Biography

Oakland, San Francisco CA, United States (1988 – present)

Tony! Toni! Toné! was an R&B group from Oakland, California popular from their formation in 1988 to the mid to late 1990s. It was composed of D’wayne Wiggins on lead vocals and guitar, his brother Raphael Wiggins (also known as Raphael Saadiq) on lead vocals and bass, and their cousin Timothy Christian Riley on drums. Other members were Elijah Baker, Carl Wheeler, Randall Wiggins, and Antron Haile.


History

Their first album was released in 1988 and was titled Who?. The album went gold and had several hit singles. The first of these, “Little Walter”, went to #1 on the R&B charts. While none of the singles went gold, the next three singles, “Born Not to Know”, “For the Love of You” and “Baby Doll” were all Top 10 R&B singles.

Firmly establishing themselves, the group’s second album The Revival was released in 1990 and reached platinum status. The album spawned several #1 R&B hits with “It Never Rains”, “Feels Good”, and “Whatever You Want”, all topping the R&B charts. “Feels Good” was the group’s first single to breach the Top 10 of the Hot 100 and managed to go gold.

Furthering the group’s success, they released their best selling album to date, Sons Of Soul, in 1993. The album went double platinum and had hit singles: “If I Had No Loot” which hit #7 on the Hot 100, “Anniversary” which reached #10 on the Hot 100, and “(Lay Your Head On My) Pillow” which reached #4 on the R&B charts.

    I am thankful my dad was such a music buff. He owned 100's of old school CDs (Well, in the 90's they were still current!) and from 3 years old til about 6, I would just pick random CDs out of his collection and listen to them. I had no idea what I was listening to, I just appreciated the music. Rediscovering this stuff at 24 and hearing the merit in these artists has been a real joy

    Yeah, Beatnik, I'm also surprised that their play and listener count isn't much higher. But then again, they never really crossed over to the "pop audience" so that may contribute to the lower numbers.
