Spencer Ludwig

BMI performing artist SPENCER LUDWIG

Latin Grammy nominee Spencer Ludwig began his musical career as the original trumpeter in the multi-platinum band Capital Cities from 2012 - 2015. The Brooklyn resident has been on fire since going solo in 2016 with his first single “Diggy” exploding right out of the gate as it soundtracked the 2016 Fall campaign for Target and was featured in the blockbuster Happy Death Day, the Netflix original movie Step Sisters and the popular video game Just Dance 18. His follow up single “Got Me Like” launched through a global Herbal Essences campaign and is also featured on the soundtrack for the video game Madden 18. In 2018 his independent debut single “Just Wanna Dance" debuted at #47 on the Spotify US Viral Charts and he spent most of the year on the road opening for the Chainsmokers, Jason Derulo, Betty Who and Fonseca as well as performing at Bonnaroo and at Pride festivals around the country. With everything he does, he strives to promote positivity and living passionately while continuing to redefine what’s possible for himself and independent pop artists alike.

SYMLE

BMI performing artist SYML

Brian Fennell is the writer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist behind SYML, which means “simple” in Welsh, and is pulled from his own personal heritage. His song "Where's My Love" was used on the popular drama TV show Teen Wolf, and charted for 20 weeks on the Billboard Hot Rock Songs chart. In 2018, the song received Gold certification in Canada and Belgium and held the #1 spot on Canada's CBC Top 20 charts twice. Grief can be messy, painful, and dark, a brutal
process that rarely offers straight through its shadows for those mourning the death of a loved one. But for Brian Fennell, he found comfort not only by leaning
into his grief, but writing through it.
