Many of you will know Jenna Fan as the daughter-in-law of Angela Fan, the Founder of Study Links. Jenna has recently recorded her first single as part of her duo, Perfect Measure, available to listen to here:
Here’s some background about Perfect Measure…
We began singing together in May 2018 and gave our first performance as a bit of a ‘one off’. However, we enjoyed it so much and the response was so good that we decided to form a duo. Hence ‘Perfect Measure’ was formed. The name references American terminology for a ‘bar’ of music. We both have musical backgrounds and like to sing a wide variety of songs from classic pop and musicals through to modern chart tunes.
Alison George is a trained actor, singer, musician and singing teacher/vocal coach, and has been working professionally for many years. She has a vast experience in musical theatre (including actor-musician shows) and has performed throughout the UK and the West End in plays, Shakespeare and children’s theatre productions as well as musicals. You may also have seen Alison on the large and small screens in film and television productions including some popular soaps: Emmerdale, Coronation Street and Hollyoaks. She is a singing teacher and vocal coach (@alisongeorgeuksingingteachery) teaching children and adults as well as being Musical Director for the Wakefield Theatre Royal Performance Academy.
Jenna Fan began playing piano at the age of 4 and continued her musical education learning classical guitar aged 9. She has always been involved with choirs and in 2017 started Local Vocals Pop Choir. Since then her music company ‘Fanfare Music’ (@fanfaremusic.co.uk) has grown from strength to strength and she has 2 subsequent choirs; a seniors choir in Horbury and ‘Sing With Me!’ for adults and under 5s to sing together. She teaches piano from her home in Ossett to both children and adults.
We’ve been fortunate enough to perform in a variety of venues recently including several choir concerts for Local Vocals and Sandal Singers, where we do a few of our songs to mix up the programme. Last Autumn we did our own lunchtime concert at Wakefield Cathedral which was really well received. We’ve also played a full afternoon’s set at Cinta in Ossett last year bringing the sunshine to the bank holiday where we played a wide variety of songs including live piano accompaniments from us both.
Our repertoire is varied and covers several musical genres, pop, folk, musical theatre, jazz and blues. We like to put an acoustic twist on some more well known songs and one of our favourites is a Glee inspired interpretation of Lady Gaga’s Poker Face.
We’re currently looking for new performing opportunities at bars, restaurants, weddings, corporate events, drinks receptions etc so if you have an event in mind that needs some classy ladies then please do look over our Facebook Page where you’ll find photos, videos and more information.
We’ve also got the ‘recording’ bug and our aim is to record our own album. We’d love to work on some original material so if you’re a budding song-writer who needs some help with the vocals or artists to record, or if you’re a Producer with some interesting ideas then please again get in touch via our Facebook page @PerfectMeasureUK.
