An Interview With Maria Daines, Dec 2007

Maria Daines fronts a hard working no nonsense rock band playing original material written by Maria and guitarist Paul Killington. Hailing from Cambridgeshire, UK, they formed in 1996 and became a fixture of the East Anglian live music scene, notching up over 700 gigs, including supporting Wishbone Ash and making several TV appearances throughout the 90's.

Maria Daines garnered acclaim in over 20 countries, winning many awards, notably International Artist of the Year 2006 and 2007, Best vocalist (IOMA) Artist of the Year Soundclick 2005, Best Female Vocalist Dmusic, Golden Kayak Awards at the Independent Artist Company 2005, Best Female Artist 2006, Best Country Song 2006, Texas Humane Legislation Network Humane-itarian Award 2006 and top artist of all time at Songplanet Radio, enabling chart success in blues, rock and country genres on many popular OMD's including no 1 at Cashbox Magazine's Indie hitsline earlier this year.

In August 2007, the band supported US artist "Pink" at the Party For Animals Worldwide Launch at Cardiff International Arena. The concert raised over ?90,000 for six important animal welfare charities.

APE (Against Primate Experiments) is releasing the fantastic rock song "Monkey In A Cage" (MiaC) in February 2008 with all proceeds going to animal rescue. The song can be heard here:

With support from Maria's UK publisher and a top music promoter working with international stars Sheryl Crow and Sting, MiaC is now ready for distribution to mainstream radio, following a successful debut on BBC Radio Cambridge and recent playlisting on Total Rock!!

APE have had fantastic support from MEP's regarding this original chart challenge, with quotes of support from Norman Baker, Mike Hancock, John Bowis and Paul

"No civilised country should be using highly intelligent and sensitive creatures for experiments, the purpose of which is all too often simply to make money. Crude 18th century medical practices have no place in our 21st century world".
       -- Norman Baker MP

"I am very happy to support this song and the campaign to ban experiments on primates. It is clear that primates are intelligent beings with feelings. We should not therefore subject them to needless suffering and pain. I hope this song will help highlight the campaign and increase the pressure on Government to ban experiments on them".
      -- Mike Hancock CBE MP

"Nobody wants to put human life or health at risk but increasingly we are aware that primate testing is largely unnecessary. We can therefore move towards a world when we no longer have to sacrifice primates in the search for scientific advance. In the first instance we can absolutely ban the use of the great apes and of animals caught in the wild. Then we can put the pressure on to find and validate alternatives to the tests that currently use macaques and marmosets."
      -- John Bowis MP

"I think the song is excellent, and I applaud this noble effort in raising awareness of the horror of primate experimentation" .
      -- Paul Blanchard MP

APE have already had articles printed in the Independent newspaper and Lifescape magazine and we are currently looking for other media outlets who may be interested in running an article regarding this original chart challenge.
