Maggie Rogers

21/05/2019 - 21/05/2019 Maggie Rogers

Acclaimed US producer-songwriter-performer Maggie Rogers returns to Australia in May 2019, following on from a huge Splendour in the Grass 2017 debut and accompanying sideshows. Rising to fame after being discovered by Pharell Williams in a NYU masterclass, Rogers’ debut EP ‘NOW THAT THE LIGHT IS FADING’ was released to critical acclaim. With the success of viral tracks such as ‘Alaska’, which has accrued 100 million+ global combined streams to date, plus ‘On + Off’, ‘Give a Little’ and more, the release of debut album ‘HEARD IT IN A PAST LIFE’ on January 18, 2019 is hotly anticipated. “Rogers’ performance is inspiring and moving.” – Medium “Her voice is arresting. Her eye-catching dance moves, featuring a flurry of swinging limbs and periods of spinning across the stage” – The Independent Rogers recently delivered a stunning rendition of album single ‘Fallingwater’ on Saturday Night Live, which Rolling Stone called “flawless”. She presents thoughtful indie-pop, using organic percussion alongside lyrics of activism and heartache; Rogers’ approach is truly unique – translating to a glistening live show.
