Sir Dudley said, “It’s a great time for me to be releasing my new track ‘Born Bermudian’ at the height of summer as I think it will be a great new summer anthem to be enjoyed by all, especially over the Cup Match holiday.”

“And I am happy to finally be releasing another song that celebrates our Bermudian culture. We are unique people and we should be proud and celebrate our people. I think we need to stop focusing so much on the negative and acknowledge what is great in Bermuda. We need to celebrate and unite as one.

“The song is all about sending positive vibes into the community. I hope this tune helps us all to forget our troubles, respect our fellow Bermudians and come together as one.

“I really do believe we are a great bunch of people here on this little island in the middle of the Atlantic and the truth of the matter is we need to remember that and acknowledge it and celebrate it.”

“Born Bermudian” can be purchased on iTunes.

      Please find some words and let us all know how you really feel! Is it jealousy?

      • Jus' Wonderin' says:

        Jealousy….please! Him and Fiyah Marshall can be summed up in one word……..(I’ll leave it blank for your imagination!)

    • The good artists are broke says:

      When you have time and money…..

    • Onion Juice says:

      Nice and catchy, but would’ve been more effective if he mentioned about current events that are happening in Bermuda concerning BORN BERMUDIANS being under valued and disrespected. That’s why a lot of reggae songs are hits, because of a catchy beat and a message that millions off people can relate and identify with. The music and message is de voice of de people.
      Nice tune though.

  2. I heart 441 says:

    Some catchy lyrics, however, for him to go international, this tune will not get a good reaction outside of Bermuda.

  3. Danielle S says:

    I think it’s great! And great to see local artists pursue their passions in addition to a full time career ! Team sir Durley.

  4. Ed Case says:

    Great tune, full of positivity. Shame he didn’t do it in our own Bermudian accent instead of Jamaican mon.

  5. Ed Case says:

    Still love it though!!

  6. Catherine D says:

    What a happy and fun song! It is great to see young Bermudians showing pride in their culture and country. I am singing this all the way to Cup Match

    • Onion Juice says:

      Yes, a happy and fun song but de BORN BERMUDIAN is being marginalized, undervalued and disrespected by this Governments anti- Bermudian policy’s.
      “Don’t worry be happy songs” don’t captivate de millions around de world who feel de pressure of economic and social injustice.
      Reggae music represents the voice of the oppressed.

    I think it gives positive vibes, it’s fun youthful and authentic to Bermuda! I’m sick of hearing songs that have no meaning to them. Now I know where to get my fresh lamb chop now!! haha great job Sir Durley! :)

  8. Happy Jack says:

    I love Bermuda so much I’m going to not use our unique dialect and use faux-Jamaica patois?

    I appreciate everyone in our community who shares their creativity. Its all GOOD, no matter how your pronounce it.

  12. dancing troll says:

    long gone are the days when Bermuda was thought of as a destination of class and dignity , pure embarrassment though ! I think all songs that use the name Bermuda should first be approved by a governing body. we all work so hard to make Bermuda a top notch destination only to have it slandered and ruined by the greed and over privilege of a few delusional ones.( no disrespect)
