JOHNNY POPCORN performed live at The Boom Room recording and video studio in Philadelphia (Fishtown) on June 18th 2015. The set was broadcast on Facebook Live as a live streaming webcast which was broadcast to an online audience around the world.
JOHNNY POPCORN is a five member rock band which features vocals from Hezekiah and Jani Coral.
Initially, JP was founded by producer/bassist Tone Whitfield (Me’shell Ndegeocello and Zap Mama) and songwriter/emcee/producer Hezekiah (Rawkus Records) after several late night s working on R&B artist Bilal’s album. Their early works were pet studio projects released causally to music fans at live shows and digital downloads.
Hezekiah feeling stagnant in hip hop started to devote more time to Johnny Popcorn. Hezekiah started to recruit musicians to form a touring band which included guitarist Lloyd Alexander. The band solidified when Virginia native Jani Coral added her raspy like vocals to the band.
Now with an innovative sound and direction, they continues to ignite live shows and record emotional driven songs. JP has opened for Bilal, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, RJD2, Robert Glasper Experiment, Oddisee, Ladi6, and Kindred & the Family Soul.
