Who is Rich Mannion?

Keyboardist Rich Mannion climbed aboard the ApologetiX train in April 2018. He was recommended to us by ApX alum keyboardist/producer Bill Hubauer.

Rich's first song with us was "L.S.F.," released in early July 2018. He did such a great job that we haven't let him alone since! Thankfully, he's always up for a challenge. Furthermore, he's always up to the challenge.

By the spring of 2020, Rich had played on about 60 of our singles and had sung backing vocals a number of others. He can play many different instruments and sing many different parts, but he focuses on keyboards and backing vocals for ApX.

It's a good thing for us that Rich can multitask, because during the time he's been with ApX he's also been the keyboardist with the award-winning blues group Bobby Thompson and the Groove. and the staff pianist for The Wheeling Jamboree in Wheeling WV.

He and his wife, Danette, live in Industry PA. We are very grateful that God brought them into the ApX family.
