Wielding a cello and strikingly crafted vocals, multi award-winning songwriter Monique Clare delivers impactful indie-folk. From tears to belly laughs, she weaves a cathartic story of grief and love through driving rhythms, heart-tugging harmonies and intricate cello lines. Her intrepid career has spanned teaching cello in war-torn Afghanistan, touring her critically acclaimed album ‘Sight’ to festivals across Europe, and leading hikers up to mountain top sunrise concerts. Monique’s disarmingly candid stage presence is born from years of touring the US, UK, Ireland and Canada with The Maes, playing cello for everyone from Kate Miller-Heidke to Eminem, and gracing stages from the Melbourne Cricket Ground to Telluride Bluegrass Festival. Featured on ABC’s The Music Show, described as a “laudable and overdue debut” by Listening Through The Lens, her 2022 debut album ‘Sight’ took out awards for album and song of the year at the AFMAs and QMAs. With a smile as wide as the Cheshire cat’s, and an audacious tendency to reveal her deepest secrets onstage, her live show is offbeat and mesmerising.

“Touching… incredibly beautiful” – The Music Show, ABC Radio

“Monique is most obviously a virtuoso, and can tease musical sounds from her instrument and combine them in a way that is truly fascinating…when joined together with that overarching clear vocal, we have a synergy of sound” – John Lamp, The Pulse Radio

“[She] proved both mesmerising and engaging as she shared her heartfelt and deeply personal lyrics” – GC News
