In March 2012 Killian Duarte did an Interview with Dywane ‘MonoNeon’ Thomas Jr. We are happy to announce that MonoNeon has just released digitally released, ” Southern Visionary.”
Information on the album written by the artist:
This album features microtonal musicians: Jake Sherman, Michael Vick, Melle Weijters, and Zach Curley. On this album I’m presenting my minimalistic idea of “microtonal-southern soul” with compositions, “Micro-Johnnay Taylor” and “Micro-Staple Sangus”. The title track, “Southern Visionary” is a bass solo, inspired by Johnnie Taylor’s and Z.Z. Hill’s (southern-soul singers) vocal style.
