Alex Woodard and select members of FOR THE SENDER will be speaking and performing at three Wanderlust events starting this weekend in Colorado, followed by Squaw Valley, California and Whistler, British Columbia. From the Wanderlust site: Already garnering exceptional praise from New York Times bestselling authors and a three-book series commitment from Hay House, the world's leading inspirational book publisher, FOR THE SENDER is a book, album, and concert event that brings awareness to the healing nature of music in a stunningly creative way. Come see why. Four letters showed up in Alex Woodard's mailbox last year, all of them detailing human triumphs and tragedies that are a part of everyone's story. He and his platinum-selling, Grammy-winning friends wrote songs about those letters, and Alex wove the lyrics, letters, and stories into a project that has already changed lives on deeper levels than he could have imagined. Hay House will be releasing the songs and stories behind the letters in September 2012 as a book/album package called FOR THE SENDER. "Woodard's well-crafted songs are cut from the same cloth as Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, and John Mellencamp, whose music eloquently captures earthy truths about living, loving and growing older without losing the dreams of youth." -- George Varga, Music Editor San Diego Union Tribune. Singer-songwriter and Hay House author Alex Woodard has toured nationally behind five critically-acclaimed albums, earning prestigious industry nods and sharing the stage with some of today's most popular acts. His book and album package, FOR THE SENDER, features his story of release and redemption woven through songs written about real-life letters. When he's not surfing in his beach town north of San Diego, Alex lives with a big dog and bigger horse in the mountains of Idaho.
