Chad Beloin showed a passion for music ever since the age of 3, when he picked up a pair of drum sticks and laid out a rhythm the first time he ever set eyes on a drum kit. It didn’t stop there though. Since then, Chad learned how to play the piano, guitar and bass guitar, as well as started writing lyrics, composing piano bars and writing guitar structures. ? In 2004, Chad decided he wanted to begin recording his first demo album. Since 2005, Chad has released uncountable amounts of original demo albums, the most popular being 2012’s Infamous and Next To Me. When Fantasy began receiving attention by industry professionals in Hollywood, Calif., Chad decided it was time to start recording his debut album. ? In the early summer of 2012, Chad began writing and recording several promotional demos to decide the true direction of his music that was suitable to fans and true to himself. It wasn’t until August, however, that the first official single was released for his debut. ? August held place to the writing, recording and release of Trouble, produced by Strobelight Productions. Even though the vibe from the track felt of success, Chad was unsure whether or not it would be favourable among the public listener. When the song began promotion, however, the vibe of success turned into a reality. Since it’s release, over 100 public reviews have been made, and each one has came back positive.
Home Free – Home Free was released in 2010 under D*North Records. Originally planned for release on July 10th, 2010, however, Chad Beloin was incarcerated on charges of Assault and Mischief, so Home Free’s released was pushed back until August July 30, 2010.

In the Summer of 2012, Chad moved to Tisdale, Sakatchewan, to finish production and begin recording the remainder of the record, however two weeks into recording, Chad decided to switch direction of the record and shift to a more mainstream sound. In the Winter of 2012, Chad relocated to Melfort, Saskatchewan to record some of the most memorable songs from the record, including “What If”, “Hold Me”, a demo of “Game” and a demo of “Rebel”. After two months of recording, Chad went back to Tisdale to finish the remainder of the album, recording “Don’t Let Me Go”, “Lose Control”, “Rebel”, and “Game” at Studio 66A, and “Fantasy” at Studio 66B. The record was originally to be released in 2011, however Chad waited until January 15th, 2012, to follow his release schedule scheme. On January 5, Chad recorded “I Gotta Have You Again”, to be released on a limited edition copy of Infamous, however was taken off the roster due to it being an experimental track.

In 2012, Chad Beloin discovered and partnered with recording artist Zane “Lil-Z” Bolig from North Battleford, Saskatchewan, with plans to equally invest into the recording label “Vitality Records” and the coinciding clothing brand, “Vitality”. During the lifespan of the Vitality brand, four records were produced, written, recorded, and released. Two months into the recording of “No Direction” by “Vytal Lines”, a duo formed by Chad and Zane respectively, arguments arose as to the dedication on Zane’s behalf, resulting in Chad releasing a full-length, unedited album from Lil-Z titled “Exposed” to YouTube, aimed at ruining brand reputability. The arguments were resolved, and the partnership continued as planned. Shortly after the incident, “Vytal Lines” released the “No Direction” promo, featuring the promotional release songs “I’mma Make It”, “Careless World”, and “No Direction featuring Lost Child” (John Benson- Shadow and CJee, Black Theory respectively), gaining 20,000 views between the three during their lifespan on YouTube. Shortly after the promo was made available, the duo released another YouTube hit, titled Burning Up, written by Chad Beloin and Zane Bolig (respectively), and produced by Shadowville Productions. The single and music video both generated 10,000 views within the first week. After the release of Burning Up, a final incident occurred, putting the partnership on hold, resulting in the content from the partnerships duration to be terminated. Two months later, the partnership resumed, resulting in a release from Lil-Z titled “The Good Guy”, released in 2012. Shortly after, Chad began writing and recording demos for a new record, however couldn’t find a proper style. Zane began work on his second recording album with Vitality, titled “The Chronicles”, to be released in November of 2012, however, before the record was finished, the recording equipment had to be shipped away for service. After a month of servicing, the equipment was returned to the studio, and Zane recorded three more songs for the record, one written by Chad Beloin. Two weeks later, a final argument arose, and the partnership between Chad Beloin and Lil-Z was terminated indefinitely, leaving the rights of the Vitality brand to Chad Beloin and shareholder Jonah McAdam, the current acting partner of Vitality Entertainment.
