Last year saw the Californication drummer show support for his child's music career by taking to Instragram to share her first ever track.

Sharing an image of the artwork, the rocker proudly wrote: "Check out my daughter @avamaybee 1st song streaming now".

Watch the official video for her Lay Low single, which was released in December 2020.

Ava's vocal talent is displayed even more in her earlier Instagram posts, which sees her tackle the likes of Carole King and demonstrate just how soulful her voice is with a cover of Madison Ryann Ward's Mirror.

Ava isn't the only daughter of a rock star break into the world of music. Frances Bean Cobain, the late daughter of Kurt Cobain, often shows off her soulful voice, while Ozzy Osbourne's media shy daughter Aimee launched her debut album with her ARO band last year.
