Maybe you remember the viral video that turned Maggie Rogers from a college music student into an overnight success – Pharrell Williams became her first superstar fan when Maggie’s song “Alaska” was played for him in an NYU master class. Today, she's releasing a new project, called Notes from the Archive: Recordings 2011-2016, a collection of songs written before her breakthrough success. She joins host Raina Douris today to talk about her early days of songwriting, and we'll hear a couple tracks from the new record. Coming up, on the next World Cafe.
