Jessica Cerro aka Montaigne (a mononym borrowed from the French philosopher) leapt straight onto the stage after taking out the 2013 Triple J Unearthed High competition. The self-taught guitarist has been jamming since the age of 13. Now, the alt-pop chanteuse channels the soaring vocals and quirky styles of Bjork, St Vincent and Florence Welch. When she’s not songwriting you’ll find Cerro whipping up colourful, vegan meals for her health-focused Instagram.
