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 Ft Worth Vietnam veteran and the daughter that finds them. The book "FOR THE SENDER: Love Letters From Vietnam," was released to rave reviews. The album comes out Feb 12, with a record release show at Opening Bell.
