Rogers is touring in support of her Capitol Records debut album, Heard It In A Past Life, which enteredBillboard’s Top Album Sales chart at No. 1 and charted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200. It has sold nearly 200,000 album adjusted units to date with cumulative streams across all tracks exceeding 400 million. Her current single,“Light On,” topped Billboard’s Adult Alternative Songs chart for two consecutive weeks. Rogers recently performed “Burning,” another track from the album, on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.” View here.
In this feature, The New York Times said, “‘Heard It in a Past Life’ is a collection of buoyant electronic pop songs, but the lyrics are unmistakably the work of an introvert struggling to recalibrate.” Rolling Stone awarded the album four stars and hailed it as “a laser focused statement with nary a wasted lyric or synth line.” TIME said, “The album confirms Rogers as a tender but powerful musical force, putting her in the company of a group of solo female artists claiming space outside of the typical machines of pop, country or R&B.” NPR Music noted, “’Heard It In A Past Life’ (is) smart sparkling pop.”
Maggie Rogers grew up in Easton, Maryland. After graduating from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, she released her critically acclaimed debut EP, Now That The Light Is Fading. 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’ television performances include “Saturday Night Live,” “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” “The Late Late Show with James Corden” and “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” Named as the first YouTube Artist On The Rise (AOTR) of 2019, she has also been included in Twitter Music’s #ArtistToFollow, Amazon’s First And Last and Pandora’s Drumbeats programs.
