Maggie Rogers

[On Give A Little] Rogers churned out a cathartic pop song about empathy and unity

Toss in a righteous guitar riff, plus a cascade of affirming handclaps, and Rogers emerges with a much-needed sunbeam of a song.” – Pitchfork

Give A Little is a natural and groovy extension of her stunning organic soundscapes.” –V Magazine

Like every song she puts out, [Give A Little] is a surprise that further proves her dexterity and versatility as an artist.” –Paper

It’s a warm, rippling pop song that makes the most of Rogers’ graceful, approachable voice. It already sounds like a hit.” –Stereogum

Today Maggie Rogers debuts the video for her new track Give A Little from her forthcoming debut album on Capitol Records. Filmed in Pacoima, CA the video was co-directed by Rogers and Alan Del Rio Ortiz and features Rachel Matthews, Camila Mendes, Myriah Rose, Firefly, Makayla Menard and Bridget Gamble.

Watch it HERE.

I had so much fun directing this video alongside Alan Del Rio Ortiz,” says Rogers. “I was obsessed with 70s skate culture in high school and really just wanted to have a silly day recreating my favorite scenes from Lords of Dogtown and paying homage to my favorite Farrah Fawcett photos. Those early skate videos feel so raw and powerful, it was important to me to show that that energy could also be female. It was super special to have my two college pals, Rachel Matthews and Camila Mendes, along for the ride. We’ve been friends since the first week of our freshman year, but our schedules have gotten so beautifully and amazingly kind of crazy since we graduated a couple years ago. It was so much fun just to spend the day dancing and giggling with each other like the old days.

Produced by GRAMMY winning producer Greg Kurstin (Adele, Sia, Foo Fighters) and Rogers, the upbeat, effervescent song can be streamed / downloaded HERE. Give A Little follows the acclaimed single Fallingwater, which NPR hailed as a powerful, mesmerizing depiction of Rogers’ transition over the last two years a celebration of the terrifying yet thrilling process of change.

Rogers will kick off a North American headline tour on October 15 at The Fillmore in San Francisco, CA. The run will include shows at The Observatory in Santa Ana, CA (October 18), The Vic Theatre in Chicago, IL (October 30) and Royale in Boston, MA (November 5). Mallrat will support on all dates- see all dates here. The outing marks Rogers’ first headline tour since her summer 2017 outing, which sold out in minutes.
Rogers will also headline two sold out shows at Koko in London (August 29 + 30) following her performances at the U.K.’s Reading and Leeds festival. She will also perform at the Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival in Franklin, TN (September 22 + 23) and co-headline the 2018 All Things Go Fall Classic, one of Washington, DC’s largest signature festivals. She and LPX (Lizzy Plapinger) curated for opening day, October 6.

Maggie Rogers is a producer, songwriter and performer from Easton, Maryland. After her education at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, she released her breakout single Alaska and subsequent critically acclaimed debut EP, Now That The Light Is Fading. Alaska has since charted in Spotify’s Viral 50 in 40 countries, hit #1 in 23 countries and now has over 100 million global combined streams to date. 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.
