Micah Tyler is a singer/songwriter and Texas native. Micah’s true passion is to tell good stories and love people well. Having served in youth ministry for almost a decade, Micah has a true love and respect for the local church but also wants to make Gospel-centered music that has a style to attract the unchurched as well. Tyler has developed a style all his own which he is calling “Southern Soul.” Birthed from the the grooves and melodic influences of his childhood idols (Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, etc.) and mixed with the swamps and deep woods of southeast TX, Micah’s music is growing a fan base of young and old alike. He released his first solo record, “The Story I Tell” in October of 2013 and it debuted at #3 on the iTunes Christian/Gospel charts and #93 on the overall iTunes charts. It also reached #2 on Billboard Magazine’s Heatseeker Chart for the SouthCentral United States region (Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, New Mexico) for all genres released that week. He recently released a fun, new project titled “The Kitchen Sink EP” on October 7th, 2014 and it climbed all the way to #2 on the iTunes Christian/Gospel Charts. Tyler describes it as “the kind of record you listen to with your ‘steel-toe dancing shoes on'” because it will both lyrically challenge your heart but also make you want to get up and bust a move. Micah travels over 200 days a year to play/lead at churches, concert venues, camps, retreats, coffee shops, and platforms all over TX. Micah has shared the stage with National touring acts like Building 429, Leeland, Phillips, Craig, & Dean, Sanctus Real, Unspoken, Matt Baird of the band Spoken, Jimmy Needham, The After’s, Sidewalk Prophets, and Phil Wickham. This December, Micah will be heading out on a 2014 Christmas Tour with Shane & Shane and Phil Wickham, bringing his swampy, Gospel style to new audiences in Washington DC, Texas, and California.
