The 2016 year-end lists have spoken: Maggie Rogers is poised to become a star. Outlets such as W Magazine, National Public Radio and Spotify included her folk-gone-electro tune “Alaska” in their music roundups. Rogers’ springboard to stardom began with a video taken from an audio-production class during her senior year at New York University’s Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music. The video shows superstar producer Pharrell Williams consulting with the students on their final projects. He is nearly moved to tears by Rogers’ work. The video went viral, and the buzz began. She’s currently working on her debut album, due out sometime this year. Catch Rogers on Monday, January 23, at the Higher Ground Ballroom in South Burlington. Scott James opens.
