I think that those who still remember Mike Tramp as the frontman of White Lion or Freak Of Nature will have to sit down for a moment when hearing this here ‘Cobblestone Street’. Because on this record Mike Tramp goes back to his roots and those roots are to be found in folkrock, think Steve Earle, Bruce Springsteen, Neil Young and Americana in general. In fact, the difference with former bands is not so big, it’s just stripped of all loud guitars, thundering drums and scream-your-heart-out singing.
Last year, Tramp was on the road through Europe with just his acoustic guitar and that’s how this record sounds. Easy-to-digest songs with a story and the ever beautiful voice of Mike Tramp. The man respected body, health and voice throughout the years and this can be heard, his legendary voice still stands and then some. The man got older and so did we so maybe this collection of songs will find a way to the heart of long-standing fans. I for one found pleasure in it. And maybe so will you.
