About
Janice Chan was born in Hong Kong. She then moved to Canada when she was 11. She
received a proper classical piano and violin training at the age of 8, and had not started to
expose her music composition area after she entered University under the tutelage of David
K. Macintyre and Owen Underhill (SFU Music), Sutrisno Hartana (SFU Music) in Indonesia
Folk Music Ensemble. She graduated from Simon Fraser University in British Columbia,
Canada with Economics and Music in general. She also obtained Grade10 RCM (Royal
Conservatory of Music) in Piano with Honours and Advanced Certificate in Vocal
Techniques and Performing Vocalist. She later became a CASH (Composers and Authors
Society of HK Ltd) associated and full member since July 2015.
Her journey began when she met some people in the film and music industry in 2012,
which led her to have the debut opportunity to act and compose the original film score for
an independent local movie “Naive不是白痴". At the same time, she performed regularly
with her Pop Acoustic band at a local cafe-restaurant for more than a year until the venue
had closed down for business. Meanwhile, she started to shift herself more to the TV-Film
acting scene under the tutorship of Leslie Ho (HK-UK). Since then, she has been actively
involved herself into many acting projects including Feature & Indie local films, RTHK (TV),
Commerical Ads, Short-films etc until now.
Besides giving out regular private vocal, piano, and music playgroup lesson,
she has decided to further upgraded herself to become one of the top professional jazz
vocalists in Asia by joining jazz camps in Taiwan & Korea at the first place and also actively
participated herself into the local Jazz vocal workshop in 2015 hold by an Australia jazz
vocalist/flautist. Starting in 2017, she has been taking private lessons directly under the
tutelage of jazz vocalists/instrumentalists such as Geila Zilkha (Tokyo, Japan), Wen Tsai
(Taiwan-Belgium), and currently with Bowen Li (HK-UK) for private jazz piano and
arrangement lessons.
Since 2016, Janice has been performing actively around town in venues such as Terrible
Baby@Eaton Hotel, Visage one, Gecko, Peel Fresco, Dada bar & lounge, HMV, Holly Brown
Coffee, Cafe Sausalito, TFVSJS, G&V music cafe, Loststars, Rubato, Blue House Jazz series etc.
She has also performed in MAJI 集食行樂, an outdoor event in Taipei in 2017. She is
currently writing her original music and planning to release her debut album in 1 to 2
years' time. Her goal is to become a top jazz vocalist in town and hopefully in Asia in the
future.
