Chen named one of his songs after the city Erguna in Inner Mongolia autonomous region where he was born. He majored in media studies in college yet became a folk singer.

Born in 1989, Chen got his first guitar in 2002 and independently composed his first song in 2005. He issued two albums last year and one this year. His music is influenced by Hong Kong band Beyond and American rock band Nirvana.

Chen's songs are popular for their simple and pure lyrics and melodies.
