Rose Turtle Ertler has been a musician all her life, growing up in Tasmania with regular sing-songs around the family piano.
She lived in Sydney for fifteen years from the age of 18 where she made lots of strange pop music,
performance art & theatre with a bunch of amazing people.
After numerous trips to Europe touring and playing music for theatre shows, Rose relocated south of the border
to Melbourne where she started to instigate music/performance project with a community focus.
Some of her current projects focus on challenging misinformed stereotypes of elder people and refugees.
Rose also performs her original music solo and also has a pop/punk band called The Night Before Tomorrow
which evolved out of her work at a disability service in Melbourne.
Rose is a member of the Black Orchid Stringband with musicians from the Melbourne West Papuan community
After five years in central Victoria, Rose relocated back to northern Tasmania in December 2018 after 31 years on the mainland.
