MONTAIGNE - IMG 1

Montaigne’s fresh and powerful vocals showcase talent beyond her 19-years – a spectacle that does not leave viewers disappointed.

The past year has been a momentous one for the teenager who re-acquainted herself with Australia after releasing her debut single I Am Not An End early in 2014, which was triple j’s 36th most played song of the year.

She first enlightened our senses as an Unearthed High finalist in 2012, before taking a hiatus to complete her HSC.

Her recently released EP Life Of Montaigne has been met with a myriad of well-deserved hype but it’s the live delivery of her songs that is resonating with fans and critics alike.

Amongst a host of other great reviews, Montaigne was named FBi’s unsigned artist of the week last July, Tone Deaf’s ‘11 Most Talented Aussie Musicians Under 18’ and one of New York Examiner’s ‘7 artists to keep an eye on this summer’.

Montaigne released her most recent single I’m A Fantastic Wreck and its video last November, which exhibits quirky animations juxtaposed with real-life footage shot in Melbourne’s historic Mintaro Homestead, built in 1882.

The Sydney-based songstress has spent the past year refining her live performance, being handpicked by San Cisco and Megan Washington as the special guest for their respective national tours, and was awarded ‘Next Big Thing’ at FBi Radio’s 2014 annual SMAC Awards.
