Keel Her Lyrics Follow
Keel Her is the musical recording project of Rose Keeler-Schaffeler, from Winchester (UK). She began writing and recording "bedroom" music in 2007 for therapeutic reasons, and has continued this as part of her daily routine since. As a child, Rose learnt the violin, but is largely a self-taught musician; she plays guitar, bass, keyboards and sings. Rose has described her writing process as being like a "stream of consciousness". She frequently collaborates with musicians including friend and lo-fi bedroom musician R. Stevie Moore, and has worked with other artists such as Hot Sugar, Linda Smith, Nikki Kvarnes (Those Darlin's) and Sean Armstrong (Spinning Coin).
In 2012 when living in Brighton, Rose signed to Critical Heights (sister label of Fire Records) where she released three singles and a self-titled LP. Rose left the label in 2015, choosing to self-release and work with independent labels.
The Keel Her debut album (self-titled) was released by Critical Heights in 2014, however her extensive repertoire can be downloaded online; with over 20 releases on Bandcamp (for free or donation) and new demos which are regularly uploaded to Soundcloud. She currently resides in London and is recording her second album at home (release date tbc).
Rose has played many gigs around the UK with various different lineups, supporting artists such as The Charlatans and R. Stevie Moore. She has historically expressed her lack of desire to play shows, due to both stage anxiety and lack of interest in "live music", stating she prefers the process of writing and recording music and never considered herself a natural performer, however more recently has expressed an interest in playing live shows again .
