Her sophomore album ‘COMPLEX’ was released in August to critical acclaim.

Montaigne on Eurovision - Australia Decides

I’m excited to participate in Eurovision – Australia Decides for the opportunity to release the part of me that is dramatic and extreme. I manage to do it without a massive international music event as impetus, but on the big stage in Europe in front of millions would be everything the drama queen egomaniac inside me could want and more.

About 'Don’t Break Me'

Song:  Don’t Break Me     Written by:  Montaigne & DNA
