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.
