Mike Rosenberg and Andrew Philips formed Passenger in 2003. Mike Rosenberg is the lead singer/songwriter of the British folk-rock band. Passenger's melodic, entrancing music invokes the beauty of classic singer-songwriters such as Van Morrison and Neil Young. The simple beauty of the five-piece band's evocative tunes springs from Mike Rosenberg's haunting and beautiful voice, backed by dexterous guitar riffs and rich, poetic lyrics. Hailing from the United Kingdom, Passenger has been very prolific, releasing eight albums of varying length between 2007 and 2010.
