Put On Earth for you 🎸 🧦 🪐
Fender x MonoNeon
While Stance has always had an ear for MonoNeon’s unique sound, anyone that rocks a sock on the headstock of their bass can’t help but capture our hearts, too. Fittingly enough, our friends at Fender recently reached out for us to up MonoNeon’s sock game with an official collaboration style to coincide with the release of his brand-new signature bass. The result is a loud-and-proud striped design to complement MonoNeon’s often-fluorescent fashion sense. We sat down with MonoNeon to learn more about his story, style inspiration, and of course his love for music…Check out the interview below.
We understand your dad had a major impact on your music influence. What were some of your earliest memories of that impacted you to have an intrest in music?
Not only my dad had a big impact on my music but my grandma till this day still influences a lot thangs I do, especially the gospel twang I may have in my music. Also my cousin Johnny Morrow (age 69 transitioned 2019) was an gospel organist/vocalist from the Baptist church.. I use to take my bass to his choir rehearsals and jam with him and grandma.
On top if being known to having a creative and unique playing style, where did your personal style stem from?
I’ve been dressing how I wanted since I was a kid. But it really started when I got into this fascination about avant-garde visual arts. I love high-visibility colors.. so I’m always finding a way to wear those colors. Recently it’s been quilted and crochet clothes.. it reminds me of my childhood when I carried a blanket everywhere with me.
