Maggie Rogers

4.9/5

Margaret Debay Rogers(born April 25, 1994) is a Grammy Award-nominated American musician, singer-songwriter, and producer from Easton, Maryland. Her big break came when her song "Alaska" was played to Pharrell Williams during a masterclass at New York University's Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music.

Rogers grew up along the banks of the Miles River in Easton, Maryland. Her father is a now-retired Ford dealer and her mother, a former nurse, is now an end-of-life doula. She began playing harp at age seven, and loved the music of Gustav Holst and Antonio Vivaldi. Her mother would play neo-soul artists such as Erykah Badu and Lauryn Hill. By the time she was in middle school, Rogers had added piano and guitar to her repertoire and began songwriting in eighth grade. For high school she attended the prestigious St. Andrew's boarding school in Delaware as well as The Gunston School in Maryland. At school, she played harp in the orchestra, sang in the choir, joined a jazz band, learned banjo and became interested in folk music, and taught herself how to program. She also spent many summers during her formative years at a rural camp in Maine.
