Who is Montaigne?
Montaigne (Jessica Cerro) was born on August 14 1995 in Sydney was raised in Hills District in the northwest of the city. She describes her ethnic background as ” a mixture of Argentinian, Spanish, Filipino and French”. She spent two years working on her songwriting skills, during which she started using the stage name Montaigne, inspired by the 16th-century essayist and novelist Michel de Montaigne.
She was also featured on the Hilltop Hoods’ song “1955”, which reached number 2 on the Australian Singles Chart in February 2016. In November of the same year, she won the “Breakthrough Artist -Release” Award at the ARIA Awards.
In 2018, she released “For Your Love” as the lead single for her second album “Complex”, which debuted at number 19 on the Australian Albums Chart. She released two more singles from the album: “Ready” and “Love Might Be Found (Volcano)”.
In 2020 she won Eurovision – Australia Decides with the song “Don’t Break Me”. The song was written and composed by Anthony Egizii and David Musumeci (collectively known as DNA) and Montaigne herself. DNA has written the Australian entries in 2016, 2017, and 2018. Montaigne was internally reselected to represent Australia in 2021 by SBS. The song “Technicolour” was selected internally by SBS, the first year since 2018 that the Australian public has had no say in either the singer or song for Eurovision.
