Alex Woodard is a singer-songwriter who writes songs about letters and weaves their backstories into a book and album package called FOR THE SENDER. Most of these letters that had inspired the songs were about the extraordinary beauty and growth that people were creating post-trauma.
His latest project, FOR THE SENDER: Love Letters From Vietnam, is an album of songs created from letters left behind by a Vietnam veteran and the daughter that finds them. The book FOR THE SENDER: Love Letters From Vietnam, was released to raves and now the album comes out Feb 12. This is a compelling story of service and sacrifice, love and redemption, and the power of forgiveness and healing through music, written and performed by Woodard.
Paste Magazine posted the music video to the song ‘East Texas Sky,’ watch here.
