Independent from the jump and fueled at times by willpower and community alone, B. Dolan has expanded his creative influence beyond music into film, poetry, and songwriting over the past fifteen years. Dolan engages deeply in his craft while actively fostering a community among his fans and friends. With a crate's worth of LPs, mixtapes, and live projects already in his catalogue, the road-tested hip hop poet continues to navigate life, aging, liberation, trauma, and post-lockdown culture with vulnerability and curiosity on his latest LP “The Wound is Not The Body”.

In the midst of a difficult upbringing, the Rhode Island native discovered solace and purpose in hip-hop. He moved to New York, dropped out of school, and began performing at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe in NYC in 2001, years later he crossed paths with Sage Francis, signed to his indie label Strange Famous, and began touring the world in 2005.

Notable tours include The Church of Love & Ruin, which featured the drag performer Katya on her first touring stages and combined drag, hip hop, and sissy bounce and marching bands, and toured on two continents in 2012. Most recently the Minecraft concert series #NetherRap, created by Dolan during the pandemic. The shows connected with thousands of people and raised funds for the Union of Musicians and Allied Workers as well as sidelined bands and musicians.
