Live: Monique Clare

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 European festivals, 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.
