Capital Cities’ trumpeter has gone solo.
It’s not often trumpeters break out as frontmen, but that’s exactly what happened to Spencer Ludwig. He first gained notoriety as part of the pop group Capital Cities, which would incorporate his dynamic horn solos in the middle of their synthpop jams (that’s him wailing on their ubiquitous hit “Safe and Sound”). Ludwig then parlayed his pop group success into a unique solo career. So far, it's proved fruitful with the artist releasing a number of dance hits designed to make you move, including breakout “Diggy.”
