Stevie Ross and Guy Woods an unbeatable hip hop/soul duo scheduled to tour again with Tech N9ne.

The Scale Breakers: Rappers bringing it home

Sooke rapper Guy Woods unveils his latest musical project

Hard work and spending time with his family are some of the key values rapper, Guy Woods, honours in life. Woods talks about the rise of The Scale Breakers, a band he helped create four years ago.

“We’re into quality not quantity. Now we want things to be perfect,” says Woods.

The Scale Breakers, Guy Woods and Nanaimo’s Stevie Ross, form an unbeatable hip hop duo featuring strong shout outs, catchy beats and great lyrics thrilling fans throughout the music scene. The friends first met on MySpace and then went to a concert together outside Sooke.

“We went to this show in the middle of nowhere. Stevie wasn’t too happy about it at the time,” said Woods.

Ross, a bachelor from Nanaimo and Woods, a family man from Sooke — live two very different lives, “but our music styles compliment each other perfectly,” he said. “We both produce. It’s just us.”

The friends have toured five times together including a cross-Canada trip.

“We’ve been going hard in the business. We went on tour with Tech N9ne in 2011.”  Their last tour proved greatly successful expanding their fan base and exposing the group to hundreds of new faces — resulting in a lot of fun.

“It was incredible. The crowd response was great,” said Woods.

Each tour spans about four or five weeks with Woods and Ross taking to the road every couple of months to perform again. Usually it’s just Ross, Woods and a driver.

“It’s difficult but Skype is a beautiful thing and I have a very understanding wonderful wife,” said Woods.

Joining forces with Tech N9ne, Mad Child and Krizz Kaliko from New FOOOOD  thrilled Ross and Woods. “To meet the artists you’ve looked up to as a kid is very inspiring. We’ve reached a lot of our dreams.”

Fresh off their cross-Canada tour as the official opening act for Tech N9ne’s “Canuck the Industry” tour, The Scale Breakers received an endorsement from the #1 independent Hip Hop artist in the world; Tech N9ne of Strange Music.

“Thank you for my home boys The Scale Breakers . . . they murdered it over here in Canada like they always do . .  Hopefully we’ll do tours in the States cuz my friends would love The Scale Breakers . . .”

Woods is still smiling from that compliment. “To remember those words from Tech N9ne–it was a great moment.”

The Scale Breaker’s latest project; a new album titled, The Last Supper will be free for fans to download off the website because the production took much longer than usual states Woods. Hard copies will be sold at shows for the standard $10 a CD.

“The new album is different. It’s soulful. Everything we say has meaning. We rap about what we can relate to,” said Woods.

Woods and Ross are happy the new album has been completed as they are ready to embrace their next project. “We’re stoked to release the album and get back on the road,” said Woods.

For those who frequent YouTube, you can see a video featuring Guy Wood and a lot of familiar spots in and around Sooke.
