ApX Keyboardist Has Gifts for You (2 New Songs)
Sat., Dec. 26. 2020 1:46pm EST

ApX keyboardist Rich Mannion has a Christmas gift for our fans: two great new songs you can download for free.

One is Rich's masterful prog-rock instrumental version of "The First Noel." It's a very clever, beautiful, and magnificent arrangement. He's a one-man Trans-Siberian Orchestra!

The other is an original song about the current state of this world called "Gaslight." Rich wrote it, sang it, and played all of the instruments, too. It's a rocker with great lyrics and music. It reminds us a little of the bands King's X and Living Colour.

You can download them both for free at:

https://www.reverbnation.com/richmannion

Rich 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.

Counting our latest single, "All You Need Is Done," Rich has played keyboards on 75 our parodies, sung backing vocals on 12 of them, and provided additional guitars on one of them. 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.

While we're here, we'd like to wish Rich a belated happy birthday. The blessed event was on November 12, but we weren't putting out any newsletters at the time, so we didn't get to properly recognize it.
