After breaking into the music business as part of Teddy Riley’s hit-making group BlackStreetDave Hollister brought his gritty tenor, down home and soul-drenched ‘keeping it real’ approach to a string of hits. Creating numerous anthems about love, life, respect and lessons learned, the Gold-selling singer managed to merge inspirational material with edgy songs fusing the best of R&B and Hip Hop. Through it all, Hollister’s approach has been able to ‘keep it 100’ while dealing with the ups and downs of life from different perspectives, all held together by the honest and soulful expressiveness of his voice. Yet many feel that he has been under-recognized, possibly because of the multi-faceted nature of his personal and artistic journey.
