Emerging indie-pop, singer/songwriter Maggie Rogers will be performing at The Amp with special guest Jacob Banks on Friday, October 11, 2019.
After graduating from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, Rogers 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”.
Currently, Rogers is touring in support of her Capitol Records debut album, “Heard It In A Past Life”, which released on January 18, 2019. The album debuted at #2 on the Billboard Top 200 and #1 on the Top Album Sales chart. Her new single, “Light On”, is out now. Written by Rogers, the song was produced by Greg Kurstin + Kid Harpoon + Rogers and premiered as Zane Lowe’s World Record on Apple Music’s Beats 1. “Heard It In A Past Life” includes the song that introduced Rogers to the world, “Alaska”, which has accrued over 100 million global combined streams to date. The album also contains the follow-up singles Fallingwater”, praised by NPR as “a celebration of the terrifying yet thrilling process of change” and “Give A Little”, which Pitchfork hailed as “cathartic pop song about empathy and unity”.
Born in Nigeria and based in England, singer/songwriter Jacob Banks creates soul music that’s uncompromisingly honest but thrillingly cinematic. A self-taught musician who began singing, playing guitar, and writing songs at the age of 20, Banks got his start at open mic nights around Birmingham in 2011 and quickly won major attention for his commanding vocal presence and daringly intimate songwriting. In early 2013, he released his powerful debut EP “The Monologue”, earning feverish acclaim that soon saw him supporting such artists as Emeli Sandé and Alicia Keys on tour.
