Passenger, hailing from Brighton, features 21 year old songwriter Mike Rosenberg. Previously posted here under the moniker MRB, these fellas are prepping their ’07 debut under the guidance of IE Music Management who just scored another #1 debut with main superstar client Robbie Williams (IE also reps Astralwerks artist Sia). Albeit there are no major label venture plans in the UK or U.S. at the moment, there’s been a strong reaction from several Universal, Warner and Sony-BMG affiliates on both sides of the pond. Passenger’s new folk pop is not unlike Ben Harper, Cat Stevens, Dave Matthews, David Gray, Damien Rice, Joseph Arthur, Simon & Garfunkel and Dido. A finished indie full length includes the songs “Wicked Man’s Rest” and “Things You’ve Never Done”. Shows in London on 11/16 and 11/28.
