A trumpeter, singer, producer, and dancer who rocks alligator shoes with smoking style and panache, Spencer Ludwig brings any party to life. The Los Angeles-born, half-Filipino vocalist and songwriter merges jazz virtuosity and pop style for a sound that simmers and swaggers with soul. "My music is a calling card for the live show," he says. "Everything is inspired by a live moment. Sometimes, I want people to groove. Sometimes, I want them to bounce. Sometimes, I want them to rock out. Sometimes, I want them to cry. Sometimes, I want their jaws to drop.
