Spencer Ludwig is a fashion-forward and confident pop maverick who rocks the stage with seismic vocal range, contagiously sexy dance moves and wonderful, wild, and wailing solos-on the trumpet. 2019 is off to a terrific start for the artist, as his first release of the year "Best Life" can be heard soundtracking the new global campaign for Royal Caribbean and he is prominently featured modeling in the 2019 Spring and Summer global Tommy Hilfiger campaigns. He's also landed a residency on the last Friday of every month in his home town of Brooklyn, NY at the Freehold where he will debut new songs and curate a fully immersive Spencer Ludwig experience. With everything he does, he strives to continue to redefine what's possible for himself and independent pop artists alike. @SpencerLudwig
