I’m fan and love music of all kinds and genres so music itself would be an influence
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: How would you describe your music to people?

IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What makes you stand out from other artists?
DOOLEY KP: Every artist can say they different from the next, but I feel I stand out because I don’t try to fit inside a bubble and do what everyone else is doing. I dare to be different.

I only try to be Dooley KP
IAA INDUSTRY NEWS: What would you like to see changed in today’s music industry?
DOOLEY KP: I feel that there is not originality. I feel music has lost its soul and there is no substance in a lot of it. I respect every artist and their talent to do what they do but the music all starts to sound the same. I feel artist has lost the art and passion that other use to have. We need the music that’s here but we need variety also. So I feel substance needs to be restored
