After Freak of nature split up Mike went on as a solo artist. He released
5 albums so far called: "Capricorn" -
With classic American Hard-Rock, the cult-classic debut 'Fight To Survive'
and the sufficient major label support, WHITE LION reached platinum-plus
status with their album 'Pride'. On the heels of four major singles, the
biggest being 'When The Children Cry', WHITE LION established their status
even further with the follow-up albums 'Big Game' and 'Mane Attraction'
and were able to create a die-hard following all over the globe.
Once again, Tramp would not lose his faith but jumped head-first into the new chapter of his career. Starting in the studio of his friend David Coverdale he started to work on his first solo-album 'Capricorn' which was released in 1998 and showed Tramp from a drastically different, more stripped-down and intimate side. The lyrics got even more personal and, even though he toured stateside with Lynyrd Skynyrd, there was no real effort made from the label to push the album.
It wasn't until 2001 that things took a different turn. After touring for 60 shows in the US under his own flag in the summer, he started recordings on his second solo-album 'Recovering The Wasted Years' which was released by European indie 'ulfTone music' in February 2002. Tramp started touring Europe like there was no tomorrow and pleased each and every one that came to the shows. The album and tour got amazing reviews and Mike had finally showed everyone that he was still a major force to be reckoned with in the rock world.
The story continues: in the spring of 2003 Tramp had finished his third
solo effort 'More To Life Than This', which was released in Europe on
March 17th, 2003.
Following the release, Mike once again did not stand still. He toured relentlessly in support of the album, first in Asia, then in Europe all summer with ZZ Top, then onwards to his own headline-tour, which ended in Bradford, England in October of 2003.
Mike then commenced to mix his first-ever live-album ("Rock'n'Roll Alive") which has already been released in certain territories and is fixing to be released in others and is now starting to write songs for new albums; right now, nothing has been scheduled in terms of recordings but there will be surprising turns in terms of live performances in the near future.
