Rick Schweinsberg


Rick Schweinsberg began his Southern Gospel music career in 1975 shortly after he was saved as a teenager. He formed and managed his own Southern Gospel group in Portsmouth, Ohio called the True Gospel Sounds. A regional group, the True Gospel Sounds traveled throughout Ohio, West Virginia, Kentucky, Indiana, Michigan, and Pennsylvania from 1975-1998. Rick sang lead, did the emcee work, and played bass guitar. His original songs have been recorded by the Hoppers, the Dixie Melody Boys/DMB Band, Triumphant Quartet, the Jeff Treece Band, and others. His songs have also been published in songbooks released by Gaither Music Publishing and the Rex Nelon Music Company. Rick also owns his own publishing company, Sweet/Tac Publishing.

From 1985-1988, Rick was a salesman and afternoon drive DJ on the Southern Gospel side of WPAY Radio in Portsmouth, Ohio. From 1988-2007, Rick was the Operations Manager and morning drive DJ for WXIC Radio in Waverly, Ohio.

From 1983-2007, Rick owned and operated Sweet Spirit Recording Studio in Wheelersburg, Ohio, where he engineered and produced primarily Southern Gospel recordings. During that time, he owned Sweet Spirit Records, Red Hen Records, and Ahmish Records. He operated Rick Schweinsberg Sound Company, as well, installing sound equipment in churches and running sound for Southern Gospel and CCM artists.

In 2007, Rick was hired at New Day Christian Distributors and Salem Communications and relocated to Nashville, Tennessee where he works in the recording studios of Daywind Music Group. Rick later assumed the position of A & R Director for Daywind's Christian Country label, Red Hen, where he also works as a producer. With his son Micah, Rick has developed and produced Red Hen artists Red Roots, Zach and Rodney, and Michael Lee.

Rick is the father of former Crabb Family/Crabb Revival drummer, Micah Schweinsberg.
