Jia Ruan Is Storming the Internet With His Unique Instrumental Compositions
“Music is a language that doesn’t speak in particular words. It speaks in emotions, and if it’s in the bones, it’s in the bones.” ― Keith Richards
The quote above is certainly true for musicians who can invoke emotions by composing unique sounds. Rising music artist and composer Jia Ruan is a shining example here. This highly talented 24-year-old is creating waves in the music industry with his unconventional musical compositions. He blends the sounds of the violin with fast drum beats and a piano or a flute with a bass guitar. This unique sound combination creates music that is familiar yet cutting-edge.
Jia stepped into the music industry with his debut track “Vibrations,” released in January 2021. To make his first instrumental release memorable, Jia named his YouTube channel after it. Though “Vibrations” did not bring the expected response for Jia in the first few days, it started gaining crazy popularity from the second week after its release. Within a month, “Vibrations” earned more than 2 million views on YouTube and was trending on other digital platforms like Spotify. Currently, “Vibrations” has garnered more than 8 million views on YouTube, becoming a social media trend. The number of hits on Spotify has crossed 5 million.
“Vibrations” marked his official entry into the world of music as a unique composer who can create magic with sounds. Jia doesn’t rely on words to convey his emotions to the audience. He can do that pretty well with sounds. Whether grief, anger, ecstasy, or love, “Vibrations” combines every emotion through sound. Even 8 months after its release on YouTube, the track is still trending among music enthusiasts from across the world. It is a track for every mood and every occasion.
The expertise of creating unique sounds from common musical instruments was not initially easy for Jia. His passion for music drove him to explore every instrument in a unique way that has perhaps never been done before, thanks to his job as a salesman at a music store. It was through this job that he realized his calling in creating sounds. His mother, a music teacher, has been his biggest support and guide throughout his journey to stardom.
Once living the life of a multimillionaire to earning his living as a bagger at a grocery store and then a salesman, Jia has been through several hardships to reach where he is now. After the sudden death of his father, he had to quit college to support his family. It was out of desperation that Jia wanted to discover a way to improve his financial situation. Music became his passion as he started discovering his inner artist.
The journey that started with learning musical instruments gradually paved the way towards stardom for Jia. He owes his success to his fans and his mother. He loves to engage with his fans on social media through music tutorials or going live on Facebook. Jia wants to share his stories with more aspiring artists to motivate them to bounce back even after reaching rock bottom.
