Mr. David 

David Jones was first signed to LaFace Records and scored a Billboard charting single ("Splackavellie", #27 Pop, #14 R & B) under the name "Pressha", which first appeared on the Soundtrack to the movie "Player's Club". A full Pressha album, "Don't Get It Twisted",  followed but didn't produce a followup hit.

Jones changed his moniker to 'Mr. David" and dropped his next LP independently. "Jody Is Back" was successful in the so-called Chitlin' Circuit, scoring regional airplay with "Shoo Do Wop" and "Slide On".  That album's producer, Tony Mercedes, started up his own Tony Merceds Records to release Mr. David's followup "Southern Soul Singer", which was distributed by Malaco Records' subsidiary Waldoxy Records.

Mr. David then signed with Waldoxy for a 2008 release entitled "Me Loving You".
