About Alexa Woodward
Alexa Woodward’s haunting banjo songs are rooted Appalachia and were refined in the music scenes of Boston and New York, where she began performing. With a distinctive banjo playing style and lyrics that carry the listener into vibrant narratives, Woodward has been well received by audiences across the US, Canada and Europe since she began touring in 2009,
Her music has been placed in the Twilight Series films, internationally on National Geographic's program, "Departures", and has been used on national Television in the US on Fox's "So You Think You Can Dance."
Likened to Judy Garland, Neko Case, Patsy Cline, and Sufjan Stevens, Woodward communicates a range of emotions through her voice and lyrics, and her songs hold a mountain tradition in tension with the urban and international experiences of young wanderlust.
