Stephen Marley reflects on the magic of Tuff Gong Studio Image

Bob Marley is an icon in the reggae and overall music community. Regardless of what genre artists play, his music, charm and smooth character has had some kind of influence on them. And aside from his classic songs, musicians from all over the world have traveled to the Tuff Gong Studio where classic reggae songs “No Woman, No Cry,” “Redemption Song” and “Could You Be Love” were all born.

Converse Rubber Tracks is opening the doors to 12 iconic studios, including Jamaica's own Tuff Gong, to aspiring artists across the globe, of all genres, for a chance to record original music at one of the participating studios this coming September.

In a video created by Converse Rubber Tracks, Bob’s son, explains the magic that happens at Tuff Gong.

Mark you it’s not just because the mixing board and mastering room are the same ones that Bob used back in the day. Instead, it is because of the lineage and spirits of talent that got on the mic there that gives it that great atmosphere.

“This sound, this spirit, this energy that comes out of Tuff Gong is special,” Stephen says in the video. “As an artist that aspires to be the best that you can be, these things [are] such a great push, such a great inspiration for going to a studio that’s alive, that has a soul, that has a spirit within the studio because of the spirits that pass through.”
