About COLLIE BUDDZ:
Born in New Orleans: raised on the isle of Bermuda with intermittent stays in urban Toronto: Colin Harper is not an easy youth to pin down geographically. His musical alter ego Collie Buddz however: is one of the most firmly grounded voices you may ever encounter. Incorporating influences from hip-hop to soca: Collie&rsquo-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.
Born in 1981: at the dawn of the turbulent era signaled by the twin omens of Bob Marley's passing and Ronald Reagan's election: Collie was immersed in the sound system culture of Bermuda aka "The Rock" since the age of 6. "I used to come home from primary school and my brother would always be on the turntables: playin his new 45's an' I'd just be there vibesin." The evolution of dancehall and sound-clash culture into a movement of it's own in the late 80s and early 90s set the backdrop for young Collie's discovery of his own sonic identity: and the dancehall kings of that generation – Buju Banton: Bounty Killer and Beenie Man served as his primary influences.
