From the musical imagination of Scott Woodruff emerges a vibrant sonic soundscape, revealed in the newest Stick Figure release, Set in Stone. As with his previous releases, Set in Stone was written, produced and recorded by Woodruff, a self-taught musician. An intuitive and accomplished producer, Woodruff crafts authentic artistry from the foundation of roots-dub reggae. Built on the hypnotic rhythms and the instantly singable choruses that are Stick Figure trademarks, the newest songs navigate a complex emotional spectrum from pensive introspection to joyful celebration.
Set in Stone features guest artists who have inspired Woodruff. Kyle McDonald from Slightly Stoopid is featured on "Choice is Yours"; Eric Rachmany of Rebelution joins on "Mind Block" and Collie Buddz fires it up on "Smokin' Love." On the mic for "Smiles on Faces" is KBong. Although Set in Stone's upbeat anthems are centerpieces, darker textures are revealed on songs like the tale of incarceration, "Sentenced," and the brooding "Weary Eyes." Says Woodruff, "Life is a balance between struggle and contentment. That's a part of this album."
