"I just want to be remembered as a great writer. I would love to have other musicians look up to me someday the way I look up to my favorite writers." With over 100 songs written so far since he was 15, that shouldn't be a problem for Micah.
Born and raised in Chester, SC, population of around 5,500 people, Micah's church played a huge role in his life. Along with that, came the gospel and Christian Hymns which shaped his musical taste. He was always very inspired by the more complex, story-telling writers like Rich Mullin and in Micah's songs, you will hear a touch of that influence, as well as some southern rock, country and a bit of a Cajun style .
As he got into his teen years and was introduced to more modern and secular music, he filled his days exploring every kind of music he could find. Once he discovered Aerosmith, despite a burn injury as a child that nearly cost him his right leg, he taught himself to play the drums. He also wrote his first song, "Travelin' Man" at about that time, and his been writing ever since. He knew from then on, becoming a successful musician was his dream and he has been working hard to reach that dream ever since.
In the Fall of 2011, Micah and his wife, Andi, moved to Columbus, Ohio and started performing on weekends together at different venues calling themselves Grapefruit Moon. Soon after, Micah was working at his job when he met their current drummer, Benjamin Premer. Shortly after that, they added the forth member, bass player Rob Trimmer to Grapefruit Moon, as well, and have been working hard to create even more amazing music.
Make sure to keep up with Micah & Grapefruit Moon on their Facebook pages and try to check out a show. Ohio tour dates are below, and national tour dates will be coming soon!
