The musical mind of Scott Woodruff is often regarded as endless sea of sounds and ideas. Part of this can be attributed to the fact that as the composer behind Stick Figure, the foundation of his music spawns from various improvisations and jam sessions.
Continuing this trend, Woodruff has revealed a new tradition which has been titled as the “Freeflow Sessions” creating dub beats and instrumentals – the latest of which features Eric Rachmany of Rebelution.
Woodruff first revealed the creation of the Freeflow Sessions back in April, in which there have been four sessions completed and published as of this writing. All sessions have been taking place in the Stick Figure Great Stone Studio, and upon release of the first instrumental Woodruff shed some light on how the idea for the Freeflow Sessions materialized:
“The idea is to make beats quickly, not overthink them and create melodies and riffs that are simple and come naturally. This music is not intended for albums, but rather about exploring new ideas and the process of creation in the studio, while expanding production skills. Enjoy and stay tuned for more!”
Each video clip runs about one minute long, capturing Woodruff playing each instrument across the studio. The latest edition featured none other than Eric Rachmany of Rebelution, in which he can be seen getting after the keys in addition to throwing together a light-hearted riff on the guitar:

While it has been announced that Stick Figure’s seventh studio album and follow-up to 2015’s Set in Stone is due to release this year, the forthcoming record remains untitled as more details are expected to be revealed in the coming months. The Pier was informed however that news could be dropping sooner than later of another new single to join “Above The Storm” and “Easy Runaway” which Stick Figure released late 2017 and early 2018 respectively.
