TruBlend was formed in the summer of 2003 in Cleveland, Ohio. The group started as a trio, but one member left to pursue other interests leaving the former trio a duo. With their smooth vocals and R&B sound, they have been compared with the old school R&B singers and have taken the city by storm and built quite a fan base. Between performances TruBlend is writing and producing songs for their first full length CD. They opened for national recording star Glenn Jones when he performed in Cleveland, and they have also performed in Chicago Ill. and Dayton, Akron and Columbus and Middlefield,Ohio. TruBlend consists Chas Nichols and Mateo Davis. Chas also produces TruBlend's music and is a member of the songwriting team that includes his wife Chris and singing partner Mateo. Neither member is a stranger to the stage, both having grown up performing in various church choirs, musicals and talent shows. A few of TruBlend's performances in and around Cleveland include; Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, The Hard Rock Cafe, Central State University BET TV Fashion/Talent Show, Village TV on Adelphia Cable, WTR TV on Time Warner cable, WERE FM 1300 Radio Show, Cleveland Intercity Yacht Club, American Heart Association Benefit Concert, Presidential Candidate John Kerry/Black Caucus Rally, 1st Place in a citywide Stars of Tomorrow competition, and numerous festivals and benefits.
