Jason Ludwig started performing locally as a solo act, but formed the band Noctaluca to help him beef up his big, soulful Rock songs. He’s returned to the solo format recently and is prepping a new album that is said to be as rich and deep as Noctaluca, but with more varied elements and a stronger Pop influence.

~ "At Ludwig’s home studio, he plays 12 new, raw songs. From crushingly soulful acoustic numbers with rare, longing vocals to more Pop-influenced tracks with Jazzy influences, these songs are highly complex, but they also maintain a strong otherworldly feel. Inherently classy. Emotion-packed, the sound captures a light heart while still harnessing a certain depth of soul...Stay on the lookout — these songs are put together with the touch of true craft and, as always, the vocals are nothing less than startling and gorgeous."
