ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Born in the city of Rock n Roll (Cleveland) this Rnb crooner was destined for fame and celebrity status. Son of a Gospel singer, nephew of a nationally celebrated radio announcer and gold selling BMI award winning writer, and Grandson of a man who once sang for President Roosevelt what else was he to do. His future was preset like a wedding between two royal families. Starting at age 4 he began singing in the church and eventually directed the children's choir. By the age of 15 Dave was summoned to become a part-time radio announcer under his Uncle Lynn Tolliver. This brought instant success to a teenager in his junior year of high school. For 16 years he would successfully lock down the #1 spots of any time slot he held. During his radio tenure Pavi also spent a stint in the Virgin Islands as co-host of the Big Fat Morning Show. During those radio days he would go on to interview some of music's biggest stars from Martin Lawrence to L.L. Cool J and many more, then it was his turn! The world of the MUSIC for D.T. started with a bang as the late great Gerald Levert who handpicked Dave and his first partner Jason Champion. Before you knew it the Men at Large were topping the charts and selling millions of albums. After 2 cds on the Atlantic label Dave and Jason would part ways
Dave hooked up with Gemini Porter an ex-gang banging rotund tenor from Chicago who slid right in as a perfect fit. They went on to record 2 more cds that gained critical acclaim, and an independent award nominations. Recently Blaq has released a solo project “Blaq Pavarotti” and his next project “The Green Jacket” is due late 2012... If that’s not enough during all of this Dave has performed in 21 stage plays and 6 movies as principals and extras always handling his functions to the fullest! Tollie has appeared with some of Hollywood's big names and music's best always garnering praise from his co-stars. On the other side Mr. Tolliver is a C.E.O. of his own Blaq Eyes Entertainment specializing in the development of the future of the business as a whole, from artistry to the improvement of artist, radio station, and label relations. He feels we have all lost the connection and the community intertwinement that once made the music business a thing of integrity and pride, IT MUST GO BACK ITS BIGGER THAN THE MUSIC!!! A resident of Atlanta Tolliver hosts numerous industry events and is consistently called upon to sit on judging panels for local talent showcases often giving dream shattering advice but constructive as well. For 25 years Blaq has been in and around the business and as if there was nothing left to do he has been selected as an A&R for both M.L.S./Atlantic and IMG Recordings/Universal and is currently touring the nation looking for “GAME CHANGING ARTISTS”. There are plans for a performing arts school in his native Cleveland, Ohio to continue the enrichment of the arts to the inner city youth with courses in music instruments, reading, history, appreciation, song writing, drama, and recording arts. “Music is my passion, my gift, and I want to share my gift with those who want to learn”, says Dave. Some would love to count Dave out but how can you with the fire this man encompasses. With two books on the way, and currently touring with his 90’s cohorts, a reality TV show, as well as a more movie and stage play roles HE CAN’T BE STOPPED!

Old School vs. New School
Me and my family like this cd because of the old school vs. new school flavor. With the music changes of today, we like that Mr. Tolliver can sing with the flow at ease. Excellent cd!
