Tolliver is the son of a preacher, but his music is anything but holy. His songs are a gumbo of soul, funk, pop and camp, as funny as they are soul-baring. His recent EP 'Daddyland' is about reconnecting with his late father via the astral plane, and realizing that he has more in common with his devout-yet-very-flawed father than he ever knew. The LA-via-Chicago singer is a dance floor demon. He marries a Midwest work ethic with a never-ending love of parties and poppin off, and those conflicting desires drive his creativity. He makes pop records with frank lyrics about redemption and relapse, and twerking at the altar of one's mind. Daddyland was recently in KCRW's top 10 albums, with each song from the project in steady rotation. He's been compared to everyone from War to Al Green to Andre 3000, an ethereal-yet-gritty soul survivor. 


In February of 2022 Tolliver made his late-night television debut performing his single ‘Say What’ on The Late Late Show with James Corden.  That same year Tolliver embarked on his first ever west coast tour to support the LP, played a monthly residency at The Echo and headlined KCRW’s SUMMER NIGHTS series in Los Angeles and in December opened up for the indie electronic band CHK CHK CHK on their west coast run. He was a featured festival artist at the 2023 OUTLOUD WeHo Pride Concert Event and one of a few LGBTQ Artists to Discover at the 2023 Pride Festivals all across the states by UPROXX. Tolliver was also highlighted in the July 2023 edition of the STORM report -- a monthly selection of 20 artists that have been handpicked as proven indicators of artists on the verge on greatness. Tolliver currently serves as DJ & Musical Director for NPR’s THE MIDDLE and can be seen all over Los Angeles as part of the LA TIMES 404 community hosting digital content and engaging the LA community at large reporting on cool findings, unknown history, and everything in between.
