One of my favorite musicians online is one who has the greatest humility of all. I know him as Ian, but he goes by Good Morning Passenger. His songs literally carry you away in their gradual, soft, shifting way, and I love the way his melodies compliment the rhythms so well. Good Morning Passenger is not a touring band- it’s just Ian and his tunes that he records himself. But make no mistake, these songs are top-notch, and if I had anything to do about it, he’d be on tour right now.
These are the types of songs that just transport you elsewhere. If I could adequately describe how much I love the song “Empty Beds” you wouldn’t believe me. Highly recommended.
