Maggie Rogers was discovered in 2016 by Pharrell Williams when she played her original song "Alaska" to him for an NYU masterclass. While that song only took her 15 minutes to compose, it became a hit after Williams' reaction to the song went viral. Rogers' newfound fame drew attention to her earlier 2012 album Echo, which she recorded in a broom closet, and her 2014 album Blood Ballet. Rogers has since released three new singles and two additional albums. Rogers' latest album, Heard It in a Past Life, hit No. 2 on the US Billboard 200, which shows that her success was more than just a social media blip. Rogers continues to write and produce songs as well as perform live around the country.
Small Steps to Success
Maggie Rogers was interested in music from an early age. As a seven year old, she started playing the harp, a rare instrument for someone of her age. Her mother often encouraged her to listen to a variety of artists from Antonio Vivaldi to Lauryn Hill. This gave Rogers a solid musical foundation in the classical and neo-soul genres. Her acumen as a musician and songwriter led to her winning a Berklee College of Music songwriting contest. Rogers is unique in that she has synesthesia, which allows her to see colors when she hears music. Her music pushes listeners to get in tune with whatever deep-seated emotions they may be feeling at the time. In her later musical career, Rogers was inspired by Patti Smith and Bjork. Rogers has appeared on several talk shows, including The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Today and Saturday Night Live.
