Following the release of EP THE LIFE OF MONTAIGNE and then debut album GLORIOUS HEIGHTS, Montaigne’s evolution as an artist was a journey fans and industry became part of, as they were able to witness their growth as a musician and performer on stages nationally.

The release of GLORIOUS HEIGHTS featuring the ARIA Platinum certified single ‘Because I Love You’ propelled Montaigne onto more radars around the country and earned accolades including a #4 ARIA Chart position and the ‘Best Breakthrough Artist’ award at the 2016 ARIA Awards.

2019 saw the arrival of their sophomore album, a collection of observations and stories beautifully delivered against a backdrop of sprawling and theatrical sounds, fittingly titled COMPLEX. The album was representative of the artist who had been powering ahead in carving out their own lane in Australian music – bold and undeterred.

2020 brought another pivotal moment for Montaigne, as she was selected to represent Australia at Eurovision in Rotterdam 2020, having won the Eurovision: Australia Decides competition with their stunning original song, ‘Don’t Break Me’. Returning in 2021 to represent Australia on the world stage in a live broadcast to Rotterdam with their single ‘Technicolour’.

Reining in their new era of music with the single Now (In Space), Australian pop maverick Montaigne followed the release by collaborating with one of the world’s most celebrated and influential artists, David Byrne on their new single ‘Always Be You’.
