Janeece Artist Friends
Tony! Toni! Toné!
Tony! Toni! Toné crashed out of their Oakland neighborhood in 1988 with their Gold debut album Who? which spawned the hit "Little Walter".
In 1990, to both critical and popular acclaim, their second album The Revival garnered four # 1 Billboard hits including "Feels Good,"
"Whatever You Want," "The Blues" and "It Never Rains (In Southern California)" and went Platinum. The success of The Revival and subsequent
headlining tour was realized during various awards shows: 1991 NAACP Image Award for "Vocal Group Of The Year", 1991 American Music Award for
"Favorite R&B/Soul Group" and ASCAP Award for "Feels Good". They also contributed "Me & You" to the hit soundtrack for the John Singleton film
Boyz in the Hood.
Their third album, Sons Of Soul, released in 1993, was recorded mostly in Trinidad and spawned one of their most popular ballads and Grammy-nominated
smash, "Anniversary", as well as "If I Had No Loot", "(Lay Your Head On My) Pillow" and "Slow Wine", which all reached high on the Billboard Charts
making the album go double Platinum. 1993 was their most prolific year with several previously unreleased tracks surfacing on soundtracks like
House Party II, Jason's Lyric, The Mask, Panther and Poetic Justice.
After touring the world and a hiatus to work on outside projects, Tony! Toni! Toné regrouped in its founding member D'Wayne Wiggins' Oakland, CA
studio and created the outstanding 1997 album House of Music. The album was named for the mom and pop music store where they bought their records
and black velvet posters while growing up. The first single was "Let's Get Down", which featured popular West coast rapper DJ Quik. MTV aired the
video in heavy rotation, introducing them to an even younger audience of hip-hop aficionados. This album also went Platinum.
Tony! Toni! Toné featured on the title track of Alicia Keys' 2004 platinum-selling album, "Diary". In 2006, D'Wayne Wiggins and Timothy Christian
Riley along with their cousin, Amar Khalil (performing lead vocals) toured the World performing more than 600 shows. Tony! Toni! Toné's much
anticipated sixth album due to be released in 2012. The album features collaborations with Rhymefest, Beyonce Knowles, Keyshia Cole, and Slick Rick
with the Grass Roots Production Team weighing in on this sure-to-go platinum effort.
