You probably found out about the musical songbird/goddess Maggie Rogers by seeing this video which went viral:
During a Masterclass with Pharrell at NYU, Rogers introduced her track and told the class that “It’s good for now, it would probably need a couple more hours of mixing and mastering”. Not soon after the track started playing her song blew the mind of Pharrell and everyone else watching in cyberspace. The song played was her track now named “Alaska” and after listening to the finished track 10,000 more times, I am still neither sick of it or any less moved than I was when I first heard it.
Following the brilliance of “Alaska” Maggie Rogers released equally beautiful “Dog Years” a stunning, storytelling love song with effortless vocals and harmonies we can’t get enough of (or out of our heads). If anyone had a great 2016 it was truly Rogers (and in my opinion so did we for getting to hear her music). With her upcoming tour and more new music on it’s way it seems that 2017 will only get better for us all.
Maggie Rogers announced a massive tour from January through April hitting many cities in the US and Europe including a sold-out show in Philadelphia at the Foundry on April 7th. For a full list of tour dates, tickets and more information visit her website here.
