Ludovica is beginning to mark her territory in the music industry as an R&B/soul singer. This 24-year-old woman who grew up in a household full of music. She was brought up in Rome and then moved to the United States when she was 17. Today, she is a musician exposed to an audience of over 50,000 people. Ludovica has always been involved in music but started professionally recording and producing only two years ago. A neat detail she shared with me is that she actually started singing before speaking. I had the pleasure of interviewing and getting to know her and I found out just how wonderful she is.
Ludovica draws a lot of inspiration from legendary musicians such as Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Stevie Wonder, and the epic Elton John. She also listens to hip-hop and rap artists such as Common, Loyle Carner, Mos Def, and Busta Rhymes. Specifically to Ludovica, she’s able to somehow convert that rap energy into her own work.
Ludovica, who is already breaking numerous stereotypes in the music industry, would like to use herself as a representation to defy the countless existing barriers and empower other artists to become the legacies of their own truth. Whenever she makes singles, she loves to collaborate with rappers and has continued to collaborate with them for future song releases. As she continues with her career, she would like to use herself as a representation to defy the norms that are associated with music.
Someday, Ludovica would love to work with artists such as Kendrick Lamar, Chris Brown, H.E.R, and Jorja Smith. When it comes to music producers, there are many producers she hasn't been exposed to yet, and because of this, she says she will make sure she always keeps her ear tuned into originality and morale. She said, "This is an industry of unlimited resources, so it is irrelevant for someone's self to shut down in front of real, raw, rising talent."
Due to the events of COVID-19, Ludovica’s live performances have been temporarily put on hold in the hope of being able to return to performing again soon. Though, during this pandemic time, she was still able to kick it with her team, record, work and write. The team was taking the proper precautions in order to stay safe and healthy, the studio being like home to all of them, she says, so the workload definitely didn't slow down.
Five years from now, Ludovica would love to have made a significant world-impact, release her first EP and album, and tour cities. She sees herself making music for as long as she can. Ludovica plans to work harder than ever and deliver only the highest quality of work. Needless to say, we are all excited to hear about her future projects and everything else that is in store for her.
