“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.
Her 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.
