Last year Pharrell Williams, the famed producer, and singer, who has worked with everyone from Brittany Spears to Daft Punk, sat in on a songwriter masterclass at NYU. One student, Maggie Rogers, played her song for Pharrell, who was literally moved to tears by the track. The video of the interaction quickly went viral, earning Maggie a recording contract. She released her first EP, Now that the Light is Fading this year.
Recently she teamed up with The North Face to release her new track "Split Stones". The video features some of The North Face's most famous athletes, including Emily Harrington, Alex Honnold, and Jimmy Chin. Music and the outdoors are bound together and you can feel Maggie's inspiration and connection in her music.
