Singer Chuanzi (real name Jiang Yachuan) was once a troubled teenager and was imprisoned for assault when he was just 18 years old. After being released from jail at the age of 25 he tried to reconnect with old friends but none of them seemed willing to reunite with him.

With his prison record, it was touch for Chuanzi to find a regular job, subsequently he then started his career as a bar singer until he had saved enough money to open his own bar called "Riff Music Factory."

Chuanzi performance on "China's Got Talent" (Chinese reality show similar to America's Got Talent) shot him into the spotlight.
