In the family home there where always room for creativity and impulsive acts for both children and grownups, and surrounded with lots of music, dancing and singing she was a very happy child. Beathe sang before she could speak and felt that the music was her path, but eagered also strongly to be a dancer or an actress in her youth. She moved to Oslo, as she was seventeen, and tried to get a chance at the State School of Acting, but without any luck. She was totally devastated for about a month and took the high-school in Oslo instead and went out to work different jobs after that.
After a fantastic Pink Floyd concert in Oslo, nineteen years old , she went out and bought herself her first guitar. After month and years with a lot of practising and playing, tender fingertips and sour tunes, she started making her own songs. Beathe moved to Germany in 1993 and lived there for five years. She got children and used her time getting to know how it is to be a mother.
When the children got older and the guitar found its place in her lap again, she wrote more music and learnt how to play other instruments. Back in Norway today, Beathe Keyler is a mature and free artist in her performance. Beathe has no formal music education, but has studied language and computer-science at the University of Bergen and has also been a teacher, in the Steinerskole (Waldorf) among others. She has been singing & playing in several bands since she was 15 years old, but took her first step in 2005 as a solo artist.
Beathe Keyler prefers the acoustic guitar, but plays the harmonica, keyboards and the Irish Bodhran drum as well. Beathe is very much inspired by Bob Dylan within the folk and rock genre. Beathe Keyler grew up with Pink Floyd and their music, who impressed her to be the kings of sound and who inspired her to buy herself the first guitar. They are still her idols within sound and compositions.
The artist Kari Bremnes inspires Beathe Keyler within the Norwegian music and is her absolute favourite. Beathe Keylers biggest passion is the soul and blues genre and singers like Aretha Franklin and Otis Redding have a special place in her heart! They are just the very best. The temperamental, energic and also the sentimental colours the Keyler-music as it is today. The lyric is both deep and reflected to more challenging.
She makes music within the blues and rock genre, but also jazz and pop. Beathe 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. She wanted to share her music and released her debute solo album Come on home in March 2006 on her own label.
Beathe is the owner of a record company in Bergen, Norway called Medea Records B.Kuchler. Medea records B. Kuchler is the (c) and (p) and responsible publisher of her music and it gives her immense freedom to both be the creating artist and the producer of her own music, even if it takes a lot more extra hours in the office and investments as well. Maybe Beathes education within language and computer-science can be useful after all.
B. Keyler Band members are today playing live as much as they can and they love the stage! The album Organic released 16.01.2009 and is Beathe`s second album and containes 9 songs. It also containes the four songs from her Ep/Cd Seven Stars (2008) and it is , as her debute album Come on home (2006) was, a mix of genres: Blues, Rock, Pop, World and also Jazz tracks!
