Multi-instrumentalist, Producer/Song writer Rosie Gaines is the youngest of 10 children. Her first band was a family funk soul group called Unity, with Rosie on organ, her brother Carl on bass, her cousin Lacy on guitar, sister-in-law Dianne on background vocals and her sister Mal on drums.

Rosie also played in a band called The Oasis and A Touch of Class, before joining The Curtis Ohlson Band (with Levi Seacer Jr. on guitar). Levi called Rosie one day and asked her to come to Minneapolis to sing a demo of a song for The Pointer Sisters. While she was doing the demo, Prince came in the studio and asked her to join his band The New Power Generation. Prince often referred to Rosie as his "...lion in my pocket and her name is Rosie G.", and his "Secret Weapon".

Rosie was introduced to the public in 1990 as the new vocalist and keyboard player on Prince's Nude tour. The first time we heard her on a Prince album, was on Graffiti Bridge. She was also a member of The NPG in the movie (by the same name) and she performed and wrote on the Diamonds And Pearls album. In 1992, after the Diamonds And Pearls tour, Rosie decided it was time for her to go solo again.

She left The NPG in 1993 but continued to work on and off with Prince throughout the years. Then Rosie started recording her debut solo album. Unfortunately, after several album worth of material were recorded, the album, set for release on Paisley Park Records, was hopelessly entangled in the legal battle between O(+> and Warner Bros. And it was never released.

Rosie’s debut album for Motown opens with the "I Want You". It also contains My Tender Heart (composed by Rosie Gaines, Dana Bailey, and Francis Jules, the Dredlix team.), the song she performed on The Ryde Dyvine TV-special in late 1992.

With her own record label, Dredlix Records, Rosie is striving to bring her music directly to music lovers via the Internet. In 1997 she released an internet only album "Arrival", limited to 2,000 copies, it was available exclusively through her official web site. In 2003 she released her critically acclaimed album 'You Gave Me Freedom' through Dome Records in the UK. Rosie
is currently recording a new album for SUSU Records.
