TUFF LIKE IRON
Born Kendra Scanlon, Tuff Like Iron is a fashion designer turned musician hailing from New York. As an undeniable firebrand, she is inspired by her Trinidadian heritage and a kaleidoscopic life lived between Kingston and Brooklyn.
At the top of 2014 she released her Jah Ova Evil produced debut "1986 - EP" and has since arrested the attention of roots reggae masses with the singles 'I’m Talking To You,' 'Equal Rights', 'Keep Your Head Up' and 'Mr. Babywrong' feat Zionites.
In February 2015, her eponymous 'Tuff Like Iron' single appeared on the Black Roots Riddim produced by Fyakin of Nyle Banks Music. The song is the artist's own affirmation of her purpose in the musical jungle. It skillfully doubles as an anthem for all determined to rise above adversity and seek a higher consciousness.
Her latest single 'Chair Gone Down' is a lyrical call to arms against all forms of injustice and oppression. The track can be heard on the "Be Still and Know" double disc album produced by Conscious Riddims Records out of Hawaii last year.
