Windwood’s mission is to provide these children with help, hope and healing they deserve so they can go onto to being productive, happy, healthy adults.

Lindsay Holler

Lindsay Holler sings and plays guitar. her voice moves onto the sidewalk through a cracked upstairs window on dusky afternoons. it smells you with its tongue, pensively considers, and strikes. In clubs and theatres … its the same. On some occasions it caresses; other times accuses. When amplified it can be seen on the air … then we all drown.

Holler lives in Charleston, South Carolina. She is a singer/songwriter and concert producer. She hails the South as home and has lived in New Orleans and New York; she studied at Berklee College of Music in Boston. The music’s current state of evolution is supported by a little twang and a little late-night clarity.

Holler cites influences from the likes of Tom Waits, Gram Parsons, Nina Simone and Neil Young – preferring genre straddlers, categorical misfits and indefinables.

Hazel Ketchum

Hazel Ketchum is a singer, composer and multi-instrumentalist. Hazel plays guitar with the Hungry Monks , lute with Corde Contanti, guitar in the Irish duo Banna de Dhá and is the drummer for The Harrows. Hazel’s teaching studio Hungry Monk Music is a popular place for children and adults to learn music. Hazel can be heard on her newest recordings The Hungry Monks “Superior Crust” , Banna de Dhá “Band of Two” and “Science Songs Rock”

Alva Anderson

Born in the Bronx to parents who fostered a great appreciation for the Arts, violist/vocalist Alva Anderson began piano lessons at the age of 10. Her desire to be a part of the music program in high school led her to the viola. At the time she didn’t know what a viola was but it soon became her ‘voice’. Her other voice revealed itself while Alva was on tour in Europe with a chamber music ensemble. Late one night at a jam session in a jazz club in Switzerland, a good buddy invited her to the microphone. The song was “My Funny Valentine.” The feeling and audience responses were intoxicating. The message was clear; she was twice blessed. With the acknowledgment of those gifts came the great joy, the responsibility to support, develop and share them with others. Back in the ‘States’ Alva began to frequent jam sessions throughout New York City. She attended vocal and instrumental workshops with Barry Harris, Billy Taylor, Sheila Jordan, Jay Clayton, Jimmy Heath and Billy Mitchell, Frank Owens, John Blake, Turtle Island String Quartet and Jimmy Seigler. For more than 20 years Alva has shared her love for music with her students in the New York City public schools. Many of her students have gone on to become professional musicians and music teachers. Alva’s has created two one women shows; The Elegant One, the Life in Music of Ella Fitzgerald and Fine “Brown” Frame, the Music of Ruth Brown. Her band members Tom DiPietra, guitar; Jesse Crawford, bass and Charlie Taylor, percussion have performed these concerts in libraries, churches and schools in New York City. With this band Alva Anderson creates original music and puts her own spin on the music of these singers and the other singers who have fed her desire to sing.

Exavia Baxter

Exavia has recently been singing back up in shows like the “Women &” series at the Charleston Music Hall and she is excited to be sharing the stage and spotlight with all the lovely ladies.

Equipped with a rich and soulful voice this sultry Charleston, SC native can move the soul of the audience with her emotional energy and angelic-like presence. She began singing at the tender age of 2, and realized in elementary school that she was set apart from her peers. Shortly after, she auditioned as was accepted into the Charleston County School of the Arts where she attended from 6th-12th grade. Her voice was refined by technical vocal training during that time frame. One of her greatest accomplishments during her time at the Charleston County School of the Arts was winning a vocal competition that gave her the title of #2 Alto in the State of South Carolina in the All-State Vocal Competition.

Well prepared for a successful launch into a career in music; Christian graduated from Winthrop University and formed a band with some college friends called The Pearls and Funk Band. They performed together successfully for years at several venues in the Charlotte, NC area receiving notable exposure.

In 2013, she further solidified her profession by beginning her solo career and forming the band Black Diamond and Company, an eclectic funk and soul band. She had her first two breakout shows “Shine Bright Like a Diamond” Part I and II which were successful and set the stage for her as a career artist. Christian is often called upon by local bands, The Secrets and Darrell Ravenel and Friends, who require her powerful voice to lead the charge in bringing the best to their audience. Her impressive talent has rewarded her with many opportunities to include opening for such major recording artists to include The Average White Band, RnB sensation Tank, Tim Bowman and K Michelle.
