Milyssa Rose is a passionate and multi-talented Pop Artist who was born in Detroit, Michigan. At age six, her family moved to Marietta, Georgia, where she currently resides. Since day one, she knew with every fiber of her being, that entertainment was her ultimate aspiration. Growing up, the arts were always of primary focus. Milyssa participated in Community Theatre, modeling, various commercials, and numerous talent shows. To further perfect her musical craft, Milyssa also has been studying with a vocal coach for many years, and recently starting taking piano lessons.
Upon high school graduation, Milyssa delved in reality-based talent searches. However, her initial gut feeling led her to the following conclusion: becoming an overnight celebrity was not the path of success that she desired. During her late teens, she began writing lyrics and experimenting with a wide variety of production teams. Time and time again, producers refused to take musical risks, which Milyssa yearned for. Her chief aim was and currently is to be a one-of-a-kind artist that challenges the status quo and deviates from the typical sound of mainstream artists. One-hundred percent determined to be a star, she signed to an indie label. Unfortunately, that label came across some hard times and she was released from her contract. Not letting that get her down, she joined forces with Strong Foundation & Co., Papi Hey of 2 Gran Productions, Shazam X of Ugly Face Productions, Chethan Music, and Major Moves Recording Studios. Milyssa felt that being more involved in the creative process would expand her horizons and evolve her innate skills.
Milyssa gives a new spin to the title, “Pop Artist.” Her voice has an undeniable edge and is both powerful and soulful with a dynamic range.

As she continues to expand her talents and think outside the box, her approach continues to be versatile.
