Bio

Whimsical folk vocals and hope infused, introspective story telling are mixed with shimmery, glitchy electronica to make Rose Carrousel's hand-made, beautiful folktronica (and occasional forays into electro). She is joined on stage by the lovely Jess who sews new beautiful things live, yes with a sewing machine. The name Rose Carrousel is inspired by the ideas of looking at the world through rose coloured glasses...the way a carousel turns and spins and offers constantly new perspectives. And Rose Carrousel references the French spelling to connect her affection for the joy of French culture and the original carousel in Montmartre that inspired her name. Production credentials: Heidi is an electronic music producer and vocalist, who makes lyrically driven electronica on her own as “Rose Carrousel” and with her band “My Cerulean Heart”. She is also a remixer and events coordinator. She has performed or released in France, England, the USA, Slovakia, and Australia. Her track “Street Lights” was selected for inclusion on "Twelve: The Best of IMP’s 100 Songs Project 2011" (part of QUT’s Independent Music Project (IMP)) and her track “Little Beat” was nominated for a QSong Award (2008). Through the Lady Electronic collective she is a successful Australia Council and Arts Queensland grant recipient. She uses Ableton Live software.Her vocal and production styles have been compared with Imogen Heap, Bat for Lashes, Miss Kittin and M83.

Simple and sweet is a good way to describe this. Some breathy vocals and interesting electronic production mix with the vintage pop beat.
