Who’s That Man… In Mr Turk
It’s Spencer Ludwig, most known as the stylish dancing trumpet player with Capital Cities. When Spencer isn’t spicing up the show for Capital Cities, he’s jamming and improvising on trumpet with bands like Foster The People and Jungle.
The funny thing is that Spencer has only been playing trumpet for 7 years. He grew up singing and playing multiple instruments. A teacher told him that if he wanted to get a music scholarship he should focus on French Horn since every orchestra needed one and there weren’t so many players. Spencer took the advice and focused on that instrument for several years until shortly before he was about to apply for CalArts College. As the application time approached, inspired by listening to Miles Davis, Spencer realized that his passion wasn’t for French Horn but for Trumpet. After an intense period of trumpet study and practice Spencer applied and was accepted with a full scholarship into the CalArts program. And as they say…The Rest is History.
