“I ate a salad today, I ate one yesterday, too.” You’d have to be a rare vocal talent to make those words come alive, and  Sydney’s Montaigne (real name: Jessica Cerro) has a voice that simply soars.

Montaigne-CoverHer debut album is aptly titled, with the singer delivering thrilling electro pop infused with genuine soul. She’s just as effective when she straightens up and simplifies things – check out the ballad Consolation Prize and the pure pop of What You Mean To Me. A star is born. If she’s this good at 20, I can’t wait to hear what she does over the next decade.
