Jim Dollard is a young hip hop artist based between Kilkenny and Dublin.
According to Jim his music is “rooted in the everyday experiences of life as a teenager/young adult growing up and adjusting to life in college/school/the work environment”.
His subject matter seeks to reflect feelings of isolation and self-doubt, plus things like love, relationships and drug abuse.
“Ultimately, through sharing his music with the world, the goal is to connect with the listener,” a press release explains. “This does not necessarily have to be through the lyrics – it can be through the sparse and; sometimes low key/vibrant instrumentals. It can be through the vocal inflections/sonics or simply through an overall feel for the music. Human experiences translated into music. Race, sex, location/cultural background are irrelevant. All you need is to be yourself.”
