Meet the Band!
FELIX BYLER: GUITAR/VOCALS
Howdy! I'm Felix (they/them), and I've been into music since I was a baby. Both of my parents are musicians (my mom has been in one band or another for as long as I can remember and my dad was always playing guitar when I was little), so I grew up surrounded by music at every turn.
I started writing music when I was about 11 years old and I haven't stopped since! I discovered a love for rock music in middle school that transformed into genres like emo and punk, and the rest is history. Playing music and shows is just about my favorite thing to do, and I wouldn't be where I am or who I am without my bandmates and their support.
Outside of music, I occupy my time with nerdy pastimes. I run two separate DnD campaigns, and I have a tradition of watching an episode of Star Trek with my mom whenever we have the time. I'm a film photographer, a hobby which costs an embarrassing amount of money between cameras, film, and processing. I also hold a deep appreciation for all things antique cars.
I'm also an autistic queer activist with a dedication to making the world a safer place for people like me and I like to channel my hatred for the government through my music!
ZORA DULANEY: DRUMS/VOCALS
Hey! My name is Zora Dulaney (she/her), I’m currently 18, and I was born and raised in the mountains of southwest Virginia. I love people, and hate fakeness. I spend a lot of time driving the dusty backroads of Floyd (where I currently create chaos), taking in the wonder that is humanity.
I’ve played drums with Her Majesty for about two and a half years, but I’ve been drumming in total for five. I also play guitar and bass, among various other less awesome instruments. My musical influences are often contradicting, but I am a sucker for mayhem. Kanye West, Motley Crue, The White Stripes, Black Flag, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Death Grips, and The Butthole Surfers have always determined how I go about making music.
I have a passion for art and exposing the nasty underbelly of the beast with my art. Most of the show posters, stickers, and T-shirt designs you see were done by me. If you need me, I’ll be making mischief with beloved friends and screwing strange things to my car.

SAM SLATE: BASS/VOCALS
Sam's Favorite Song:
Hello! My name is Sam (he/him) and I play bass for Her Majesty. My upbringing through music was strongly influenced by my dad (who has been in bands his whole life) who introduced me to a lot of 80's hair metal bands, some metal bands, and some classic blues rock when I was much younger and really shaped the types of music I enjoy today.
I started off on drums at the age of 10 when I got my first drum set for Christmas. I didn't know it then, but that really kicked off my love for music. Over the years, I never branched out of the drums until I was asked to join Her Majesty as the bass player. I spent the next couple years (still am) learning how to play bass and dedicating myself to my bandmates.
Being brought up as a metalhead, my favorite bands include Slayer, DragonForce, Deicide, Iron Maiden, Power Trip, Brocas Helm, Metallica, Emperor, and Immortal. Once joining Her Majesty, a new love for pop-punk, punk, and alternative had blossomed, leaving me discovering classic pop-punk bands like blink-182, Paramore, Bowling For Soup, Green Day, and MxPx.
I really enjoy all things music: listening, playing or writing. Some of my favorite foods include cheese burgers, most breakfast foods, extra toasty Cheez-its, and Caesar salads!
See you guys at our next show!
