Dallas native Topasana Sansom, better known as "Top", has been entertaining primarily in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex for the past 15 years. A self-taught vocal sensation, Top has developed a sound unlike any other. His range spans well over three octaves and the strength and stamina of his remarkable voice allow him to sing consistently night after night without fail. Some of his fans have been known to describe him as "One of the most talented and exciting entertainers in Texas." Others say "His vocal ability and range is unlike any other singer we’ve ever heard." Another says "It’s absolutely amazing the talent this man has, all right here in our own backyard!"

Top first put his mark on the Dallas music scene in 1984 when he became the lead singer for the well-known band Dallas Brass & Electric ("DB& E"). After several successful years with them he eventually moved on to front a number of other Dallas cover bands such as The Rhythm In Motion (T.R.I.M.), Groove Posse, and Cuvee. While with Cuvee, Top had numerous appearances on Channel 8’s Good Morning Texas where host Paula McClure consistently featured him as one of Dallas/Fort Worth’s finest musicians.

Top easily distinguishes himself from all of the other singers in this industry because he doesn’t just sing — he entertains. That is what Top is all about. He pours himself into every song and becomes that artist with his uncanny ability to manipulate his voice to sound just like them. Some of his specialties are Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Sting, Mic Jagger and Barry White. When you see Top perform there is literally never a dull moment. Whether you are one who likes to dance and be part of all the action or just sit back and watch the performance, Top offers something for everyone to enjoy!

Tops talents lay not only in live performances, but in the studio and as a writer as well. You can frequently hear his voice on radio stations all over the United States singing radio spots and station tags. Writing has always been a passion for Top and he is currently working on his second original CD, which is scheduled to be released at the end of this year.
