Biography

Passenger began in the UK as a five-piece band with the big money label behind it in the early 2000s. They released a critically acclaimed debut album (Wicked Man’s Rest) but when the members of that band chose to go their separate ways in 2007, Rosenberg opted to stick with the Passenger moniker and trust in his music, his voice and his guitar to take him where it would. He took to the ... Read more in Amazon's Passenger Store

Editorial Reviews

Mike Rosenberg, aka Passenger, presents Whispers, the follow up to 2012 s All The Little Lights, which featured the international hit single and 3x Platinum "Let Her Go."

Recorded in Sydney and co-produced by Chris Vallejo, Whispers is comprised of 11 tracks that tell tales some real, some imagined of love, death, growing up and getting old. A master of story telling, Passenger yet again strikes the perfect balance between the heartbreaking and the humorous, all wrapped in beautiful instrumentation, creating a sumptuous, symphonic sound.

"This is easily the most "up" album I ve ever made," explains Passenger. "It s quite cinematic. There are lots of big stories and big ideas. There are also some somber moments about loneliness and death but, hey, it wouldn t be a Passenger album without those. Mostly though, it s a really positive album."

Lead single "Scare Away The Dark," which is already a fan favorite at live shows, presents listeners with a different side of Passenger than the one they ve come to know from international smash single "Let Her Go." It s a riotous rant about technology taking over our lives, calling on listeners to seize the moment and embrace life. Though he didn t realize it at the time, title track "Whispers" captures the chaos in Passenger s head as "Let Her Go" began to snowball. "Heart s On Fire" is the album s grandest love song, starting sparse on finger picked guitar and building into a dramatic, passionate, strings-soaked plea to the person you can t get out of your head.

5.0 out of 5 stars Goodness June 10, 2014
By Mike
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
'Let Her Go' grew on me like a wildfire and like most of his fans it's the reason I got into Passenger. I remember hearing it in 2012 and bought the album later that day. 'All The Little Lights' blew me away and one thing is for sure, the acoustic tracks made it worth the extra $2 for the deluxe version. Same story here, the deluxe is worth a couple extra dollars.

Passenger is a breath of fresh air in a world where pop rules. Good George Dubbya this is the best album of 2014 (so far.) Top marks lyrically, musically and vocally, Mike. This is destined be classic folk 30 years in the future like Simon and Garfunkel are now.

For the fuss buckets, this is one of those cardboard sleeve CD cases but with an added surprise (why spoil it?) and more importantly, lyrics! Alright, I'm off to listen to it again.

Format:MP3 Music
WHISPERS is the fifth and most recent album by indie-inflected folksinger/songwriter Michael David Rosenberg, who sings solo under the name of the group he founded eleven years ago, "Passenger." How I came to know about this highly accomplished and entertaining album, I don't know; but my life is better for it.

When performance and marketing categories are invoked to explain this gentle-voiced thirty-year-old's styles of music, it's usually in the "Indie" or "Folk" categories, but WHISPERS seems almost a world-music album of English-speaking countries just in its production. It was recorded in Sydney (where Rosenberg has returned to kick off his Australian tour), licensed in the USA, released by a Canadian company. Some post-production took place at Abbey Road. Rosenberg is the Scottish son of a Scottish mum and a Jewish-American dad. WHISPERS is a virtual amalgam of U.K. and American styles of successful (but not sellout) folk and folk-rock musicians from the early seventies to the present. Listen carefully and one can hear echoes of "string band," Bob Dylan (by way of Simon & Garfunkel), perhaps some Melissa Etheridge, definitely some Jackson Browne. The artists this album most reminds me of, though, are Bob Seger and pre-conversion Cat Stevens. Seger for the plaintive confessional quality in songs such as "Riding to New York" and "Scare Away the Dark"; Stevens in "Bullets," a gently convincing allegory of a too-violent society, and "Thunder," an anthem of personal life-quest using water metaphors ("I go running in circles, like baby turtles"). Passenger's wide but not deep voice, too well styled to be called "thin," is also reminiscent of Cat Stevens.

5.0 out of 5 stars And he does it again.... June 11, 2014
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Although I had pre-ordered this album, I initially had serious doubts as to whether it would stand up to the high bar he set with his last album or whether his sound would change too much after becoming famous worldwide. But after listening to this album all the way through five times in the two days I've had it, these fears have been firmly put to rest. It is a very rare occurrence that an artist manages to follow their breakout album with one of equal or greater quality but Mike really topped himself here.

In addition to the music, the Album artwork and booklet are designed masterfully. You aren't just getting plastic and a disc.

If you like real, meaningful music buy this album!

5.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievably Incredible June 14, 2014
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Wow. When I heard the first song of this album, I was amazed. My amazement continued until the last second of the last song. This album is truly a masterpiece of Passenger. I have always been a fan of Passenger, although listening to these songs has made me obsessed.
If you are contemplating buying this album, please take my advice:
You will NOT REGRET pirchasing this album and all of it's content. It will give you an idea of what excellent music sounds like.

5.0 out of 5 stars Music that makes you feel something....Love it! June 10, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent CD....beautiful, meaningful music by a true artist. Every time I listen to Passenger sing, the feeling I get is difficult to describe. The music is so real and I find a lot of meaning in his songs. Anyone who loves Passenger will love this CD. He stays true to his style of music and if you liked All the Little Lights, I have no doubt you will love this CD. There isn't a single song that I don't like. I especially love Whispers, Riding to New York, and Scare Away the Dark. The deluxe version comes with extra tracks, acoustic versions of some of the songs. Well worth the few extra dollars...and the case it comes in is very unique. I've been eagerly awaiting the release of this CD for quite awhile, and I was not disappointed on the first listen. Wonderful CD! I can't wait to see Mike perform on his Whispers tour this August!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful! June 16, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I couldn't wait for Passenger's latest album to come out, having previously purchased 3 of them. He doesn't disappoint. The lyrics and melodies are so beautiful. His songs brings back memories of parts of our lives, the loves and the losses, and everything in between. Especially poignant is "Riding to New York", you picture the character in your mind and know how he feels. Thank you, Mike. See you in August on tour.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightfully packaged! June 23, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The packaging was superb!
Rosenberg can certainly tell a story though music and verse.
This album's story struck a sad place in the soul but it also spoke of honesty and strength to do what is needed.
Love his work.
