Chorus is an upcoming artist out of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Chorus was born and raised in the Pittsburgh area, his birthname is Shane Chorus Bourne. His father, Tim Petty, gave him the name Chorus when he was born because he believed that one day he would find a place in music when he got older. 24 years later, here we are! Chorus got his start in Hip Hop at a very young age. As soon as he learned to read and write, he was constantly writing poems and short stories but when he was 8 years old when he wrote his very first song. By 13 years old, Chorus knew that music was his passion. After struggling financially and being forced to move to Hampton, Virginia where he didn’t have any friends or much family there, Chorus spent most of his time buried in his notebook writing songs to Express how he felt. By 15 years old he was back living in Pittsburgh with his family and finally decided to take the next step and start recording the songs he was writing. Ever since then he has never stopped writing and recording.
Chorus released 8 full length mixtapes during the course of his junior and senior years of high school. The quality was low but his potential was astonishing! After graduating high school in 2011, Chorus took a couple years off from releasing music to really focus on mastering his craft as an artist. He did not release another project until November of 2016, which is considered his first professional release titled, Ways of the Game. That album is available on all major streaming platforms. In March of 2017, Chorus released a follow up EP titled Into the Shadows, which can also be found on all major streaming platforms. Then in April, Chorus was granted the opportunity to open up for industry artist K Camp on his Rockstar Crazy Tour at Club Diesel in Pittsburgh.
