Collie Buddz “Glass House” Background:
Produced by legendary producer Supa Dups, Collie Buddz first album in 10 years features the smooth vocals and familiar dancehall sound that led to Collie Buddz’ rise. Supa Dups was behind some of Collie Buddz’ biggest hits to date, including “Blind To You,” “Tomorrows Another Day,” and “Sensimilla.” The album was officially released on May 19th via his own label, Harper Digital.
Buddz elaborates on the album, saying, “Good Life is an album that is a reflection of my life the last 10 years. Regardless of the obstacles we deal with in our day to day lives the glass can be looked at as half empty or half full. Ultimately it’s about perspective, perseverance and working towards a solution. I have been blessed with the best fans in the world who have supported me for years and are patiently waiting for new music. I’m really excited to unveil this project to them and already working on the next one.”
As for the song we’re featuring, “Glass House,” I was talking to our own Brian Winters, whose also reviewing the album as of this writing, and he was telling me how he enjoyed this track the most. It’s a hard reggae track with gunshot sounding snare drops, bouncing keys rounded out by some deep bass. Buddz tells The Pier: “The riddim for Glass House is one of my favorites and even now I listen to the beat on repeat. The song itself helped me get a few things off my chest and I felt like it was the perfect final track for the album.”

Collie Buddz Background:
The New Orleans-born Bermuda-bred singer and producer known as Collie Buddz, incorporates influences from Hip-Hop to Soca, but has a rock-solid foundation in Reggae. Collie Buddz has done something not impossible but something once seemingly very implausible. 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 sing-jay became an international star when this album then went on to debut across the world at the top of every chart from Japan to Germany. With much of the production coming from Collie himself, he delivered a solid debut with contributions from Supa Dups, Shea Taylor, Bang Out, Screwface, Bobby Konders and Crown N Kah-So-Real to name just a few.
As a producer, Buddz was the most comfortable in the studio. But he couldn’t find any artists that could really pull off the sound he desired so Buddz far too often found himself just running back and forth from the vocal booth to the mixing booth as he layered his own vocals for his production work. After a while, it just became easier for him to just do it all by himself. At this juncture, Colin Harper became Collie Buddz.
With his independent spirit guiding his journey Buddz has toured the world. He’s toured in support of several artists such as Cypress Hill, Rebelution and Matisyahu. He’s performed in front of thousands at the largest music festivals such as Lollapalooza, Boomtown, Summer Jam and the California Roots Festival.
While touring, Buddz still found time to record new material and release original music independently on his own record label, Harper Digital. He’s even managed to launch a new radio station back home in Bermuda (Vibe 103) and become a father!
