With their innovative music compositions, excellent work ethic and production skills, Panopoly is guaranteed to inject life into the often repetitive beats and sounds of hip hop.
When asked about the making of the video and the concept behind it, Reginald Johnson (RTV) states, "The video concept came from each of us. We all applied our own concepts with video director Brian Storm to make the video what it is. In the music video, we simply acted as ourselves. Our own individual and unique personalities shined through. It was a lot of fun!"
What Panopoly Is All About:
Tyrique Johnson (Reezy): "We are all about love, God, and spreading true joy amongst all people. We do that all through our music. Music is love, and music is what's going to change this world for the better."
Raina Hinchee (Yung Ray) also offers words of encouragement to those that are starting in the rap game. "Our advice would be to pray, love, and stay focused. Those three things will rule above any roadblocks and keep you steadfast on your journey to success. Also, be humble and generous. So many artists want fast money and that shuts the door of opportunity. You must be willing to give your all whether it be for free or not. You must be willing to network with all types of artists. It can't be a one person venture."
What Does Panopoly Wish To Achieve:
Gabriel Lambirth (Gabe): "We wish to bless the entire world with our music... with our love. We thrive to sell out shows, appear on TV channels, clothing, and any other form of media. We want our presence to be known throughout the entire world equally bringing love to any person who encounters us."
Entertainment counsultant Raffles van Exel, who has guided some of the most acclaimed executives and celebrities (Such as the King of Pop, the late Michael Jackson and soul songstress Patti LaBelle) says the following about Panopoly:
"I'm quite impressed with the group Panopoly. I believe that we're seeing another Fugees, Digable Planets and Black Eyed Peas in the making and I expect this talented group to go far in the industry. Panopoly is the breath of fresh air that is needed in hip hop right now."
Panopoly was formed in 2009 when founders Reginald Johnson and Raina Hinchee inducted Gabriel Lambirth and Tyrique Johnson into the Hip Hop/R&B/Dance group. The name Panopoly came from a mispelling of the word "panoply" and it was decided by the group members to keep the unique spelling of the name. The group members produce, arrange, compose and perform all of their material, and have recently opened for hip hop group The Rej3ctz. The Panopoly sound is described as original, cutting-edge and cross genre.
The members hail from Richmond and El Sobrante, California.
The members of Panopoly were honored with prestigious awards. Reginald Johnson has the won the 2010 National Lay Christian Art Festival- instramental category. Gabriel Lambirth has won the 2008 Robert Johnson-Gibson Guitar New Generation Award as well as the 2006 Blues New Artist of the Year - West Coast Blues Hall of Fame Award under the alias ‘Lil Gabe’. The group as a whole has also won the “It Takes a Village Award” from Sherri-Miller of the CFL Society and Hasani Campbell Search Team.
