Beathe Keyler is the artist name of Beathe Kuchler.
She is a songwriter and composer. A musician and a producer.
She was born in 1967 in Bergen , Norway, named Beathe Dyngeland and grew up with parents, one sister and two brothers. 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, energetic 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 wants to share her music with more people, and releases therefore her solo album Come on home in 2006 on her own label.
Beathe has her own indie label called Medea Records B. Kuchler and she is the (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.

Lovende og moden debut fra Bergen! - Fordomsfri sjangerblanding !
Musikken er Rufsete, ekte og rå. En Norsk Bonne Raitt?
Ja, sammenligningen er slett ikke ueffen. Beathe viser faktisk større
musikalsk spennvidde enn den amerikanske rootsdronninga.
Tromsoby.no, Tromsø. Terningkast 5. Author: Tor H. Bergsrud
Dagsavisen, Oslo - En Solid debut!
Ut av nærmest ingenting kommer bergenske Beathe Keyler med en moden debutplate. Vi snakker om en slags viseplate den akustiske gitaren er hovedinstrumentet men langt mer uflidd i kantene. Her er også både country og rock.
Som om ikke det var nok at hun spilte flere instrumenter,har Keyler også produsert albumet selv, noe hun stort sett har hatt en heldig hånd med.Hun har gitt musikken et organisk lydbilde ikke ulikt slik vi er vant til å høre det når Daniel Lanois har styrt spakene.
Dagsavisen, Oslo. Terningkast 4. Author: Thomas Berg

Here`s what the author wrote
The Energetic Singer/Songwriter EP Seven Stars is an energetic four-song rock EP from Norwegian singer/songwriter B. Keyler. B. Keyler brings great vocal styling to the table with an impressive range, a strong voice, and an original delivery reminiscent of KT Tunstall and the cutesy European vocals of Regina Spektor. Seven Stars has four great rock arrangements with melodic and rhythmic tones, nice guitar work, and solos to boot. This EP was self-produced, giving B. Keyler the freedom to perfect her sound, and she succeeds. Its Who I Am features a nice arrangement with great acoustic and electric layering and an excellent vocal performance in which B. Keyler is really displays a great amount of passion in her delivery. I Wish is a more lyrical track, but it also has a nice arrangement, slick reggae guitar work and a great Spektor-esque vocal delivery. Overall, Seven Stars is an impressive showing from a great female vocalist that leaves the listener eager to hear what shell do next. Fans of rhythmic modern rock and original female vocal styling should look into B. Keyler

Organic got selected by URB Magazine, USA and received a magical review 21.01.2009!
URB MAGAZINE - USA
Proclaiming oneself to be the female Van Morrison can be damning for anyone less talented than bluesy vocal powerhouse B. Keyler.
The Norwegian singer/songwriter rediscovered her voice and her acoustic guitar several years into motherhood when her children had all but grown up. Her rich, smoky voice is the sound of a woman who has weathered many storms, seen it all, and has become all the stronger for it. Organic is buoyed by Keyler`s dark, cathartic wails and a menacing, overdriven guitar hook, the perfect musical backdrop for a drive through the warm night air.
