Measure, danish west coast pop with AOR touch…

In 1991 the group Measure released the album “Close To The Madding Crowd”. With the leadsinger Jan Klausen in front and Jesper King (keyboards) & Kim Johansen (drums, percussion) they made an album with songs that was a mix of pop, AOR & westcoast.

The album were produced by Thomas Brekling, the topproducer, that took this band to a higher level. Unfortunally this was the only release by the band, after a good commercial success they didn´t manage to make a follow-up album.
