Music: Passenger

Michael David Rosenberg a.k.a. Passenger, is an English folk singer-songwriter. He comes all the way from Brighton and Hove, England and was previously the main vocalist and songwriter of the band Passenger. When the band parted in 2009 he ended up keeping the bands name for his solo work. You have probably heard his biggest single "Let Her Go" as it has topped charts in several countries and was nominated for a 2014 Brit Award.

Passenger has released four albums since 2009 and is preparing to release his fifth album this June. His albums include Wide Eyes Blind Love, Divers & Submarines, Flight of the Crow and All the Little Lights and the album being released this year is titled Whispers.

His voice is incredible, the perfect amount of raspy and I love the fact that you get hints of his accent here and there. The track I picked is titled "Things that Stop You Dreaming" it has violins at the beginning which I love. I've been going through a rough time lately and I appreciate that this song tells you to be who you are and to not let anything stand in the way of your dreams. I think this song can speak to a lot of different people and I really appreciate the message.

Well if you can’t get what you love / You learn to love the things you’ve got / If you can’t be what you want / You learn to be the things you’re not / If you can’t get what you need / You learn to need the things that stop you dreaming
