Patchwork – Out now

Hello everyone , I’m extremely excited to say that my 12th studio album “patchwork” is out today and you can listen to it now from here 🤗🤗🤗 – passenger.lnk.to/Patchwork i’m really proud of this one – I wrote almost all of it during lockdown (other than the Lewis Capaldi cover …. I really wish that was my song 😉) […]

UK & Europe Live Shows Rescheduled

June 19, 2020

Hello everyone ,

Hope the day is treating you well so far ☺️

I have some unfortunate but probably not very surprising news ….

Sadly , due to the uncertainty surrounding the corona virus we are having to postpone our Uk , European and North American tour dates until next year .

Its been really difficult to navigate this and we’ve waited as long as possible before making the switch . it breaks my heart to have to move these shows but I think it’s the only sensible thing we can do at this point .
the bottom line is and always will be people’s safety and comfort at my gigs and we just can’t guarantee either at this time 😔

I’m so sorry for everybody that has a ticket and especially to those of you that have made travel / accommodation plans …. It sucks . Your ticket will of course be valid for the rescheduled show and if for some reason you can’t make the new date then refunds will be available 😢😢

So here is a basic run down of what’s going on ….

AUSTRALIA / NEW ZEALAND – we are keeping the dates in January next year as planned – you guys will just be at the start of the tour instead of the end of it so all good there 👍

UK and IRELAND – we are moving the dates from august / September of this year to February ‘21 (as you can see from the poster below.)
Two things to mention are that we’ve added a Nottingham show at ROCK CITY and also one in Bristol at the O2 Academy Bristol for those of you in the south west .
Other than that all cities and venues remain the same .

EUROPE – we will now be coming to see you all in march 2021 instead of this coming September – again please see poster below for details . The only venue change is Prague where we will be playing Roxy Prague as opposed to Lucerna Velky sal .
Other than that all cities and venues remain the same .

NORTH AMERICA – we are working on the final details but it is looking very likely that the dates will be moved from October of this year to April of next . We will get specific details to you as soon as we have them . Thank you so much for your patience ☺️

I’m so sorry that it has come to this but who knows , perhaps as a result this will be the best tour ever …. I know I’m certainly going to appreciate it in a completely new way.

Thank you so much for all of your support and understanding .

Summer Rain

June 7, 2020

Hello everyone ,

Its been a while !! I really hope you’re all doing ok …. What a difficult few weeks / months 😔

Sorry I’ve been fairly quiet on here – truth is I’ve not really been on my computer or phone for a little while as I felt like I really needed some time away from the news / world …. I’ve been really enjoying a slower pace of life – spending a lot of time in the garden with my idiotic cats and my new rescue chickens 🐣🐣🐣

We’ve also been working on something really exciting which I’ll be able to share with you all soon so watch this space !!!!

In the meantime though , here is a new song called “summer rain” . It was a tough one to write . A really personal one . I hope it strikes a chord with some you …

Thank you all for watching and listening !

Loads of love .

Mike xx

Ps I will get back on the live streaming soon I promise xx

London In The Spring (Official Lyric Video)

May 20, 2020

Loads of love .

Queenstown

May 17, 2020

Hello everyone ☺️

Hope you’re all ok ?!

There is no live stream this week as its my birthday today so I’m having a little night off 😇

However , I did want to share a song that I wrote a few days ago ….

Isolation has been tough for so many reasons , but its had some weird upsides …. I think this is the first time I’ve actually allowed myself the time and space to stop and reflect on everything that has happened over the last few years … mainly all of the amazing travelling and touring that I’ve been lucky enough to do . I think lockdown has made me start to understand what an unbelievable privilege it has been .

One of my favourite adventures was a road trip around New Zealand’s South Island a few years ago … it was one of the most magical times of my life . This song I think encapsulates that feeling of travel and freedom – something that we are all probably missing greatly at the moment .

Its called “Queenstown” which was one of my favourite spots .

I really hope you enjoy it , and If you do and want to be nice to me on my birthday (😳😳😇) then please share it around as much as you can haha .

Love to you all .

Isolation Live Stream #8

May 12, 2020

Hey everyone !

Massive thank you to everyone who tuned in to the live stream on Sunday . It was such a fun one !! charlie is still very proud of himself 🙄🙄🙄 here it is again if you missed it !

Having done eight of these live streams now I’ve decided to take a little break from it for a few weeks . They’ve been so much fun and an amazing point of connection for me and hopefully you guys too . But they’re also a surprising amount of work and haven’t come without their challenges haha .

I will be sure to let you all know when I’ll be starting them up again and in the meantime all of the sessions are available to watch again on my youtube channel if you so wish ☺️

Please keep on being sensible and safe and happy and I will see you all again soon .

Love to all of you .

Year on Year, Day by Day

May 10, 2020

Hello everyone !

Hope you’ve all had a decent week and that you’re all feeling ok .

Here is yet another new song 😳 its called “year on year , day by day” and its just a bunch of jumbled up thoughts about life and love and death ….. just all of the little stuff then really haha …. I really love it , I think it needs a bit more work but I wanted to share it with you all in its raw form ….

Really hope you like it and as ever I really appreciate you all sharing it with your friends and family if you can !

I’ll be live at the slightly later time of 7:30pm (uk) tonight on my YouTube channel to play a bunch of cover songs – you guys voted for some absolute beauties 🤗 this will be the last live stream for a little while so it would be great to get as many of you tuning in as possible !

Patchwork

May 3, 2020

Hello everyone !

Hope you’re all hanging in there …

Another week in lockdown and another new song for you 🤗 This one’s called “patchwork” and I only finished writing it on Friday …..

I have to say it feels so nice to be able to share songs so soon after they’ve been written . Usually it takes months from when they’re written to when they’re released and there is definitely a freshness and a power to them when they’re so new ….

As always please share it around if you dig it !!

I will be live on my youtube channel at 7pm uk time tonight where I will be – internet permitting – attempting to play (most of 😇) “wicked mans rest” …. Which for those of you who don’t know was the first ever passenger album and was released back in 1758 ….. its gonna be interesting 😳😳

Here’s the link

See ya there xxx
