About Collie Buddz
Colin Patrick Harper hails from the tiny island of Bermuda. In the music industry, he is known as the reggae artist Collie Buddz. Buddz was born on August 21, 1984 in New Orleans, Louisiana. After graduating from high school, he attended Full Sail University in Winter Park, FL, where he decided to study studio engineering. Upon graduating from the top in his class at Full Sail in 2006, Buddz began looking for work in the recording industry as a performer or producer. One of his first major gigs was working with recording star Shaggy on the single “Mad Mad World” from Shaggy’s new album at the time entitled Intoxication, which was released in 2007. That was the same year Collie released his self-titled debut album with Sony Music with tracks such as ‘Come Around’ and ‘Blind To You’. The album was a success and well-received by critics. WWE (World Wrestling Enterprises) fans would immediately recognize Buddz’s voice from the entrance theme (“SOS”) for WWE superstar wrestler Kofi Kingston, which was included on the 2008 compilation WWE The Music, Vol. 8. Over the next year, he would continue making guest appearances on the works of many other artists.
It is no small coincidence that his stage name “Buddz” is slang for marijuana. There have been photographs taken of the artist holding bongs and other pot-smoking paraphernalia over the years. Of course, other reggae artists such as Bob Marley have made weed seem an essential part of the reggae lifestyle. When not working in the studio, Collie found himself selling out venue after venue on one of his many exhaustive tours. Now with new music being released and a good reputation under his belt, Buddz finds himself playing at some of the biggest reggae music festivals all across the world such as, Reggae Rise Up, One Love New Zealand, and California Roots Music Festival.
At the end of the decade, Buddz started his own record label called Harper Digital. In 2011, he would finally release his second album entitled Playback followed shortly with the Blue Dreamz EP. Buddz would then go on to release his next album, Good Life, fully independently through Harper Digital with features from the likes of Snoop Dogg, Jody Highroller, and the Bay Area’s very own, P-Lo.
More recently, he has finished up his fully self-produced album Hybrid which came out in the spring of 2019. Hybrid is Collie Buddz’s third full-length album. The album is fully produced by Buddz and features two tracks with Russ, as well as tracks with Tech N9ne, B Young, Stonebwoy, Dizzy Wright, and Johnny Cosmic. The first five songs on the album have been released and are highly praised as singles. The FADER called “Love & Reggae” a “quintessential reggae jam,” and Billboard praised “Bank” feat. Russ & B Young, claiming “Buddz effortlessly [flowed] on the self-produced melody.” Meanwhile, “Bounce It” featuring Ghanian Grammy nominee Stonebwoy has gotten radio play around the world including on Sirius XM Pitbull’s Globalization channel, and Buddz’s latest single “Show Love” has quickly earned radio play on Sirius XM The Joint and was added to Spotify’s elite New Music Friday playlist.
About Sammy Adams
Sammy Adams is a platinum selling rapper, singer, and songwriter. Adams started recording songs on his Macbook in 2008 from his college dormitory room. Over the course of the next two years, he recorded a large amount of material that would be used on his later releases. He was always told it was a “pipe dream” and practically impossible in this day and age without signing a major deal. In early 2009, he emerged into the music industry with his release of “I Hate College (Remix)”, a remix of Asher Roth’s “I Love College”, on YouTube which went viral. He was asked across the country to open for Drake, Kid Cudi, Big Sean, Wiz Khalifa, Snoop Dogg, Mike Posner, Currensy, and Tiesto (to name a few). He released his first ever EP, Boston’s Boy, on March 4, 2010, which debuted at number one on the iTunes hip-hop chart within hours of dropping. His song “Driving Me Crazy” which sampled Annie Lennox’s hit “Walking on Broken Glass” hit #8 on iTunes hip-hop singles chart. The EP managed to reach #73 on The Billboard 200 without marketing, a label, or any push.
As if life couldn’t get any more surreal, Adams penned a song entitled “All Night Longer” in 2012 which took his touring to the next level. The Gary Glitter sampled song (which currently has amassed 82 million streams on Spotify alone) quickly became his most successful song of all time. As soon as the song started at the venues he was playing, chaos ensued (in a good way). On November 12th, 2012, Adam’s ended his tour at Roseland, NYCs coveted 5,600-person venue, and shortly after made the move to Los Angeles. Being the east coast boy that he is, after 2 years moved back east and settled back in Manhattan, NY. In 2015 Sammy took a break from touring and focused on his writing and production skills. In 2017, Sammy embarked on the “Senioritis Tour” which hit over 42 colleges across the United States. Although his focus was to get back in the studio and pump out another album Adam’s got an offer he couldn’t refuse and jumped on “The Vans Warped Tour” for the 49-datemusic festival as one of the only rappers. In 2018 Adam’s survived a life-threatening accident which left him with a broken neck and two brain hemorrhages, putting his music career on hold. Miraculously he rehabbed with full range of motion beating the 1 in 100 odds that he’d ever walk again. He is currently wrapping up new music and is back in the studio writing for other artists as well.
