Today, fast-rising vocalist/instrumentalist Spencer Ludwig embarks on the next phase of his career with the independent release of his new single “Just Wanna Dance,” out now via Trumpet Records (Kobalt/AWAL). The fashion-forward, musical maverick sets himself apart with his impressive vocal delivery and wonderful, wild, and wailing trumpet solos, bringing a fresh dimension to the pop paradigm.
“Just Wanna Dance” is ignited by a funkified falsetto refrain, a dancefloor-ready trumpet hook and irresistible finger snaps, creating a groove that perfectly embodies the song’s title. CLICK HERE to listen to the track, which was first featured on Billboard.com.
“I want to give an edge to the trumpet in pop music like no one ever has,” said Spencer about his musical ethos. “I’m not a trumpeter that writes songs though; I’m an artist who also plays the trumpet.”
Spencer is already primed for a big 2018. YouTube chose him as one of ten acts for its prestigious “Artists In Residence” program. He kicked off the year opening for The Chainsmokers and Jason Derulo, and just wrapped up a tour with Betty Who that captivated audiences with his “one man show” and simmering dance moves. Next up, Spencer will be performing at Bonnaroo and more in the coming months.
Since immediately emerging as an artist to watch in 2016, Spencer’s twist on modern funk and pop has earned him major attention and glowing praise. His first single “Diggy” (CLICK HERE) racked up over 2.5 million Spotify streams, soundtracked a “Fall Style” campaign for Target and was featured prominently in the blockbuster film Happy Death Day, the popular video game Just Dance 18, and promos for NBC’s The Voice.
“Just Wanna Dance” is the follow-up to Spencer’s 2017 single, “Got Me Like” (CLICK HERE), which graced the soundtrack of Madden 18 in addition to popping up in an Herbal Essences commercial and a spot for the NFL Honors, for which Spencer served as musical director two years in a row.
