March 13, 2014

Bermudian reggae star Collie Buddz has signed with Sony imprint label Louder Than Life, prompting the release of a new music video and news that the artist is already at work on a new album.

According to a report, “Collie Buddz, formerly signed to Columbia Records and best known for hit track ‘Come Around’ has joined the Louder Than Life roster in conjunction with RED Associated Labels [RAL].

“To coincide with the news, he released a video for track Light It Up and is reportedly in the studio recording his next full-length album.”

Collie Buddz is widely regarded to be one of the most successful musicians the island has produced in recent years. His demo track, “Come Around” became very popular in the reggae scenes of Europe, the United Kingdom, the United States, and Jamaica, and lead to his original relationship with international powerhouse recording label Sony.

In recent years, he left Sony and formed his own record label before signing to Louder Than Life, continuing to release new music to great reception all the while.

His music career has lead him to tour dozens of nations worldwide, including Austria, Barbados, Belgium, Belize, Britain, Canada, Cayman Islands, Costa Rica, Dubai, England, Germany, Guam, Guyana, Italy, Jamaica, Finland, France, Japan, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Sweden, St. Croix, Tortola, Trinidad, Qatar, the United States, and even the tiny Pacific nation of Vanuatu.

    Tourism gave Collie Buddz at least $50,000 to promote the island while touring (plp), and then customs, police and their dogs raid the cabins of unsuspecting visitors, ingenious!
