Mike Rosenberg, 29, was born in Brighton, England.  He is better known by his stage name Passenger, is an English folk-rock singer-songwriter. Rosenberg learned classical guitar when he was young: ” My parents were really encouraging about music so that sort of started the path. When I was about 14-15, I started to write songs, which were absolutely dreadful. But as I kept going the songs became better and better – it was just so bloody obvious that this was what I wanted to do. I never really applied myself in school and music was the only thing I wanted to spend my time doing…I’m heavily influenced by Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, and Neil Young although I’m nowhere near as good as those guys!”

  3. I do so love his scrunchy voice. He’s already a “seed” on my Pandora station (thank you very much).


  4. Love this guy and his voice and his songs/lyrics. I am so glad to know a little more of his story and that he kept going past what he considered ‘dreadful’. Great music!
