"I don't see myself as a musician, I'm more of a performer or entertainer. And I've got no time for music that doesn't entertain" say Merseyside's Queen Zee. "Apathy is in fashion. Minimalism has gotten so minimal that all meaning has disappeared completely. I'm not sure what I want to be, but I know I want to be the opposite of that."
Fronted by the peculiar and direct Zena Davine (aka Queen Zee) the band is completed by co-founding member and multi-instrumentalist Jason Taylor-Brown, Frankie Wortho (Bass & Vocals), Ash Summers (Keys, Percussion & Vocals) and Dave Bloom (Drums & Percussion).
The often accredited "punk" tag seems a stretch for Queen Zee. Having been in and out of Liverpool's anarchic DIY scene in their teenage years, founding members Davine & Taylor-Brown both acknowledge Queen Zee as a step away from the typical punk band format. "I wanted to create a persona, as if it was a drag queen or superhero, but that was rooted in punk. In a Leigh Bowery meets Debbie Harry type of way" states Davine. These home produced, online demos quickly reached the ear of Taylor-Brown and the duo started their assault on the art around them.
In 2018 the band appeared on Huw Stephen's Radio 1 new music show with their Maida Vale live session. Having made BBC history with first all female crew. In the following interview the band announced that their debut album was on it's way.
