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. Cavernous grooves, sparkling electronic orchestration and thick rhythms; songs and sounds that have incubated in a studio cabin in the woods near Santa Cruz, CA, where Woodruff found solace excavating a foundation and constructing a studio, all in preparation for his most ambitious recording to date. When completed, a brotherhood of hard‐jamming musicians delivers this widescreen soundtrack in concert performances of consciousness‐ altering emancipation.
With Woodruff as the genial on‐stage figurehead, Stick Figure concerts are gatherings distinguished by extended improvisational interludes, the mind‐ manifesting hues of a light show, and the much‐anticipated entrance of the band’ s canine mascot, a rescued Australian Shepherd, Cocoa The Tour Dog. The release of Set in Stone is a culmination of a journey that has seen the producer go from a mysterious figure to becoming a major player in the scene, virtually inventing a melodic subgenre, at a time reggae is reaching new heights of popularity.

The Cornerstone is a Reggae/Rock/Funk band hailing from the South Shore of Boston, Massachusetts. The band is fronted by lead singer/songwriter/rhythm guitarist Jackson Wetherbee who has toured internationally. The Cornerstone also features musicians formerly of New England Music Award winning bands The Aldous Collins Band and Last Call. The sound is similar to that of UB40, The Police, Sublime and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Their show is fun, energetic and has festive crowds dancing, grooving, and singing along.
For the last two years, the band has been booked by Heineken to head to the Caribbean to play the annual Heineken St. Maarten Regatta supporting headliners Kool and The Gang and Akon. The Cornerstone played several ski resorts in the winter of 2015 and opened for Ballyhoo. The band has garnered the interest of major labels and industry professionals and beat out over 1300 bands through ReverbNation for a spot on The Levitate Music Festival with Stick Figure, Collie Buddz, Trombone Shorty and Galactic.
This past October, The Cornerstone headed down to Washington, DC to record their debut album at the Lion & Fox Studios engineered by the legendary Mike Caplan (SOJA, Rebelution, Groundation).
