Better Make It Quick: Montaigne

Montaigne is a singer/songwriter/performer from Sydney, Australia - her new single "Now (In Space)" is out now, details at

We met on Twitter after she tagged me in a photo that she took of an old notebook full of "I love Matt Corby" signs she and her school friend had held up in a live audience at Australian Idol about 15 years ago. 

That she now has a job where she's a performer is so wonderful to see. 

She came around to my house one morning last week, and filled the room with a powerful and loving energy - she's a really special human. 

Even if you're not a music head or like other kinds of music, I'm sure you'll get a lot out of this chat - we cover what it means to redefine yourself through your appearance, struggles with parents around her sexuality, and what it is to make music for a living. 

I hope you get as much of a buzz out of listening to this as I did recording it. 

Enjoy this conversation with Montaigne.
