Following the recent single release, Mike Tramp will also release a new Best Of Album on May 21 with the same title as the single 'Everything Is Alright''

Following in the footsteps of artists like Bob Dylan, The Beatles and Tom Petty Mike deeply cares about the message of his songs and allowing his true voice to be heard.

As an acoustic folk rock troubadour Mike is unafraid to tackle the difficult subjects in life including loss, betrayal, death, family difficulties and responsibilities and relationship problems.

Recognising the importance of the human condition and, that he has, himself, learned more through suffering that joy, Mike creates albums and songs that explore human emotions and life situations.
He seeks to make sense of man’s existence with old fashioned values refusing to be seduced or suffocated by superficial considerations.

With the recent troubles caused by the Pandemic which has affected so many on a global scale, causing humans to look both at the world and at themselves with a critical eye and to appreciate the real things that matter.
No time more like the present has been more suited to appreciate Mike’s work which has always questioned the world and personal existence and sought to make the world a better place.


This said, the new, 10 song Best Of album 'Everything Is Alright' is an emotional rollercoaster of great rock songs with fantastic lyrics.

Mike Tramp has released his brand new single "Everything Is Alright", an honest song, written directly from the heart. He also announced he will take part in the competition to find the Danish entry for the Eurovision Song Contest.


"Everything Is Alright" will battle seven other songs in Denmark's national final "Dansk Melodi Grand Prix" on March 6, with the winner going forward to represent Denmark in the Eurovision finals, due to be held in Rotterdam this May

Having won the Danish song contest in 1978 with MABEL and represented Denmark in the Eurovision Song Contest later that same year, Mike will return just over four decades later on the same stage and in the context that kick-started his career with his message for Denmark and all countries of Europe in these dark times. 

After all the years and a lifetime of experience, it feels right to be back.

"In 2021, I can be 100% true to myself and not have to put on any mask - I am who I am," Mike says. "All eight songs are there to win, but the moment you deliver and sing a song without compromising on yourself, only in that moment can you leave the stage as a winner — no matter what the jury thinks."


Songs and lyrics continue to pour out of Mike under lockdown and the release of this brand new previously unreleased track continues the tradition of two decades of heartfelt and personal work which also reaches out and connects on a human level with others. 

These troubled times have caused everyone to look both at the world and inwards to assess where we have come to and who we are.


"As far back as I remember, my focus have always been to be the best me, and not a bad copy of someone else," Mike says. "With each song I write, each album I record and the many shows I play. I come closer and closer to that goal, and today I feel I can honestly say, I have arrived. 'Everything Is Alright' confirms that in every way."

Mike Tramp Best Of Album Trampthology, 20 songs, including 4 new

Released: Dec. 18, 2020

This is what Mike Tramp had to say about it:

Half way through 2020, when it became obvious that it would be a horrible year none of us would ever forget, and many would not make it through.


I had to get myself out of the dark celler and into the light, sink my teeth into what it is I am. Go through my musical scrapbook and find faith and hope in all the memories each song brings me.


It kicked started a whole lot and I opened up my studio again and started writing. Now 25 years after I wrote my first song for my first solo album Capricorn.

I have chosen 16 of the most important songs from my 11 solo albums, but also 4 brand new tracks written specially for this double album, presented in a bad ass package.


Enjoy, Tramp.

MIKE TRAMP HISTORY

Mike Tramp (born: Michael Trempenau January 14, 1961) grew up in Vesterbro - Denmark. 

Still in his youth Mike Tramp loved to play soccer and discovered Hardrock.
Mike Tramp joined the band Mabel with whom he later represented Denmark in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1978 with the song Boom Boom. 

Mabel continued in Spain where the band was very popular as a rockband. They even played as the support act for Van Halen. 
Mike Tramp packed his bags and went to New York in 1983 With mabel but the band slowly fell apart.
Vocalist Mike Tramp met guitar player Vito Bratta (ex-Dreamer) and they decided to form a band. They recruited drummer Nicki Capozzi and bassist Felix Robinson (formerly of Angel) and named their band White Lion.

White Lion was signed by Elektra Records in 1984 and records their debut album Fight to Survive. However, Elektra was unhappy with the final recording, and after refusing to release the album they terminated the contract. 


Soon after that there is some bad news. Both Capozzi and Robinson decide to leave White Lion .
But sometimes bad news is in fact good news because soon the new band members are being presented: Nicki Capozzi was replaced by former Anthrax drummer Greg D Angelo, and Felix Robinson was replaced by bassist Dave Spitz (brother of Anthrax guitarist Dan Spitz). 
Within a month of joining, however there again is news about the band members, Dave Spitz left to play bass with Black Sabbath and was replaced by James Lomenzo.
The steady band lineup has finally be found. White Lion is born.

White Lion records Fight to Survive all over with the new band members . After that the news came that the band is picked up by RCA for a release in Japan in 1984. The small US independent label Grand Slamm records finally releases Fight To Survive in the US on November 9, 1985. White Lion released one single from this album: Broken Heart.

Early in 1987 there is even better news.
White Lion signs with Atlantic Records (which ironically is a sister label to Elektra) which on June 21, 1987, releases their breakthrough album Pride .

All songs on this album were written by Mike Tramp and Vito Bratta .

The first single, Wait was released on June 1, 1987, but did not hit the charts for nearly seven months. 

The Pride tour started in July 1987 as White Lion opened for Ace Frehley's 80s band Frehley's Comet. The next year and a half was filled with being constantly on tour, White Lion was opening for bands like Aerosmith, Ozzy Osbourne, Stryper, KISS and in January 1988 White Lion hits the opening slot for AC/DC on their Blow Up Your Video American tour. While being on tour with AC/DC, the Pride album and Wait single finally hits the charts, due in no small part to MTV airing the "Wait" music video in regular rotation - nearly seven months after the single's release. "Wait" hits #8 on the singles chart, while Pride hits #11 on the album charts. Pride would remain on the top 200 Billboard album charts for a full year.


In August 1988, White Lion releases the second hit single from the album entitled Tell Me, which hits at #58. Around the time this single was released, White Lion plays at the Ritz club in New York City. Like Guns N' Roses , Great White and a few others before them, the White Lion show at the Ritz was filmed and later aired on MTV. 

The Pride album third single, a gentle acoustic ballad titled When the Children Cry , becomes the biggest of all White Lion hits at #3. with heavy MTV rotation, making Pride one of about 20 hard rock albums to ever have multiple top 10 hits and to this day the most successful White Lion album.

The success of When the Children Cry would eventually push sales of Pride over the two million mark. In addition, guitarist Vito Bratta was recognized for his talents as a guitar player by racking up Best New Guitarist awards with both Guitar World magazine and Guitar For The Practicing Musician magazine and Mike Tramp was recognized in having one of the most unique voices in hardrock.
