I like music that comes from the heart. In terms of styles, I am therefore very open and listen to bands of different genres. I like a wild mixture between rock, punk, rap, pop and whatever else goes into my ear and stays there – including reggae. I would like to briefly introduce you to my favorite artist of this style in the following lines: Stick Figure. To get you started, check out one of my favorites from the band’s repertoire – Sound of the Sea:
The songs of Stick Figure are generally written and produced by frontman Steve Woodruff. For live performances, a five-member band joins together, consisting of the singer, a keyboardist, drummer, bassist and a second guitarist and backup singer. In addition, there is always a dog on the tour, who is meanwhile called Cocoa, the tour dog and can be seen on the featured image. The band released their first album “The sound of my addiction” in 2006. Since then, five studio albums and an instrumental album have been published. By the way, you can listen to all albums at Bandcamp for free. Here is the latest album “Set in Stone”:
Since new songs have been published in the last few months, the band is probably working on a new long-player. The recently released songs fit perfectly into the previous scheme of the artist and whet your appetite for more. As an example – the video for “Above the Storm”:
Scott Woodruff is a multi-talented instrumentalist and produces his music by recording instruments one by one and layering the tracks. He started like this as a one-man band in 2005 and kept that style to the present day. Top rankings in the reggae and billboard charts as well as the top album charts probably testify his talent and his dedication to the music.
Unfortunately, I have not been able to experience the band live yet, as they are barely on stage in Europe and probably also not very popular. Hopefully that will change soon. Until then, check out my favorite song – Vibes Alive:
I hope you enjoy this artist as much as I do. If you like one album, you probably will like all of them. Have fun listening!
