White Lion/Freak Of Nature frontman Mike Tramp has announced his return to the U.S. set for the spring of 2014 – His 2013 summer tour of the states was met with rave reviews from both fans and promoters alike – He will be performing WHITE LION classics as well and new material off of his brand new record “Cobblestone Street”
The tour will kick-off on March 19th in Hollywood CA. at the legendary Whisky A Go Go.
Mike Tramp’s “Cobblestone Street” is a departure from the sound that most people would expect from a singer, that has been around since White Lion crashed on to the Hard Rock scene in the 80’s. Rock fans have gotten to know Mike Tramp as a legit rock singer and frontman that looked like he was born to be just that. Therefore many might find it surprising that Tramp’s roots and musical upbringing, lie deeply buried in folk music.
Heavily influenced by fellow Danish artists with acoustic guitars and international stars like Bob Dylan, Neil Young and Bruce Springsteen, Tramp says that all of his songs through 35 years on the music stage, have always come from sitting with the old faithful acoustic guitar playing and singing. That White Lion songs like “When the Children Cry”, “Broken Heart” and “Wait”, and Freak Of Nature’s “Rescue Me” later have ended up as epic rock classics is just a question of arranging them in that way with the band in the rehearsal room, but all songs have always been fit to play around the campfire or in the back of a shady bar.
“This has been is the most rewarding and fulfilling tour I have ever done”, says Mike “and that coincides with an album that represents all of that, and is just real completion to what I have worked so hard to accomplish.”
