Susanna's Kitchen
Wimberley United Methodist Church
Fellowship Hall
Wimberley, Texas
Growing up in Bandera, Texas, with her two brothers and a sister, some of Robyn Ludwick's earliest memories are of falling asleep across folding chairs in the dance halls where her grandparents danced to live music every weekend. So, it's no surprise that Ludwick's two older brothers became renowned Texas singer-songwriters, Bruce and Charlie Robison.

Robyn didn't initially follow in her brothers' footsteps. Around the same time her brothers started their own bands, she enrolled in the School of Engineering at the University of Texas and mapped out a safe, secure career route. But music was in her blood. Eventually, Robyn Ludwick produced her first album, For So Long.

For So Long was released in 2005 and rose to number one on the Euro Americana Music Chart. The album earned Ludwick a critically acclaimed South by Southwest 2006 showcase and a slot at the 2006 Austin City Limits Music Festival.

Her follow-up album, Too Much Desire, was another set of soulful originals, released in May 2008. This album reflects influences from Jackson Browne to Emmylou Harris. The reviews for her last album were impressive, but Ludwick says this is the album that could help her break into the next tier of Americana artists. Husband/Bassist John Ludwick and multi-instrumentalist Mike Hardwick take the lead on this record. Key Austin musicians are featured throughout, with guest vocal appearances by grammy nominee Eliza Gilkyson and Charlie and Bruce Robison.

Though she may be a late bloomer musically, Ludwick is a Texas girl, which means she was weaned in dancehalls listening to the kinds of songs she now writes with a female perspective. Her songs are rooted in her own experiences and populated with classic characters: sexy Lolitas, lonely women, hard drinkin’ fellas. The music often addresses the struggles of being and staying in love. But make no does prevail, at least now and then.

Robyn and her husband, bassist John "Lunchmeat" Ludwick, are in it for the long haul. People are waiting to hear what Robyn Ludwick has to say...and she's ready to give them an earful.
