“Maggie’s sound is inspired by her connection with the outdoors, often drawing inspiration from the movement and rhythm of nature,”
Maggie Rogers releases her first new music of 2018 – the searing, richly layered “Fallingwater,” is out now on EMI Music Australia. The song was produced by Rostam Batmanglij and Rogers. Stream / download “Fallingwater” HERE. The official video will follow next week.
Rogers is a producer, songwriter, and performer from Easton, Maryland. Following her education at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, she released her debut single “Alaska,” which hit #1 on Spotify’s Viral 50 in 23 countries, including the U.S. With more than 80 million global streams to date, it earned Rogers a place on the Spotify Best of 2016 list. Her debut EP, Now That The Light Is Fading, followed in 2017. She has won acclaim from numerous publications, including Rolling Stone, Billboard, V Magazine, Pigeons & Planes and Idolator.
NYLON said, “Maggie Rogers was destined for musical stardom. Not only is her voice absolutely mesmerizing, but it transcends genres as she dabbles with elements of pop, soul, dance and folk.” Pitchfork said, “Rogers’ voice is practically bursting at the seams with originality.” The New Yorker declared, “Maggie Rogers is an artist of her time” and NPR noted, “(Maggie Rogers’) voice is mesmerizing… ‘Alaska’ will go down in history…it has a glacial purity that’s rare in a pop music paradigm that tries so hard to craft the viral enthusiasm Maggie Rogers generated by being herself.”
Rogers has been a favourite of Australian audiences, impressing with a standout live set a Splendour in the Grass last year, and playing sold out sideshows in Melbourne and Sydney. She has also enjoyed multiple “most played” tracks on triple j with cuts from her acclaimed debut album, ‘Now That The Light Is Fading’.
Rogers will be joining HAIM on a series of U.S., U.K. and European dates, including a May 28 show at Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre. She is also set to play numerous festivals including this week’s Boston Calling, June’s Governors Ball, the U.K.’s Reading and Leeds festival and the Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival on September 22 and 23. Rogers will also co-headline the 2018 All Things Go Fall Classic, one of Washington, DC’s largest signature festivals. She and LPX (Lizzy Plapinger) curated the all-female lineup for the festival’s opening day, October 6. Please visit https://www.maggierogers.com/live/ for itinerary.
