Boland– an emcee’s emcee, a lyrics-first rapper with a kind of cadence the masses can attach themselves to, all while earning the respect of the hip-hop purist.
His dedication to writing and performing caught the attention of some of Canada's most prolific and eclectic artists. Collaborations with underground hip-hop legend D-Sisive, and an appearance by R&B singer Divine Brown on the title track of his debut album, Shades, which features 10 undeniably inviting tracks that tell the story of the artist’s transformation from darkness to enlightenment.
A multifaceted new rap talent, Boland has been writing poetry since the age of five, and comes from a family tree littered with talented artists. His sister is award-winning actress, writer and director Katie Boland, his mother is award-winning photographer and filmmaker Gail Harvey who's worked on over 100 films; while his father Kevin Boland is an esteemed journalist and best-selling author.
Inspired by everyone from iconic wordsmith Bob Dylan all the way to golden era emcees like Nas and Big L, Boland's style is a perfect melting pot of the old and the new. On his most popular project to date, No Days Off, the ambitious emcee released one song every week for 13 weeks.
Boland is pushing artistic envelopes and making a strong case for how hip hop is compatible with virtually any other genre, as long as the stitching is tight and the skills are right.
