    Light It Up Tour: Collie Buddz w/Cris Cab & New Kingston

    Collie Buddz, from the isle of Bermuda, has done something not impossible but something once seemingly very implausible. He's become the most buzz-worthy current Reggae artist over the past few years. In the summer, 2007, Collie Buddz' Columbia Records self-titled debut album stormed the charts entering the Billboard Reggae Chart at first position. The Reggae singjay became an international star when this album went on to debut across the world on every chart from Japan to Germany. Incorporating influences from Hip-Hop to Soca, Collie's music nevertheless has a rock-solid foundation in Reggae - and its power to connect ghetto reality with the highest heights of human aspiration - that is a rarity even in Jamaica. But, to say he's connected to the Caribbean community would be an understatement. Collie Buddz, born Colin Harper, has become the Caribbean culture's resident ambassador. Touring extensively, Collie's passport stamps are a relative reflection of the worldwide love for Reggae and Caribbean culture. From Madison Square Garden to Dubai, Collie Buddz is the definition of an international recording artist. It was crazy performing in the Middle East. "Who would have guessed how big reggae music is there? They knew all my songs!" a jubilant Buddz explains. He has toured throughout Germany, France, England, Japan, North and South America and the Caribbean. In spite of a heavy touring schedule since 2007, Collie is prepared to release a sophomore album that promises an even greater insight into the multi-talented, singer/producer. "We don't have a title for the new album just yet but whatever we call it, the album will be mad, Collie excitedly explains. With production by Supa Dups, Massive B, and Seani B among other contributors, Collie's fans can anticipate Collie's unique twist on popular music. Humble as always, Collie simply says, "I'm just excited to be putting out another album. I love to make music and the satisfaction is in having other people from all over the world enjoy it. I live out of a suitcase and I wouldn't have it any other way."
