Richie Panelli

MYM supports, and is supported by, local musicians such as Reno’s own ‘The Apprentice’. This up and coming artist grabs the attention of his listeners through his ability to craft a candid storyline while delivering a powerful message, pristine vocals and the cleanest production.

We reached out to The Apprentice in hopes of creating a track for the MYM website, but we didn’t expect a song this legit!
