My new and third album “Turn of Tides or Where the Waves Come From” out now. Order the CD here.
TURN OF TIDES OR WHERE THE WAVES COME FROM
“Turn of Tides or Where the Waves Come From” is my current and third album. It 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.
I was able to win over the producer Micki Meuser (Ina Deter, Silly, Die Ärzte) for the recording, mixing and mastering. On “Even If The Sky Is Burning” Brea Robertson joins me on vocals.

“Deep Waters” is the second single of my upcoming album “Turn of Tides or Where the Waves Come From”. While in the first part the chords evoke the picture of a rowing boat on a peaceful ocean, the song soon picks up pace. The dynamics echo the welters of waves. Spraying guitar riffs are followed by gentle verses. The current increases and peaks in springtide in the chorus. We hear of golden cliffs, ships sailing out to sea, burning bridges and castles of the past. The lyric in the chorus plays on the idiom ‘still waters run deep’. Here it’s said that deep waters seem wordless but that they always have some fathomless meaning.
This song was produced, mixed and mastered by Micki Meuser who has worked with greats like Ina Deter, Silly and Die Ärzte.

HEAVEN AND OCEAN BLUE
“Heaven and Ocean Blue” captures emotionally the longing and “Sehnsucht” for the sea. We hear the description of a man living on the coast, who – after a long and dark past – searches for inner peace. Will he find what he is hoping for?
This song is the first result of the collaboration of Ludwig Wright with the producer Micki Meuser, who has produced acts like Ina Deter, Silly and Die Ärzte. The single is additionally a taste of the upcoming album “Turn of Tides or Where the Waves Come From”.
Heaven and Ocean Blue, 13th April 2023
Music won’t change the world. But music might change thoughts. The thoughts of people who will change the world. “This Time” is meant for 30,000 voices at the next climate strike protest. Driven and rocky the track is both manual and motivation. It paints a picture of a growing and impactful movement fighting the climate crisis.
This is the last of the three songs which were recorded at the Tonstudio Wuhlheide in Berlin. Benjamin Ostarek produced, Onkel played drums and Noodt organ and bass.

MY LIFE WITH YOU
“My Life with You” is a homage to love, so it’s treading familiar terrain for me. It was recorded at the Tonstudio Wuhlheide in Berlin, featering Benjamin Ostarek as producer, Onkel on drums and Noodt on keys. This song is the first of three singles in 2022 with a lovely video.
My Life with You, 13th April 2022
“Together” is a song about the pandemic, especially the time in the first lockdown in March 2020. The video is a collaborate effort (as you can see in the artwork), because – I still believe this – we can only pull through this together.
This is my first proper home studio production. Bastian Jünemann added piano and the Browns backing vocals.
