Micah began recording piano at the request of his classmates and friends in high school who enjoyed listening to his improvisations. With the help of a friend who owned some recording equipment, Micah recorded his first compositions at his home church in Pleasant Hill.
As his recordings became popular in his community, Micah started to develop his composition style while studying music academically. He draws on his influences from accompanying musical theater (Richard Rogers, George Gershwin, etc.), classical and romantic period composers, as well as contemporary worship songs.
Since those first recordings, Micah has released four solo piano albums that have had airplay in several parts of the country, as well as online through Whisperings Solo Piano Radio and other internet stations.
Though born in Alaska, Micah grew up in Pleasant Hill, Oregon and now lives with his wife in Eugene. After focusing on music in high school, Micah attended the University of Oregon where he graduated with a bachelor’s in music. Micah works as a youth and worship leader at Pleasant Hill Baptist Church near Eugene, Oregon. He also works for a credit union during the week while playing shows, teaching piano and composing.
