Biography
Mick Strode started playing acoustic guitar in folk / blues clubs where he met and played with Robert Plant and Perry Foster. Subsequently he joined Robert Plant and The Band of Joy on electric guitar.

After leaving Art College, Mick moved to London. He played with Ian Hunter (later of Mott the Hoople) in the New Yardbirds before joining Forever More where he played under the name of Mick Travis.

Forever More gigged widely in Britain and Europe and recorded two albums on the RCA label. At this time Mick also did session work, including playing on Ringo Starr’s first solo single, alongside George Harrison.

After a couple of years, Forever More disbanded. Two members went on to form The Average White Band with a horn section known as the Dundee Horns who had also played on Forever More's first album. Meanwhile, Mick formed a new band called Glencoe, which included Norman Watt–Roy on bass who was later to become a member of Ian Dury’s Blockheads and Wilko Johnson’s band.

Following a long break away from making music, Mick took up the guitar, song–writing and gigging again.

His album Rollin’ down the road received an excellent review in Blueprint magazine. One of the tracks from this album was featured on Blueprint magazine’s compilation album “Best of British Blues 1999”.

Currently he lives in France with his wife, Sonja, where he has written and recorded songs for his recent albums:
Days I left behind, completed in 2011, and No longer me, completed in 2012.
