MP3: Passenger – “The Sound Of Silence” [Simon & Garfunkel Cover]


Mike Rosenberg is a true troubadour (geez, that’s hard to say). Under his Passenger moniker, the U.K songwriter has wandered across all corners of Australia; busking on the streets, collaborating with the locals and earning himself a legion of fans in every city, town and municipality.

Returning from his travels to his current-home of Sydney, last month, he played to an adoring audience at The Vanguard (26/11/10). Among his setlist was this incredible cover of “The Sound Of Silence”originally performed by another pair of true troubadours (sheesh), Simon & Garfunkel.

Bridging from into echoing acoustics into impassioned acapella, this live recording represents every reason your need to catch Passenger live and in the flesh. Luckily, he’ll be touring nationally with Old Man River in February/March 2011 (dates below), so you can do just that.
