Jia is a Taiwanese-Canadian indie/alternative artist and singer-songwriter from Vancouver, BC. Her music is a seamless blend of dark western, earthy americana, dream pop and indie rock, inspired by her love for Tarantino films. Her debut EP, "The Melting of the Moon," was recorded at Monarch Studios with City and Colour's band, and three-time Juno-nominated producer Olivia Quan, released on June 28th, 2023.

Jia was selected for the first year of the On The Haus program, where she was offered a fully serviced studio recording session with Juno-nominated producer Alysha Brilla by ArtHaus. She was also selected to participate in the Women in Music x She is the Music (Alicia Keys' organization) Songwriting Bootcamp. 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 wrote and released her first single, “Visitation Dream,” during the pandemic. 

She has performed at venues all across Vancouver, was a Best in Vancouver 2022 semifinalist, and has had her music played in retail spaces such as Lush, Nespresso, Loblaw's, etc. Her work has also been praised in the press, with Darryl from the Tinnitist writing, "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 cites David Bowie, Alexandra Savior, Nancy Sinatra and Mitski as her biggest influences.
