Sick of playing two-men-and-a-dog open mic nights, Passenger’s Mike Rosenberg was about to jack in his music career. Then he swapped Brighton for Australia, started busking and became a sensation.
“It’s pretty mind-blowing, man!” Mike Rosenberg – aka Passenger – still can’t quite believe his sudden surge to online stardom. With more than 8.5 million YouTube views of his single ‘Let Her Go’ in recent months, things are seriously taking off for the UK singer. “After five years of self-funded albums and busking and staying in hostels, it’s ridiculous to suddenly have all of this acclaim.”
All The Little Lights is out now on Netwerk Records. Passenger play Vicar Street on April 29.
