Maggie Rogers is a singer, songwriter, producer and performer from Easton, Maryland. After her education at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, she released her breakout single “Alaska” and subsequent critically acclaimed debut EP, Now That The Light Is Fading. “Alaska” has since charted in Spotify’s Viral 50 in 40 countries, hit #1 in 23 countries and now has over 100 million global combined streams to date. The BBC, Tidal, Google Play, Vevo, Pandora and numerous publications –including Rolling Stone, NYLON, SPIN, Billboard and more – have tipped her as an artist to watch. NPR named her one of its Favorite Musicians and The New Yorker declares, “Maggie Rogers is an artist of her time.”
Rogers has been chosen as the first YouTube Artist On The Rise (AOTR) of 2019. The program features eight artists of varied genres over the course of a year. 2018, the inaugural year of AOTR, featured such artists as Rosalía, Brockhampton, Ella Mai, and many more. Rogers has also been named a Twitter Music #ArtistToFollow. The new program highlights one emerging artist per month by using their Twitter Music profile to showcase their voice and personality.
“Light On” – which is from Rogers’ Capitol Records debut album, Heard It In A Past Life (out now) –topped Billboard’s first Adult Alternative Songs tally of 2019. Rolling Stone awarded the single four stars, and praises “Light On” as “a cathartic counterpoint to today’s pop-empowerment anthems.”Streams of “Light On” surpassed one million globally in under a week and are approaching 25 million.
