Endorsed by Orange and working alongside none other than Brian May for their debut single, this hotly tipped trio are reimagining rock music in their own image. With legendary Queen guitarist Brian May taking the reigns as producer on their debut single, it’s easy to see why Kings Daughters are quickly being talked about in the upper echelons of guitar music. Formed in London, the all-female trio are aiming to push the boundaries of what is expected of a modern rock band, dealing with anxiety and mental health issues.
How did you develop a relationship with Brian May?
“Brian has been a friend of my bandmate Talia’s for some time and he’s always been supportive of our music in one way or another. But when he heard our demo for Get Up for the first time, he was super eager to get involved so he invited us over to his studio and that’s how the collaboration started!”

What was it like to work with him on your debut single?
“From a guitarist’s point of view obviously mind-blowing – I will never forget the day we put down his guitars; being in the room with him just warming up gave me chills and that’s when I realised, I am actually in the presence of a legend! It was also very humbling, he taught us a lot about patience and perfectionism. He works the old school way and takes his time making sure each take is the best it could possibly be.”
