Who is Chappell Roan ?

Kayleigh Rose Amstutz, better known by her stage name Chappell Roan, emerges as a captivating figure in the realm of American music. Hailing from the heart of Missouri, Roan’s journey from a conservative, Christian upbringing to a vibrant and unapologetically queer artist is as compelling as her music itself. Born on February 19, 1998, in the small town of Willard, Missouri, Roan’s earliest years were imbued with the struggles of navigating a community that didn’t fully embrace her identity.

Raised as the oldest of four children in a trailer park, Roan’s upbringing was marked by the tensions of a conservative and homophobic environment. Despite the constraints, her creative spirit found solace in music, igniting a passion that would become her guiding light. Learning to play the piano at a young age, Roan’s talent blossomed, leading her to her first public performance at just 13 years old. But it was her teenage years marked by sneaking out to escape the confines of her upbringing that hinted at the rebel spirit fueling her future artistry.

Roan’s musical journey took flight when she uploaded her original song “Die Young” to YouTube at the age of 17. The song’s raw emotion and haunting melodies caught the attention of industry insiders, propelling her into the spotlight and ultimately securing a record deal with Atlantic Records. Renaming herself in homage to her late grandfather, Roan embarked on a musical odyssey that would see her blend the influences of 80s synth-pop with the flamboyance of drag culture, earning her the moniker of “campy” in the music scene.
