Neon the Bishop Full Band Lineup

Band Bio

Neon the Bishop is the band and story about a fictional and fallen clergyman. Neon's story is told through the textures of a 5-piece group whose eclectic roots and musical backgrounds converge for an electrifying indie blend. Characterized by the relentless vocals of Kendall Wingert, the band builds arena rock guitar work, modern samples and synths, and a driving rhythm section on top of deep, piercing bassbeats

Neon the Bishop's rhythm section bring a wide range of musical experience, including Stephen Morrison's career as an upright chamber bassist and contemporary worship bassist, and drummer Erik Johnson's vast experience drumming for indie bands and worship teams with global reach.

Guitar work by Mario DiBartolomeo and Carlos Hernandez pull the highs and lows together, thanks to lead guitarist Mario's technical agility and sparkling timeless tones, and rhythm guitarist Carlos Hernandez's full-spectrum voicings and intuitive riff work.
