British acoustic-pop singer Mike Rosenberg, better known as Passenger, has been on the music scene for ten years, but finally this week he is set to achieve his first UK top 40 hit. You may remember the band Passenger, fronted by Mike, who had minor success with catchy singles Walk You Home and Do What You Like. They split in 2009 when the band members got fed up of Mike being “a bit of a tit.” As a solo artist, semi-tit Mike kept the name Passenger and gigged relentlessly around the world. His single Let Her Go has been No. 1 in 11 countries. It’s a sweet, simple song, nothing revolutionary, but it certainly could be a UK hit.
