Alexa Woodward - Speck

Someone We Think You Should Know: We are very proud to share the music of Alexa Woodward today with you. Woodward, 27, has a gorgeous voice. With her banjo and voice alone, she is making some of the most elegant, soft and beautiful Americana/Urban Folk music we have heard in a good while. A New York native, she vows to release her new album Speck here in Boston. (Just another great reason to check her out!)


A Song from Speck to be released in Boston on APR 26
Alexa Woodward - Spoon

If the moon were a spoon
you could burn from the bottom
I would have to cast the moon away,
It's not that I don't like her
It's just that I want you
to stay with us for a few more days,
A few more days...

You can die without dying,
You can die without trying
But why would you go out that way?
Why would you go out that way,
That way?

There's a little secret
by the door, by the door
If you make it that far,
You might as well take a little bit more
On the other side, A little light/
You can see it through
The floorboard

One soft thing to believe in
One more day here for being
"No, no, no!" Cried the sand to the sea
You can go, but please don't leave
You can go, but please don't leave

You got a dragon
who holds all your secrets,
But he can't take your pain away,
Pain, it doesn't go away
We just give it different shapes

You can die without dying,
You can die without trying,
But why would you go out that way?
Why would you go out that way,
That way?


ANOTHER GILLIAN WELCH: Woodward is a banjo-playing folk maven! She received acclaim as a semifinalist in Jezebel Music's Williamsburg Live Songwriter Competition, NY's largest songwriting contest. She is also known for her beautiful live performances in the most unconventional places (most notably the Austin, TX sewer in January of this year. (300 brace underground attendees were politely "evacuated" through manholes by the local police.) That's giving it your all for your art!

SPECK: The new album was recorded and produced in Austin Texas by Bruce Chandler of 18 Oh three recording, and was mastered by Jonathan Byrd. The Speck Tour begins with a series of CD release parties in Boston, New York and Austin. The Boston release party will be at The Burren in Davis Square (Somerville) on Sunday, April 26th. It's a free show. We hope you can attend! Doors are at 8pm. Woodward will appear with Lindsay Clark and Greg Mullen.
