Melissa Ludwig Band

When Melissa Ludwig found her musical soul mate in Mitch Connell, the couple wasted no time giving flight to a host of songs bottled up inside a nine-to-five existence. Originally called Raleigh Maroon, the duo started playing acoustic gigs in San Antonio coffee shops in 2008, polishing songs Ludwig had penned over the years and writing new ones together. Drummer AJ Navarro and bassist Douglas Turley joined the band in 2010. Ludwig’s songs feel at home across genres, from radio-friendly pop to alternative country without the twang.
