J Boog
is undoubtedly one of the top reggae singers in recent years. Mentored by island reggae icon Fiji, he fine-tuned his sound and style creating a unique blend that transcends across continents.

His debut album, Hear Me Roar, dropped in 2007 and a few years later he released Backyard Boogie, which included megahits like Lets Do It Again and Sunshine Girl.

Backyard Boogie earned J Boog the best entertainer at the International Reggae and World Music Awards in Chicago. Wash House Ting was released in 2016 and featured tracks with veteran reggae band Morgan Heritage as well as dancehall legend Buju Banton. The album topped Billboard Reggae Album charts and was later nominated for Best Reggae album at the 2018 Grammy Awards. His EP Rose Petals was nominated for best reggae album of the Year at the 2017 Grammy Awards and also topped U.S. Billboard and Itunes Reggae charts. He was also nominated for Male Artist of the year at the Island 98.5 Island Music Awards in Honolulu in 2021. J Boog’s repertoire boasts tracks with Soja, Iration, Tarrus Riley, The Green, Fiji, Chaka Demus, Richie Spice and more.



Collie Buddz hails from the tiny island of Bermuda. One of his first major gigs was working with recording star Shaggy on the single Mad Mad World. 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. WWE (World Wrestling Enterprises) fans would immediately recognize Buddz's voice from the entrance theme (SOS) for WWE superstar wrestler Kofi Kingston.
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.
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.
