“Music never sleeps” – the saying holds true to Jason Chen, a Taiwanese-American pop singer who hasn’t stopped developing his passion for music.

With a musical background in violin, Chen began singing at the tender young age of 17. During his 2nd year of college, his dorm mates encouraged him to upload videos of himself singing on YouTube, where he gained a sizable following. Little did he know, the videos are the ones that would change his life.

Chen is notable for his acoustic covers of popular hit singles like “Grenade”, “Tong Hua”, and “Set Fire to the Rain”. However, he is best known for “Best Friend”, a self-composed hit single from his first album “Gravity”. He then relesed a few more singles and 4 full albums, one of which is entirely in Mandarin.

Through the ever-growing YouTube community, he evolved from performing covers to producing and performing original music. He even built his own studio and created a merchandise line for his brand “Music Never Sleeps”. It’s not surprising that he has already garnered over 1 million subscribers and over 200 million video views on his official YouTube channel
