Music is a language that can connect to listeners without words. This is especially true for Jia Ruan, the promising music composer and instrumentalist on social media who became a viral trend after his debut release “Vibrations.” The track was launched in January 2021 and earned more than 2 million views on YouTube within weeks. It brought a wave of fresh and pure music to the audience that invoked intense emotions like passion, love, joy, and grief without using any lyrics. “Vibrations” is an instrumental track that combines unconventional sounds to create energetic yet soul-soothing music.
To date, “Vibrations” has earned more than 8 million views on YouTube and over 5 million hits on Spotify. It also became a viral track on the digital music streaming platform for a couple of months. The roaring success of “Vibrations” officially marked Jia’s entry into the music industry. Besides the overwhelming response from music enthusiasts across the world, “Vibrations” also got him several offers to work with renowned music artists across the world.
Jia is now taking the game low and slow to reach higher. He is cautious about the projects he will work on because he wants to live up to the expectations of his audience. He wants to adhere to his unique perception of music that is fulfilling and self-sufficient without words or lyrics. Going forward, he will be working on projects that will not categorize music with lyrics. Jia believes that music is universal and sounds have the appeal and feel to connect with listeners on a deeper level. The moment we put words or lyrics into a piece of music, we narrow the reach of that music to a certain section of people who understand that language. This is not fulfilling or real music.
As a salesman at a music shop, Jia spent hours learning different musical instruments with his mother, a music teacher, guiding him through. Because of his experimental and fearless nature, Jia was able to produce unique sounds from common musical instruments. He used them in “Vibrations” to create magic and will recreate the same in his next release, “Reverberate,” due out by the end of this year.
While Jia is excited to promote his upcoming release on social media, he has also revealed a series of plans for the future that will keep audiences hooked to socials. Jia is planning to launch his virtual music school to help music lovers learn music composition and various instruments through online classes. Through this initiative, he will be paving the way for fresh talent in the industry who can follow in his footsteps.
Jia Ruan is also working on a couple of projects with other prominent musicians in New York. From what he has revealed so far on his Facebook Live feeds, the artist is composing music with a popular DJ whose name he doesn’t want to reveal just yet. This exciting project is expected to reach the audience by early 2022.
Going by his plans for the next couple of years, it seems like Jia’s fans won’t have to wait long to be enthralled by his music. with such optimistic projects, Jia will soon become an A-lister in the industry in the coming years.
