Putting Rock 'n' Roll into Folk.


Hey there, I’m Ludwig Wright. Thank you for joining me here on my website. It’s my little home in the internet, which I use to showcase my music. Have a look around and let me know if I somehow can be of help.


The film “The Blues Brothers” accompanied me all throughout my childhood. It’s about two brothers, who want to put on a huge show to save the orphanage in which they grew up in. For this purpose, they bring their former band back together. The performances, the songs, the energy – I soaked it all up while watching and I knew: I wanted to be a musician.

I was able to win over the producer Micki Meuser (Ina Deter, Silly, Die Ärzte) for the recording of my third album “Turn of Tides or Where the Waves Come From”. The album is a collection of tales with the sea as the setting. The maritime motif meanders like a golden thread through the 13 songs. For me oceans are simply magical and great sources of inspiration. I’m glad I’m now able to express this profound “Sehnsucht” for the sea which I’ve always felt.

Up to now I have independently released two studio-albums and four singles. “HOPE” (2018) is about motivation, optimism and dreams. In that year I also moved to London to solely pursue music and wrote the songs for “LOVE” (2020), which recount break-ups, long distance relationships and reciprocated love. Besides playing street shows and performing at folk clubs around London I toured regularly. Back in Germany I released the singles “Together” (July 2021), “My Life with You” (April 2022), “On the Run” (July 2022) and “This Time” (October 2023) and moved to Berlin to get back on stage and devote myself once again to songwriting. Although I love telling stories in my songs and recording them, my true passion lies in performing and to do what I do best: Putting Rock ’n’ Roll into Folk and making sure the audience has a good time.

My new album “Turn of Tides or Where the Waves Come From” is out now. Order the CD here.
