Montaigne

Montaigne has been flying high since 2012. She was still in school when she first generated buzz with her sonorous voice and individualistic alt-pop, unsurprisingly becoming a triple j Unearthed High finalist with her song “Anyone But Me”. At 16 she juggled her higher education with a musical one and celebrated getting her HSC by finishing her first EP Life of Montaigne.

Establishing herself on the live circuit with sold out national tours and supports for San Cisco, Megan Washington, Boy & Bear and Japanese Wallpaper, she then joined the line ups for festivals such as Groovin the Moo, Come Together, Secret Garden and Splendour in the Grass.

Much has already been made of Montaigne’s powerful voice – regularly compared to Regina Spektor, Marina and the Diamonds, Bjork, Florence & the Machine and St Vincent. That’s good company, and, Montaigne points out, accurate comparisons. “They are some of my influences, especially vocally. I’ve been compared to The National once, I was very happy with that. And Owen Pallett, I was so happy with that, he’s in my Top 5 favourite artists.

“I enjoy connecting with the audience, I love looking everyone in the eyes,” she says. “I want to feel as close to them as possible. I thrive on being on stage.”
