Princess Music is five musicians that play with chamber orchestras of varying size. The group is fronted by Tyler Ludwick, who composes tightly orchestrated complexities and rich harmonies with a mixture of expertise and mirth. He applies his classical finger-style to an electric guitar, composition skills to string and woodwind textures, and passion for percussion to the polyrhythmic and irregular meters of the music. Princess Music displays high emotional and intellectual IQ and expresses poignant narratives found within the arrangements, which embody subtle pop sensibilities that create a sanctuary for even the most casual listener.

Tyler Ludwick (Guitar, Vocals) is joined by Rachel Sliker (Violin, Viola), Psyche Cassandra Dunkhase (Cello), Robin Chestnut (Drums), Jeremy Averitt (Bass, Vocals)

Princess Music began as a humble project of composer Tyler Ludwick. It has since become a tonal hologram crafted from his obsession with walruses and orchestral music. Equipped with a desire to convey purity, passion, and the power of the chamber orchestra, Princess Music is releasing their debut album, Odobenidae. Odobenidae is fashioned as a song-cycle of eight pieces, undulating between the dungeonesque depths of classic rock grime, and the playful heights of bantering woodwinds and strings. It is sonically sewn together to form the chimerical world of the walrus. Never lacking in drama or caprice, Princess Music has crafted an album intent on mirroring the nature of our lives.
