Today, ex-White Lion and Freak Of Nature singer MIKE TRAMP releases his new solos album, "Second Time Around". With a career in his own name worthful of his rich past, Tramp is living one of the most creative moments of his life.
"I often listen to my many previous solo albums and say to myself I should have sung it this way or changed the melody that way. At the same time, I accept that it was the best I could do at that moment! I worked with what I had and knew.", Tramp comments. "This life doesn’t often give you a Second Time Around, but if it does - consider yourself lucky and grab it. The songs on “Second Time Around” have been with me for a long, long time. I remember writing the first song “When She Cries”, October 2, 2005 the day after my daughter Isabel had been born. It was like a whole new door opened and all these songs came out over the next few months along with a whole other bunch of songs, which have all ended up on different albums. You can say it was the most creative time in my 44 years in the rock’n’roll uniform".
