The world of the music for Dave started with a bang as the late great Gerald Levert handpicked Dave for Men At Large whom later would contribute to music history topping the charts and selling millions of albums. As well as singing Dave has appeared in over 30 stage plays, 9 movies as well as a host of judging, and hosting appearances across the country. He often takes time to mentor young artists who are trying to find their way in the biz with helpful advice or intuitive vocal and staging techniques. Being a trendsetter for the plus sized and his love for looking and smelling nice Dave is starting a unisex vest line called "Invested". Vests in his eyes can be worn for all levels of events and can also be used as bulge hiders, which is the main reason for wearing them!

Through it all Dave is a survivor and refuses to change his style for the watered down stylings of today's newer artists. He believes there is a void in the lane of true "Soul Music" and he plans to continue in the same path as his late great brother and mentor Gerald Levert. Tolliver attributes his longevity to staying true and loyal to what got him to the top of the charts before and believes the true music lovers will always recognize.
