“Heartland” is the 9th track of Stick Figure’s latest album Burial Ground that was independently released on June 12th, 2012. The album, which features a guest appearance by Reggae veteran, Half Pint, received high praise and a 4 star Album Review that you can read HERE.
Almost a year later, Stick Figure has released an acoustic rendering of the song to give away for FREE download. Here’s what front man Scott Woodruff had to say about the song…“Heartland has always been one of my favorite tracks from the ‘Burial Ground’ album. The studio version is very intricate and layered, so I thought it would be fun to strip this one down and record it in a raw acoustic fashion, without the reggae style. It’s not too often I break away from the reggae influence, but it’s always fun to mix things up and give people something new and different from Stick Figure.”
Five of the fourteen tracks were written by Woodruff and long-time friend TJ O’Neill while abroad. The two spent time in Indonesia, Australia, Fiji, Thailand, and New Zealand over the past few years, and found plenty of inspiration for original music.
