Album + Video: Stick Figure – Set In Stone
One of Roots Reggae’s Fastest Growing Groups Releases 6th Album, Helmed by Sole Songwriter, Instrumentalist, and Producer Scott Woodruff
Critical Praise for Stick Figure:
“Top to bottom ‘Set In Stone’ should be counted as one of the best Reggae records of 2015/16. Stick Figure just keeps getting better with every album.” – The Reggae Review
“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
Today, roots reggae favorites Stick Figure are releasing their sixth album, Set In Stone, making their mark as one of the fastest growing bands in the U.S. scene. Recorded in a self-constructed recording studio in the Santa Cruz Mountains, it took sole songwriter, instrumentalist, and producer Scott Woodruff three years to make. With five full-length albums, over 2.5 millions SoundCloud plays on a summer single, 50,000 records sold, and significant touring successes under their belt, Stick Figure is proud to release what The Reggae Review refers to as “one of the best Reggae records of 2015/16.”
“Production-wise, this is the biggest and best album we have made so far,” explained frontman Scott Woodruff in an interview with The Pier. “I spent a lot of time refining the production and picking new sounds to sample.” Set In Stone features Collie Buddz, Slightly Stoopid, and Eric Rachmany (Rebelution) and their previously released single “Smokin’ Love” has garnered over 2.5 million listens on Soundcloud and over 3 million on Pandora.
Along with the album, Stick Figure is also sharing their hypnotic visual for “Sound of the Sea,” debuted by Yahoo. Earlier this week, Billboard premiered the four-man roots reggae/dub group’s music video for “Fire on the Horizon,” set in the never-ending terrain of mighty redwoods and the ocean-sprayed oasis of a sunset-painted West Coast beach.
Stick Figure is led by multi-instrumentalist/producer Scott Woodruff, whose previous album Burial Ground peaked at #1 on Billboard’s and iTunes’ Reggae Charts. Preceding Set in Stone, Stick Figure has released five albums, all recorded solo, with Woodruff laying down the tracks one by one. The current live band line-up features Kevin Bong (KBong) on keyboards, Kevin Offitzer on drums and bassist Tommy Suliman, with Scott upfront on guitar and vocals. Cutting a powerful path through the club, concert and ultimately the festival circuit, the band has toured with Slightly Stoopid, Rebelution, Dirty Heads, Collie Buddz, The Green and Tribal Seeds, and headlined their first national tour in 2014 with many of the shows selling out completely, including the band’s appearance at the iconic Roxy Theater in West Hollywood, CA where tickets were gone two weeks prior to the concert.
Stick Figure will be hitting the road again for their Set In Stone Tour.

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. As with his previous releases, the upcoming Set in Stone was entirely written, produced and recorded by Woodruff, a self-taught musician. 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 that had over 25 million plays on Soundcloud, while hitting the road with Rebelution for their Count Me InTour alongside Reggae favorites Iration and The Green. They released their sixth album, Set in Stone, on November 13th, 2015.
