Micah Schweinsberg

Micah Todd Schweinsberg (1983 - )


Micah Schweinsberg began his Southern Gospel music career at age 2 in 1985 when he first jumped on stage from the first pew in the church where his parents were singing with the True Gospel Sounds. He recorded his first national release, “I’ve Got the Devil by the Tail,” at age 5, charting on several national charts. Micah sang and played (drums and fiddle) with his family's group until age 15 when the True Gospel Sounds disbanded.

In 1998, Micah, Michelle Kelly and Seth Morrison, started a contemporary Christian band called 3PO. Michelle and Seth were also children of former members of the True Gospel Sounds. Micah played drums, wrote songs, and sang backup vocals for 3PO. They opened for a number of national artists including TobyMac, Kirk Franklin, and Jaci Valesquez. 3PO attracted the interest of Fervent Records, but the group's career was cut short when Michelle Kelly became ill after her second liver transplant. Michelle would pass away in 2007.

In 2002, Micah joined the Christian rock group Justifide. He made two tours of Europe and performed throughout the USA until 2004.

Micah next joined the Crabb Family's band where he became a favorite of Southern Gospel fans. After the Crabb Family retired in 2007, he continued with Adam Crabb and Terah Crabb Penhollow's group, Crabb Revival. Micah still plays with the other former Crabb Family band members at special Crabb Family reunion events. He was one of the contributing songwriters and musicians on the Crabb Family's final Letting Go project.

Micah later left the road with Crabb Revival to pursue his own business as a session player, producer, photographer and graphic designer. He also works with his father, Rick Schweinsberg, at Daywind Studios.

Micah married Jackie Crist of the Crist Family in November 2012.
