Maria Daines, is a patron of KAALE.
Maria, who comes from Cambridgeshire and is backed by her guitarist husband and producer Paul Killington, is a brilliant rock and blues singer in addition to being a top quality songwriter with a difference - a high percentage of her songs are about animals, many of which focus specifically on animal welfare issues.
Maria is well known for this approach and her band opened the show for popular US singer ‘Pink’, who is also famous for her outspoken views on animal rights, when Pink brought her ‘I’m Not Dead’ tour to Cardiff Arena in August 2007, for the ‘Party For Animals World Wide’, which raised over £90,000 for six animal welfare charities.
Maria and Paul also write their own songs on other subject matter besides animals. Having got together in 1996 and besides playing plenty of live gigs, Maria and Paul have a global fan network and have made several TV appearances.
Maria's voice and talent has won many awards, including best artist in the International Online Music Awards 2006 & 2007 and her music has been played on radio stations across the world.
Maria's emotional songs touch on many issues to do with the suffering of animals and often make reference, or are tributes to, specific animals who suffered and died as a result of human cruelty.
