With a sound that has been likened to Iron and Wine, Rufus Wainright, and Gillian Welch, Alexa Woodward is known for her fusion of classic Americana and urban folk.
Jezebel music says, "Armed with a banjo (that at times comes across more like a harp), a full, animated voice, instantly memorable lyrics and simply excellent songwriting, Alexa Woodward does it well. Each of Alexa’s songs is structured and unfolds as if spirited by an old soul, like a lost undiscovered classic. Her voice is commanding and present, colored by moderate vibrato, but maintaining the necessary clarity for imagery-heavy lyrical narratives to shine. Hers are the kind of cliché-less, sensible and immediately relatable words that sound as good advice or a great story spoken by a friend."
Jonathan Byrd says of Speck, "This album is distinctive. It's odd and perfect." With appearances from some of Austin’s finest musicians, “Speck” is a blend of haunting songs of loss and hopeful tunes about gardens in New York. Fusing classic Americana with her own variety of urban folk, Woodward joins the ranks of artists like Jolie Holland and Martha Wainright to share her strange creation with independent music lovers of all persuasions.
