For a long time, Maggie Rogers introduced herself as a banjo player from the Eastern Shore of Maryland. She says on her Facebook page (excerpted...): "I'm a hiker and an environmentalist. I'm an optimist. I'm loud.....I got a cat named Cat Stevens. I fell in love. I moved to New York, to France, and back..... I'm a songwriter, producer, and performer from Brooklyn. I'm an optimist. I'm a feminist. .... I feel a lot, maybe too much, but in a song, it always seems to be just enough. The thing about songs is that no matter how far away I go, or how long I stay away, they always seem to keep coming. And as wild and unpredictable as they are, I've learned to trust them. I write to feel and sing 'til I feel a new way....I want to make music forever. I want to tell the truth. I want to know how it feels to make the best art I possibly can."
