Rotosound artist, Keith Rosier is a bassist, songwriter, and record producer who played his first professional gig when he was only 13 years old.
Around the time that he was learning how to play bass, Rosier led his own trio. Upon leaving his home state of Texas for Los Angeles, CA, when he was 19, he soon found work recording and touring with such leading artists as Hoyt Axton, and Steve Gillette.
With Axton, he embarked on his first tour, traveling through Europe, The UK and the U.S. Rosier later became acquainted with drummer John Molo of Bruce Hornsby & the Range.
