Nom de naissance
Margaret Debay Rogers
25 Avril 1994, Easton, Maryland, United States
With just two self-recorded, home-produced albums and a single viral hit to her name, Maggie Rogers is a product of the modern age in music where, through Internet exposure, she has achieved worldwide recognition in a very short time. Her debut album 'The Echo', recorded in 2012, is a collection of ten songs which Rogers used as part of her application to attend The Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music in New York. Having secured a place at the Institute Rogers went on to record her second album 'Blood Ballet' in 2014. Both albums are written in a folk-influenced, indie style.
While on a studying trip to Europe, Rogers' exposure to electronic music led to a change of style and the creation of the song 'Alaska', a piece written about her experiences with R&B producer Pharrell Williams. A video showing the emotional response of Williams listening to the track went viral resulting in hundreds of thousands of plays of 'The Echo' and 'Blood Ballet'. The level of interest generated by 'Alaska' prompted Rogers to release a finished version of the song. EP 'Now That the Light Is Fading' was released in 2017 with her third full-length album 'Heard It in a Past Life' following in 2019.
