MONTAIGNE’S ‘GLORIOUS HEIGHTS’ DEBUTS AT #4 ON ARIA CHARTS, SECOND SHOWS ANNOUNCED IN MELBOURNE AND SYDNEY

It’s been quite a weekend for Montaigne; she just turned 21 years old, and her triumphant album Glorious Heights made a stellar debut at #4 on the ARIA charts – a remarkable feat for such a young artist.  Due to high demand, two extra shows in Melbourne and Sydney have been added to the BECAUSE I LOVE YOU national tour.  On this tour Montaigne and the band will be hitting the road running, kicking off at The Brisbane Festival on September 13, moving through Toowoomba, Adelaide, Perth, Canberra, Port Macquarie, Caloundra, Wollongong, Sydney, Newcastle, Geelong and finishing up at the iconic Corner Hotel in Melbourne on October 15. 


“Her debut album is aptly titled, with the singer delivering thrilling electro pop infused with genuine soul… A star is born. If she’s this good at 20, I can’t wait to hear what she does over the next decade.”  Jeff Jenkins, STACK Magazine
 
“Sometimes musicians just arrive fully formed, raring to go.  Meet 20-year-old Jessica Cerro.  This is an almighty first impression.” – Cameron Adams, Herald Sun
 
“Glorious Heights is a record that is built around Montaigne’s inimitable voice. Pretty much everything else created with the goal of featuring her vocals in a variety of contexts, in an effort to show off her vocal skillset. It’s truly a grandiose start for the singer – but it is truly apt given the title of the album.”  Music Feeds
 
The new album, Glorious Heights is an in-depth exploration of the world that encompasses Montaigne.  Met with glowing reviews from across the board, Glorious Heights was written in close collaboration with Tony Buchen (Andy Bull, Spookyland, The Preatures) and recorded at Sony Studios and Studios 301.  Montaigne’s voice is ubiquitous and soaring throughout; an earnest staple that empowers and inspires sincere emotion in the listener.  On the release’s incredible chart debut, Cerro says, “I am so dang grateful to hear that people believe my suite of songs so valuable as to merit the dispensation of that funny human invention we call money – which – as we all know – is exchanged for “goods” –  to a degree that earns it a place in the top 5 tiers of the fabled ARIA charts.  Number 4, baby.  What a time to be Montaigne.”
 
A Montaigne show must be seen to be believed, as the undeniable talent this young person encapsulates is truly something to behold.  Pumped to be hitting the road to tour her new album for fans in September and October, Cerro enthuses, I think this will be the most fun tour yet.  It’s gonna be like a grand quest, and what we’ll be questing for is les frissons which come with live performance.  It’s gonna be so nerdy and great!”

Debut album Glorious Heights is out now
