WILMINGTON — On Tuesday, one of the music industry’s latest pop sensations, Maggie Rogers, performed for the first time at Live Oak Bank Pavilion at Riverfront Park.

It was a “high energy show,” according to MoonFrog Media photographer Tom Dorgan, who was there to capture shots of the concert for Port City Daily.

The 29-year-old American singer-songwriter has gained steam in the last decade, releasing two independent albums, 2012’s “The Echo” and 2014’s “Blood Ballet.” She followed up with two studio releases, including 2019’s “Heard in a Past Life” — the same year she scored a Grammy nomination as Best New Artist — and 2022’s “Surrender.” The latter was a part of her thesis for the Harvard Divinity School graduate program. Self-described as spiritual, Rogers was “studying the spirituality of public gatherings and the ethics of power in pop culture.”

The release charted 12th in the United States, with two songs “That’s Where I Am” and “Want Want” hitting the number-one and -three spots on AAA radio stations in the states.

Rogers has collaborated with artists like Phoebe Bridgers and Leon Bridges, and has performed with Haim and Kacey Musgraves.

Opening for her show in Wilmington — which Dorgan said brought an “energetic fan base” — was 17-year-old San Diego rapper and singer Jelani Aryeh.
