PD: What type of artist are you?
DJ: We are a 4 man alt rock/pop band from Kent
PD: Tell us the brief history of yourself.
DJ: Stuart, Wayne and Rowan met whilst at Uni. Pete came on to the scene a fair few years later when Stuart and Pete’s girlfriends introduced them to each other. Stuart and Pete after some time decided to start up a project as a two piece which became Dohny Jep, we then decided that we wanted to get Wayne and Rowan on board and that was the best decision we ever made!
PD: Who are your musical and non-musical influences?
DJ: Ryan Reynolds
PD: What are your dreams and goals?
DJ: To do a world tour.
PD: Who writes your songs, what are they about?
DJ: We write collectively, they all have personal meaning to us, some things like regretting your actions as a child and where you are at in life now, or mental health struggles etc. So quite a mixed bag of things!
PD: How do you promote your band and shows?
DJ:We rely on dedicated fans and the power of social media, and of course publications such as yourselves to help spread the word of Dohny Jep

DJ: Periphery – Marigold

PD: So what are you working on at the moment?
DJ: Pete’s currently editing the music video for our next single and we have been demoing new tracks ready for the follow up album, due to the difficulties that the world is currently facing.
PD: What music have you available online and where can we buy it from?
DJ: It’s good that you’ve asked that as we recently put out our new single Dreamer (https://lnk.to/DoB2Bv) which is available on all platforms.
