrapped), and I am absolutely elated to share a stage with him at Spruce Peak. Josiah has this quality in his playing and songwriting that makes him feel like an old friend, and I’m sure after this show, he will be.”

What’s in a song? A dash of creativity, a few fresh rhymes, and a full serving of heart are the recipe for success according to singer/songwriter Troy Millette, who alongside his band the Fire Below has gained recognition as one of the region’s most engaging live acts.
