Alex Woodard

Singer-songwriter and author Alex Woodard has toured nationally behind five critically-acclaimed albums, earning prestigious industry nods and shared the stage with some of today's most popular acts. For The Sender evolved from one song about one letter into a book, album, and concert series with a family of Grammy-winning, platinum-selling artists Alex met in his southern California neighborhood. Alex continues to receive letters from around the world and shares the senders' stories through the FOR THE SENDER book and album series.

Alex lives with a big dog and a bigger horse in the mountains of Idaho. When he is not writing and playing music, he can most likely be found surfing, riding his horse, and reading the incredible letters people keep sending him. www.ForTheSender.com


FOR THE SENDER - Series Reviews

"I love this book!" - Ellen DeGeneres, American comedian, television host and actress

"...One of the year's most touching, unique releases" -- Billboard Magazine

"This is a beautifully written book with a powerful message; I read it in one sitting and absolutely loved it." -- Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, renowned spiritual teacher and New York Times best-selling author

"Alex Woodard's For The Sender radiates with love and is a beautiful tribute to the resilience of the human spirit." ⎯ Deepak Chopra, MD, spiritual leader and New York Times bestselling author

"This project is, in a way, the crystallization of the artistic process: the wordless pain Woodward felt when his dog died and he felt his life had stalled; how connecting with others helped to find both his musical voice and the stories he wanted to tell; then the final closing of the circuit, when he reconnected with his unlikely muses. It calls to mind the advice of the late, great Kurt Vonnegut: 'Write to please just one person.' When Alex Woodward found someone -- in this case, his letterwriters -- to create for, he found his reason to create."
-- Amy Shearn, Oprah.com

"From the moment I started reading For the Sender, I couldn't stop. On a coast-to-coast flight, I finished it in one sitting, pausing only to hide my tears. Gorgeous writing and a touching story combines to make this read something special - a word-of-mouth worthy book."
⎯ Cheryl Richardson, New York Times best selling author

"For The Sender is a 'can't put it down' great read that is accompanied by a wonderful soundtrack. An engaging story and concert together. Doesn't get any better than that!"
⎯ Christiane Northrup, health and wellness expert and New York Times best-selling author

"A good book resonates with your heart. Good music resonates with your soul. So what happens when a talented songwriter pens a memoir? You're taken one step closer to understanding life. The pure emotion that flows from Alex Woodard's For the Sender can hardly be contained within its small size. The short book and accompanying CD tap into rich veins of creativity, sorrow, pride, despair, and most of all, love."
⎯ Chris Henning, Honor Your Spirit blogger

"Woodard discusses the hidden elements of his soul with candid appraisal; his memoir is poetry in prose. His talent as a storyteller is apparent in his writing as well as his music. For anyone intrigued by the inner workings of the artistic mind, Woodard's [memoir] will afford a prolonged glimpse, tempered by a jarring dose of realism."
⎯ Julia Ann Charpentier, ForeWord Magazine

"This is an organic tapestry of words and music, melancholy and hope, giving and receiving. It began with letters. The letters triggered emotions, which drew creative talent to themselves in order to achieve expression. Under the midwifery of singer/songwriter Woodard, it became a chain of voices, back and forth, turning loss into healing and passion into compassion. Beautifully designed and lovingly presented, this will be a special gift for anyone whose heart has been opened by love."
⎯ Anna Jedrziewski and Retailing Insight.
