Critical Praise for Stick Figure:
“Say hello again to one of the most exciting bands in the reggae world…” – This Song Is Sick
“Reggae is always there for us. Like a giant, warm, tie-dye hemp blanket waiting to smother us in positive energy and lift our spirits. Stick Figure’s latest track, titled ‘Smokin’ Love,’ does exactly that.” – Indie Shuffle
“American roots-reggae/dub band Stick Figure is rocking Billboard’s Digital Reggae Singles chart.” – Jamaica Observer
“The music of Stick Figure is taking Roots Reggae Dub to new heights.” – Branch Out Music
Last summer SoCal-based roots reggae/dub band Stick Figure debuted “Smokin’ Love,” which is nearing a combined two million SoundCloud plays between the post on their own page and its debut on ThisSongIsSick, who praised Stick Figure as “one of the most exciting bands in the reggae world.” With summer upon us, multi-instrumentalist, producer, and Stick Figure frontman Scott Woodruff revived the break-out single with a massive remix, joined again by Collie Buddz, as well as J BOOG, Iration, and buzzing Funk Volume rapper Dizzy Wright, who recently released his album The Growing Process. “It’s three-and-a-half minutes of laidback vibes and verses, that will soundtrack your summer all over again,” said Complex in their premiere of the remix.
A few months ago, SoundCloud featured Stick Figure in the first interview of their new series, Meet On SoundCloud. Speaking on his creative process, Stick Figure frontman Scott Woodruff told SoundCloud: “It all starts with a feeling I draw from my experiences out on the road and in this world. I try to capture that feeling back in my studio at home. I have every instrument in my studio and they all play their role in the finished product. I’ll jump from the keyboard over to the bass and back to the drums until everything is perfect. I feel most in my element when turning these feelings that everyone has into music everyone can experience.”
Stick Figure will be on tour with Slightly Stoopid in June and August, and have several festival dates slated for the summer.

Stick Figure Background:
Southern California Roots Reggae favorites Stick Figure are one of the few acts that are able to consistently reinvent themselves in the Reggae world. Stylistically unique, the band is able to build on their Reggae and Dub influences while creating a style completely their own. Multi-instrumentalist, producer and frontman Scott Woodruff fathered the group and is noted for his innovative style of recording; individually playing each instrument and multi-tracking them in unison. His touring band features Kevin Bong (Keyboards), Kevin Offitzer (Drums), and Tommy Suliman (Bass), having played alongside the likes of SOJA, Collie Buddz, Alpha Blondy and The Expendables. Having 5 full-length albums and selling over 50,000 albums worldwide on top of charting #1 on both the Reggae iTunes and Billboard charts, the band shows no signs of stopping any time soon. Last year, Stick Figure kicked off the summer with the June 3rd release of “Smokin’ Love,” a feel-good anthem featuring Collie Buddz, while hitting the road with Rebelution for their Count Me In Tour alongside Reggae favorites Iration and The Green.
