Growing up between two cultures and surrounded by music Luna Keller is a singer-songwriter with a unique perspective fueled by her curiosity and a deep connection to her emotions through songwriting.

Whooz Kameltoe? I’m a songwriter who has always approached life at a unique angle. My blessing/curse is a hypercritical eye for what everyone else seems to accept at face value.

When the time came to sit through college, my butt was sore; I packed a bag and hit the road without any money, resources, or expectations. This adventure lasted an unexpected and exciting four years!

These are the experiences my songwriting comes from. From family classics like “kill me while i’m young” to holiday favorites like “I’ll hail satan”. My crazy songs are all true stories.
