Bio

San Diego surfer Alex Woodard, along with bandmates from Fountains of Wayne and the Posies, released his first album on his own label in 2000 to enthusiastic reviews and gained airplay on over 60 stations nationally. He hit #2 on the New Music chart at San Diego's infamous 91x and #78 on the commercial AAA charts, the only independent artist to do so. The record showed up in indie films, Abercrombie and Fitch soundtracks, and many restaurant and retail establishments, from Vegas casinos to Home Depot. He signed deals with AEI and MTV, performed at SXSW 2001 as a result of strong sales in Austin, TX, and toured most of the year. Alex appeared at SXSW again in 2002, and then returned to Seattle to record the second full-length release with his band. Saturn Returns was released in September 2002, debuted as the #18 most added CD in the nation to college radio, and has since garnered airplay on more than 90 stations nationwide. Alex spent much of 2003 and 2004 on the road, hitting SXSW again in 2004, and logging studio hours with acclaimed songwriter Pete Droge (now of the Thorns, with Matthew Sweet and Shaun Mullins), who produced Alex's new full-length record, Mile High. Mile High will be released nationwide in January of 2005.
Alex lives in a little beach town north of San Diego, in a little beach house, with a big black dog.
