Alex Woodard

Nowhere Near Here

Woodshack

Nice straightforward pop/rock with a touch of the alt.country acoustic guitar strum flowing through the songs. Singer/songwriter Alex Woodard moves between a Bruce Springsteen slice of life and a road weary take on the journey through. Some nice straight and steady grooves move through the songs, keeping the quieter moments moving like a midnight highway and the full epic guitar endings from flying too far off the ground. Subtle touches of cello fall into the mix, and a nice use of the Wurlitzer keeps this from being just another rock n’ roll band.
