Early Life and Education
Growing up in the energetic city of Milan, Rose Villain’s love of singing first became apparent to her in elementary school. Her upbringing as the daughter of a powerful Milanese businessman exposed her to environments that would eventually influence the development of her creative character. Her love of music was fostered by her upbringing in Milan with her family and younger brother Alessandro, taking her on a path that took her beyond national borders.
Rose Villain moved to Los Angeles at the age of 18. She enrolled at the Musicians Institute of Hollywood here, specializing in rock and concentrating on modern music. Her experience in Los Angeles helped her develop her songwriting abilities in addition to honing her musical abilities. She provided vocals for The Villains, a punk rock cover band, during this time.
Rose Villain’s love of music and her initial managers, Mark Gartenberg and Eric Beall, connected through strategic mentoring.

Rose Villain decided to separate ways in 2020 despite partnering with their company, Adesso.

This achievement set her up for the historic year of 2020 when she became a household name in music thanks to the quadruple platinum-certified hit “Chico,” which she co-wrote with Italian rapper Guè Pequeno.
