Stick Figure features Massachusetts native Scott Woodruff on lead guitar, originally accompanied by Brendan Dane on bass, Todd Smith on drums, and Kevin Bong on keys. Dane and Smith were later replaced by Kevin Offitzer and Tommy Suliman.
Their 2012 album Burial Ground hit number one on the Billboard reggae chart.
In April 2016, their full-length Set In Stone also topped the Billboard reggae chart. The album includes guest appearances by Collie Buddz, Eric Rachmany of Rebelution, and Slightly Stoopid.
In early 2018, with a new video for "Above the Storm," the reggae rockers embarked on a U.S. tour that opened at the Fillmore in Philadelphia, PA, on January 17 and wrapped at Brooklyn Bowl in Las Vegas on February 9. Another new single debuted that summer, "World on Fire," featuring Slightly Stoopid.
2019 festival appearances included California Roots (May 24-26) and a headlining set at Red Rocks in Colorado (April 20), where locals Pepper were also on the bill.
