Ludwig Wright is putting Rock ’n’ Roll into Folk. Musically, he is the child of Elvis Presley and Joan Baez. From his father he got the dazzling stage presence and the charming smile. His mother gave him the tender fingerpicking and his strong, clear voice. With catchy songs, delicate ballads and a pinch of self-irony the singer-songwriter has no inhibitions to mix musical styles and creates thereby an all-around warm atmosphere. From this his audience draws both positivity and energy and goes home with not only one ear worm.

In April 2018 Ludwig Wright released his first album “HOPE”. Poppy and with full band arrangements it is about motivation, optimism and dreams. In the same year he moved to London, where he performed in the folk-clubs around town. In that time, he wrote his second album “LOVE”, which came out in January 2020. The songs – recorded acoustically with guitar, vocals and his stomp box – recount break-ups, long distance relationships, family and reciprocated love. The single “Together“ was released in July 2021 and is about collectively overcoming a challenge. The music video was a collaborative effort with close to 50 participants. In general, he likes to give his songs another layer of meaning with interesting videos.

After four months on Tenerife, in which Ludwig Wright solely concentrated on songwriting, the 27-year-old moved to Berlin and released his song “my life with you” in April 2022. As a homely homage to love, he is treading familiar terrain. In July “On the Run” came out. It is the soundtrack to plucking up courage, hitting the road and leaving things behind. Another single release is due in October and he showcases his music regularly at concerts.

The video to “On the Run” is about this inner good riddance. The “IF-Suitcase” symbolises the things which happened in the past that still hold one back today. One carries them around and at some point, one might be able to let them go. “Sometimes it’s tricky for me to deal with my emotional baggage. The best approach is to turn it into something positive, into a song. You could call it cathartic songwriting” says Ludwig Wright.
