Born Mike Rosenberg, but familiar to millions as Passenger, this English-born singer/songwriter infuses his infectious indie pop with a bewitching folk flavor. His most successful single, “Let Her Go,” won over the world and topped the charts all across mainland Europe. In 2014, the song was nominated for the Brit Award for British Single of the Year.
Attracting a wide range of listeners with their eclectic rock sound, this genre-bending New Orleans-based septet fills the stage with dynamic percussion, punchy horns and a gritty Southern roots vibe.
