After years as a bassist and guitarist in bands in the Dallas area, Donnie Chambliss has brought forth his lyrical skills and ventured into the hip/hop sphere. A 27 year old from Detroit, now living in Dallas, Donnie grew up influenced by the rap/hip-hop culture but picked up bass guitar at 14, getting heavily involved in rock bands. For years, he played in rock/metal/punk bands, studied music in college, toured and has slowly crafted his skill. He wanted to take all his influences and make them his own so he went solo. Firstly, under the name "DonnCham," he showcased his creative musical style and motivational rhymes on his mixtapes, PRIMETIME and DARK AGES. He went on to change his name to "Donn Chii" to match his ambitious spirit and positive mindset. His passion is what sets him apart and is clear through his music and life. He continues to expand his musical résumé in the studio, through live performances and collaborations with other local artists.
