Musical Guest: Robyn Ludwick
Many a green song writer has squeezed callow lyric from near-empty diaries, hoping that one day life might catch up with their words. Robyn Ludwick entered the world of song primed by years of life lived. When pen did come to paper, it teemed with ink–and was driven by a hand softened by love and strengthened by life.
Her earliest nights found her sprawled across the folding chairs of many a Hill Country dancehall, eyelids closing on her grandparents, as they twirled each other over creaky wooden floors. Her older brothers would grow to be Two of Texas’ favorite sons, Bruce and Charlie Robison.
While her schoolmates were embracing the rituals of small-town Texas; Robyn was teaching herself guitar and sneaking off to Austin, immersing herself in the city’s wealth of live music. Eventually she’d settle there, where rent was paid working the door at the world famous Continental Club. Robyn shared many a lean meal with her brothers in those South Austin days. From their Goodwill couch, she plotted a stable future for her and the family she hoped to one day have. She shelved dreams of a career in music and enrolled in The University of Texas School of Engineering and eventually took work in that field. Just after she and husband John “lunchmeat” Ludwick had their first child, and felt their road had been paved, Robyn was laid off. The intensity of such life changes woke Robyn’s sleeping songwriter. “It just pretty much poured out at that point. I guess it was time, you know.” Robyn cashed in her pension, and dove headlong into her craft.
The critics agreed that it was time.
Out of these Blues, was voted No. 1 Album by Texas Music Scene, and Top 10 Album by Austin City Limits, No Depression, 93.3 KGSR, and Texas Music Magazine! Robyn was also voted a Top 10 Female Musician of 2011 by No Depression and Top 10 Best Song by No Depression and Texas Music Scene. Out of These Blues features a dizzying cast, including Producer/Multi-instrumentalist Gurf Morlix (Lucinda Williams), Ian “Mac” MacLagan (Faces, Rolling Stones), John Ludwick, Eddie Cantu, Gene Elders (George Strait, Lyle Lovett), Trish Murphy and Slaid Cleaves.

“The most formidable writer of the Robisons.” – Lone Star Music Magazine
“Now and then, a young artist arrives with such confidence that you wonder where he or she has been hiding. Ludwick sings, and she does seem inhabited by an old soul. Fortunately, she’s very much with us now.” – Texas Monthly
