KERI LYNN ROCHE


Keri Lynn Roche is a Michigan born and raised, singer/songwriter, who has being playing music since the age of 14. Her earliest influences were primarily female artists such as Tori Amos, Fiona Apple, Sheryl Crow and Ani Difranco.

Keri was recently placed in “top 24” girls on American Idol 2014, Season XIII. The talented musician is back home from her American Idol Hollywood experience and moving forward with a renewed sense of passion and dedication to her craft.

Regarding her initial Detroit audition, Keri explains, “It’s amazing how a three minute clip on national television can affect someone's life.” Indeed, the singer received an enormous amount of positive feedback and new fan support following her multiple performances on the show.

Keri would describe her own style as one that is constantly growing. "I don't offer just one thing, because as a person, I am constantly changing and experimenting. I like to play folk music, I can get gospel, I'm a pop princess and I grew up on alternative rock and grunge so it all is somehow intertwined in the music I write. The one thing that remains consistent is the honesty."

The depth is there, the brutal honesty cryptically intertwined in her songs are valuable to her for more reasons than just making it big in the industry, "This is my medicine. I can't take full responsibility for overcoming personal struggles because I couldn't have done it without music, If I could make it on a larger scale that would be wonderful, but my primary motive has never been fame, it's just the safest place for me to say what I really feel and the fact that people want to listen to it, and want to hear more, is just as baffling as it is flattering."

Roche has had the opportunity to perform at some very well-known national venues including: The House of Blues, The Sandiego Onyx Room, the Venice Beach Boardwalk as well as many local Detroit area stages including: the DIY Music Festival Ferndale, The Blind Pig, The Magic Bag, The Crofoot, PJ's Lager House, The Ark, Taste of Ann Arbor, Ann Arbor Art Fair, Xhedos and Gracie’s Underground. Her new single, “Scar on my Heart” is now available on iTunes and to follow KLR on the web find her on on Twitter: @kerilynnroche, Facebook.com/kerilynnrochemusic, Instagram: itskerilynnroche or kerilynnroche.com
