Recently signed to label Centricity Music, Neon Feather—aka Ben Thompson—is a uniquely skilled producer/programmer. After discovering his passion for making electronic music when he encountered Garage Band at age 14, Neon spent years honing his craft as a producer and writer.
Through his teens, the North Carolina native worked his way onto the music scene and became known for creating innovative remixes across a variety of genres. Grounded in his faith, Neon found both personal fulfillment and professional achievement producing within the CCM niche, crafting remixes for artists such as tobyMac, Lecrae, Capital Kings, Urban Rescue, and Britt Nicole. His Capital Kings “Fireblazin” collaboration was nominated for a 2015 Dove Award.
Centricity had been following Neon’s work; when he took an interest in developing original songs, the label saw an exciting opportunity to partner with the talented producer. He first collaborated with Centricity in creating a remix of Jordan Feliz’s No. 1 single “The River” and went on to sign recording and publishing deals in 2017. His first single “The Long Way Home” features BEC recording artist David Dunn and provides Neon’s perspective on enjoying the scenic route of life.
