Chaver Dontae, Toledo Music Scene, Music Expo, Music Fest, Live Entertainment, Electronic Funk, Soul MusicChavar Dontae is an artist that emits an attitude and a lifestyle. A true artist from Midwest whose juxtaposition of soul rock and indie electronic music is conscious of real life struggles. In his songs, the singer-songwriter approaches emotional turmoil with attitude but is nevertheless optimistic at the end of the day. Chavar grew up in Saginaw, MI and Toledo, OH and was formally educated in Guitar Performance at Bowling Green State University where he attended master classes with legendary musicians including Yo Yo Ma and Ray Brown. For the better part of a decade he fronted an alternative rock band that toured the Midwest and the west coast while lending vocals and producing tracks for other artists on the side.
In 2010 Chavar decided to change direction and spearhead a new project
with a radically different style of music. With influences ranging from Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon, and Prince to Imogen Heap, MGMT, and Cee-Lo Green, Chavar is nothing less than innovative with this fresh style of music, while still keeping true to his roots. While maintaining his education in classical and Jazz guitar, Chavar’s debut EP, “indiesoulrocknroll:
bites, but it’s all about wearing a smile on the road between heartache and personal victory.
Chavar will add a great diversity to the musical performances at the Toledo Music Expo. We are very proud to have him on board and are excited for the opportunity to showcase his return to a Toledo Stage for such a great night.
