It’s been a while since we’ve had a spotlight feature but today we’re back with up and coming hip hop artist, Jor!
Jor (AKA Jack O’Reilly) is a 20-year-old Dublin based hip hop artist, whose improving flow, distinctive vocal style, introspective lyrics and artistic visuals are slowly gaining an interest as he continues to garner listeners from Britain and the USA as well as his own native country.
His style shows continuous range and versatility in the new sounds he is always incorporating. These sounds take influence from a diverse range of artists such as Ed Sheeran, Childish Gambino, Mac Miller and Earl Sweatshirt. He also pinpoints fellow Irish creators such as Versatile and Uppbeat as being influential to what he is working on.
Jor shared his debut music video on YouTube back in July 2020 and it has already garnered over a thousand views. The song, entitled ‘Empire Crumbles’ aims to show how far someone can actually come without those who turned their backs when you went through it.
He has recently announced the release of his next single “Take a Hint” for October 2nd 2020, and hopes to continue increasing his many sounds and spread his music to a wider audience.
Fun fact? As well as music, Jor also has a penchant for art and is a fantastic artist!
