Collie Buddz (born Colin Harper, 1982 in New Orleans, Louisiana) is a reggae/dancehall artist who grew up in Bermuda. Collie Buddz openly represents “Bermy” in his music and has an innovative style that has been compared to Gentleman and Sean Paul. Singles include “Come Around”, “Mamacita”, “Ring The Alarm Remix” with Beyoncé, “Tell Me” with Lil’ Flip, and “Come Around Remix” featuring Busta Rhymes. In 2006 Collie Buddz signed with Sony BMG. He is also a part of Harper Digital. He declined a contract from Interscope. His first album will be released in late May 2007. Collie Buddz employs a style that is strongly rooted in 1990’s era conscious and dancehall style reggae, using beats and vocal techniques reminiscent of the iconic stars of that day - including Sizzla, Buju Banton, Bounty Killer and Beenie Man. The singer has attributed the defining influences on his music to lyrical clashes (such as those between Beenie Man and Bounty Killer) and dubplates, particularly those of Kilimanjaro, that were core to the sound clash culture of the 90’s. Buddz is an avid fan of Buju Banton and cites that artist’s “Mr. Mention” has one of his favorite albums.
