Monique Clare at the Wesley Anne // The Sight Tour
Harnessing the cathartic lyricism of Björk and the string-fuelled power of Crooked Still, award-winning cellist and singer songwriter Monique Clare is launching her highly anticipated album ‘Sight’ with an Australian tour. The album debuted at #11 on the independent Australian charts, was featured in ABC's The Music Show, and was described as "complex, full of ebbs and flows and unexpected interludes...a laudable and overdue debut" by Listening Through The Lens. With a three piece band in tow, she’ll be bringing the full album to life and sharing the stories and secrets behind each song. This is set to be a night brimming with adventurous music-making, honest story-telling and pure joy.

Wielding a cello and strikingly crafted vocals, Monique Clare delivers indie-folk laced with chamber pop. Driving rhythms collide with intricate cello lines; heart-tugging harmonies are woven through compelling vocals. Raised by classical musicians, steeped in folk tradition and influenced by artists like Björk and Joanna Newsom, her live show is mesmerising, cathartic and offbeat. Monique's intrepid nature has seen her teach cello in war-torn Afghanistan, lead groups up a dark mountainside for sunrise concerts, and jump on stage to play with world-class artists from Kate Miller-Heidke to Eminem. Having spent 2021 crafting and releasing international collaborations through Global Music Match and Folk Music Canada, her debut album ‘Sight’ was released in 2022.
