The muses of La Musa: Keeley Forsyth

Born and raised in Oldham in the north-west of England, Keeley Forsyth first made her name as an actor, but while the creation of music has been a constant feature in her life, she’s taken the long road to its release. A deeply intuitive and singular musician, she began writing several years ago, accompanying herself on harmonium and accordion.

The songs comprising Keeley Forsyth’s debut, an intimate document of personal change, are, she states simply, “like blocks of metal that drop from the sky.” The image’s severity is indicative of the album which provoked it. With its minimal arrangements placing her recollections and dissections of sometimes harrowing experiences front and centre, Debris showcases her elemental voice and an outpouring of candid, haunting lyrics detailing the seismic ruptures which take place behind closed doors.
