Wash your tears away. Dreams, fast asleep.


When Cheryl B. Engelhardt was scheduled to attend the GRAMMYS, she decided to take a train from NY to LA to get there rather than fly.

When her dearest friend and collaborator passed away the same day the GRAMMYs got postponed, she decided not to cancel her trip, scheduled to depart two weeks later. Instead, Engelhardt embarked on what would become a transformative journey while becoming the first person to make a record ON a cross-American train trip. Cheryl claims she "eat pray loved her way" through the 216 hours (nine days - five outbound and four inbound) in a “roomette”, seeing the entire country and processing big emotions.

The trip resulted in a brand new collection of nine ambient/New Age songs. From the train, Engelhardt sent files to collaborators to contribute their talents, including GRAMMY-winning artist Lili Haydn, GRAMMY-nominees Sangeeta Kaur and Danaë Xanthe Vlasse, world-renowned flutist Sherry Finzer, and the Dallas String Quartet.

Composed and produced entirely on the train trip, “The Passenger” album was mixed by Engelhardt upon her return and then mastered by Kim Rosen, making it one of the first ambient records composed, mixed, and mastered entirely by women. The entire project, from idea conception to masters received, took under three months.
