Jia is a Taiwanese-Canadian singer-songwriter from Vancouver, BC. She draws creative and personal inspiration from indie rock, desert rock, psychedelic rock, and dream pop genres. Her work interrogates lived experience and emotions, and opens doors for listeners to process their own forgotten feelings. Her masterful marriage of nostalgic styles, sounds, influences and archetypes are seamlessly smeared all together into woozy, seductive tales of obsession, desertion, and heartbreak— while hinting at events and motives that are far more malevolent and mysterious. She is heavily influenced by artists such as Nancy Sinatra, Alexandra Savior, The Last Shadow Puppets and David Bowie, as well as the films and soundtracks of Quentin Tarantino, most notably the Kill Bill films.


Born in Taipei and raised in Vancouver, she grew up singing and performing in church and at school talent shows from a young age. She always loved music, but only started to write her own original material after a study abroad trip to Barcelona during her university studies inspired her to pursue music seriously. She wrote and released her first original, “Visitation Dream,” during the pandemic.


Since then, Jia has performed at venues all around Vancouver, was a Best in Vancouver 2022 semi-finalist, and has worked with some of the most talented musicians and producers that BC has to offer while recording her debut EP, "The Melting of the Moon," at Monarch Studios, which will be officially released on June 28th. Her music has been played on Unsigned BC’s Co-Op Radio, and in retail stores such as Lush, DSW, Shoe Company, Sobey’s, Metro, Loblaw’s, and Nespresso, through Stingray Music. Her work has also been praised in the press, with Elsa Bansi from Unorthodox Reviews stating, “Jia is a force to look out for. Her experimental blend of genres and eloquent sound is pure auditory bliss.”
