Jessica Cerra aka Monatiagne, was born in Sydney in 1995 and is an art-pop singer-songwriter. Her debut album Glorious Heights peaked at #4 on the ARIA Album Charts.
In 2012 Jessica Cerra was a finalist in the Triple J Unearthed competition but opted to finish her education before pursuing music. Cerra later opted for the stage name Montaigne after the 16th essayist and philosopher Michel de Montaigne. After dropping her debut single I Am Not An End, Montaigne signed with Wonderlick Entertainment.
On August 20, 2019 Montaigne released her second album Complex which marked a wildly creative return for the singer and received warm to strong critic reviews.
