In spite of averaging an eleven month yearly touring schedule since 2007, Collie Buddz is prepared to release a sophomore album that promises an even greater insight into the multi-talented, producer/singer-songwriter/performer. He's also made time to work with some of the most respected producers and artists in the industry while also making beautiful music with the production team that made his debut album an overnight success. With production by Supa Dups, Massive B and Seanie B among other contributors, Collie's fans can anticipate Collie's unique twist on popular music. Tony Kelly aka K-Licious, producer of more crossover hits than any other producer in the genre like Sean Paul, Patra, Supercat, Wayne Wonder, Shaggy and TJ Records aka Beenie Man return with production for this album as well. Among friends, Collie is known as a studio rat, as given any sort of free time in the schedule, Collie is hunkered down behind the boards of a recording studio. So it comes to no surprise to anyone that Collie is also ready to release a brand new mixtape.
With verses on hit songs by Beyonce, Rihanna and Kid Cudi, the mixtape is sure to give Collie's fans an appetizer to the entrÃ©e of the sophomore album.
Wanting to release music more frequently and with fewer restrictions, Collie's affiliation with Columbia Recordsended in 2008. He has since founded his own independent record label, Harper Digital alongside his brother, Smokey and DJ Genie while working with his longtime management group, Mojiza Management. The Harper Digital team is already grooming the label into a full production house and artist development business.
With a nonstop touring schedule with his band The New Kingston Band and his longtime compatriot and hype man, Pee Wee, Collie just has one quick stop before hitting the road yet again. He's got to stop by the embassy and pick up more page inserts for his passport.
