Meet Maggie Rogers – The Rising Star That Got Pharrell’s Stamp Of Approval

Posted on June 05, 2018

Prepare to be blown away

You know you’re on the right track when musical genius Pharrell Williams is stunned by what you’ve got. Previously a student at New York University’s Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music, Maggie Rogers was discovered when Pharrell stopped by for a masterclass listening session.

Maggie unassumingly played her song “Alaska” and Pharrell was immediately impressed by it. He described the song as a sound unlike anything he’s heard before. That’s huge coming from someone as established in the music industry as Pharrell, especially at the very beginning of your career as an artist.

Last year Billboard touted her as one of 2017’s ‘Artists to Breakout,’ while Spotify named her the ‘Best of 2016 – Ultimate Indie.’ If that wasn’t enough, her first-ever North American headline tour sold out more than two months in advance of it’s launch. 

Fast-forward and Maggie has come back with an absolute hit called “Falling Water”. Taking to her insta, Maggie declared, “this is a song about rapid change.” 

Have a listen – it’ll become a quick favourite of yours. Guaranteed.

The video is also out and it is one of the most visually pleasing things you will ever lay your eyes on. Have a watch:
