A stage moniker borrowed from a 16 th century philosopher; an Unearthed gong before finishing high school; a teasing EP which was salivated over; and a 3-time ARIA nominated debut album. And all of this before your first headlining tour. It’s a helluva back-story for Montaigne’s eagerly anticipated run of headlining shows in support of her world-beating debut Glorious Heights.

Review by Scott Singh
Having been relatively quiet as of late, it was a refreshing encounter to see San Cisco perform at The Metro Theatre. With fans filling the venue during the early stages of the night, you could see that many have seen the band perform live before as groups were discussing their favourite tracks together and singling out that one song that will make their night.

Sydney based artist Jessica Cerro took to the stage under her moniker Montaigne and was immediately met with screams of adoring fans, who were eagerly trying to get her attention. The sheer scale of Jessica’s vocal talented subdued any other element of her set. Not to say that the band were subpar to any degree but it was obvious to see where everyone’s gaze was fixated on.
