British singer/songwriter Mike Rosenberg, continues exploring the broader sonic palette he developed on 2012's All the Little Lights with his sixth studio album, 2014's Whispers. Rosenberg once again teamed up with producer Chris Vallejo. Together, they deliver a batch of evocative acoustic folk and indie pop songs that are often expanded with orchestral flourishes. That said, Rosenberg's main instrument of choice here is still the acoustic guitar, and all the songs on Whispers retain the Brighton-based artist's core intimacy....Influenced by both traditional British folk and more modern singer/songwriters....Rosenberg has a knack for intimate revelations that still read as universal....Ultimately, with Whispers, Rosenberg has crafted an album of sweet, hummable anthems for tender-hearted troubadours everywhere.

Passenger's music has moved beyond the usual comparison to artists like Van Morrison that you read in reviews. He is his own voice now, both in the song writing and in his distinctive vocal sound. AllMusic reviewer Matt Collar describes Passenger's voice: "vocally, he has a distinctively poignant chirp of a voice that sounds something akin to an elf who stayed up all night smoking, drinking, and sharing stories with friends. Which isn't to say he sounds wizened, just world-weary and steeped in a kind of twee ennui." Acoustic guitar features prominently in his recordings and is expertly layered with a variety of orchestra instrumental sounds by producer Chris Vallejo. Highlight tracks include Heart's on Fire, 27, Coins in a Fountain and the title track Whispers.
