Biography

Thanks to the release of his latest single “FILM THE POLICE” B. DOLAN has experienced a considerable boost to an already noteworthy career. A viral phenomenon, the single and video have gained 100,000+ views a day in two weeks, and endorsements from a slew of celebrities and press that include Michael Moore, Billy Bragg, Jay Smooth, Killer Mike, El-P, and the Central International websites of both the #Occupy and Anonymous movement.

“FILM THE POLICE,” has quickly become an anthem for the #Occupy generation, and shows no signs of slowing it’s spread.

B. Dolan began performing in 1999 in the heart of the spoken word scene; New York City’s famous Nuyorican Poets Cafe, where he developed his chops quickly. An 18 year old Dolan arrived for the first time as part of HBO’s Def Poetry Series in 2002, and the respect earned with numerous performance poetry championships in the two years that followed.

2003 also saw the first release of “The Failure,” a two-disc, homegrown demo full of Dolan’s earliest work.

After this self-release, Dolan disappeared from the poetry scene to pursue more overtly musical projects, as well as his own contribution to the struggle against social injustice.

In the midst of inventing the ragged, breakdown aesthetic of his later work, Dolan also dug in his activist roots by creating and co-founding the Knowmore.org website with former slam teammate and friend Sage Francis.
