Just as the word Ludic describes, spontaneity and undirected playfulness perfectly represent how Ludic makes music. Based out of Vancouver, Canada, brothers Max and Rhett Cunningham and friend Ayla Tesler-Mabe make up Ludic. The trio has focused on crafting their timeless yet envelope-pushing style, fueled by their inspiration from the musical greats of the past and the present. Their love of pop, R&B, funk and soul shines through in their music. This year the trio joins the roster of talent that is a part of the First Up with RBCxMusic program. Ludic always aims to craft infectious grooves and songs while continuously pushing the limits of their own musicianship.
Our first single was released in 2019.
