Songwriter and composer
Keyler has a special liking for words. She has
worked a lot with words and lyrics, and being able to combine this
with her own musical compositions gives her immense pleasure. A
very intense and painstaking work, she finds it is a great gift
and strength to be able to do just this.
Her music genre is blues and folk rock but also Pop and Jazz, and the
music is pervaded by her own emotions. The Keyler music is both
temperamental, energetic and sentimental. She is uniquely interested
in her audience and you will experience her as the artist together
with whom you passionately immerse in the music.
Beathe Keyler has written/composed about 30-40 songs
from 1993 up till 2007, most of them with English lyrics. She composed
some of them together with the guitarist Frank Bjørø,
drummer Atle N. Nilsen and bass player Roger Langvik, a collaboration (of the Years 2000-2002)
which gave her an extra boost on the musical path. Roger Langvik also recorded her debute album in his studio in Gothenburg (Sweden) in 2006 and did a great work both as a technician, co-musician, mixing and finding the right musicians to join her recordings of the Come on home album.
Beathe Kuchler started to perform as B. Keyler in 2005, and founded her own band in 2007:
