Maggie Rogers

Maggie Rogers, a NYU student, has just soared to the top of her class. Her infectious single "Alaska" debuted during a Master Class with Pharrell and a booming artist was born. "I've never heard anyone like you before, and I've heard anything that sounds like that," Pharrell said, after he had "absolutely no notes" for the piece. "That's a drug for me."

She crafts her songs from personal experiences - a spiritual journey abroad or from a hike gathering a sound bank of birds and noises for rhythm. The song mixes her folk, banjo roots and pairs perfectly with an EDM sound and I can't get enough of it.

Take a listen below and be prepared to be floored just like Pharrell.
