Annie Fung

Acclaimed US producer-songwriter-performer Maggie Rogers has announced her first ever New Zealand show on her Heard It In A Past Life world tour, playing Auckland’s The Powerstation on Saturday 1 June.

Presenting thoughtful indie-pop, Rogers’ music endeavours to bring the human back into popular music. Using organic percussion and ethereal timbres alongside lyrics of activism and heartache, Rogers’ approach is truly unique - translating to a glistening live show.

A confident performance from the young artist with a fervent online following proves that famous fan Pharrell Williams was right to heap praise on her – The Guardian
