Alexa Woodward

Born in Alabama, raised in South Carolina and Virginia, and educated in Boston and New York, Alexa Woodward's songs are born from many landscapes. This young lawyer turned songwriter has inspired audiences as she has toured the US, Canada, and Europe since 2009. After spending three years living in New York as a law student and part time musician, she passed the New York bar, and reevaluated her quality of life. After wrestling with her muse, a love for songwriting led her to leave a burgeoning legal career to follow her heart into the uncertain terrain of full time music. That risk has proved rewarding, as her haunting, Appalachian influenced banjo songs have brought her national attention from CMJ’s college radio charts, song placements on MTV, National Geographic, Adult Swim, Twilight in Forks, and Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance. With a quirky mixture of old and new, her music has been described as “timeless,” “delightful,” and “exquisite” by No Depression, “Pure southern magic” by Jonathan Byrd, and "Shimmering, spectral Americana" by the Boston Globe.
