Powerhouse singer-songwriter Montaigne is live-streaming a free performance at the Art Gallery of New South Wales for international cultural festival Make Music Day on Sunday, June 21. The ARIA Award-winning artist and Eurovision 2021 contestant will be sharing a few stripped back songs — possibly the newbie 'Don't Break Me', or maybe 2016's hit 'Because I Love You' — via Facebook Live for around 20 minutes.

Montaigne will be performing directly in front of a 2004 artwork by Australian artist Lindy Lee called 'Cosmos — a life of fire'. It'll be a showcase of hope and resilience for the music and art industries during a year that has seen many setbacks, and just as many unifying protests.

The free event is part of the Gallery's Together In Art project, which was designed to bring optimism through art. The project has invited artists Ngaiire, Delta Goodrem, Rainbow Chan and L-Fresh the Lion to perform at the Gallery, and Together In Art has evolved from a lockdown lifeline of videos and pocket exhibitions into a fresh way of looking at art in a post-pandemic world.

To watch, simply register your interest via the Facebook event page and five minutes before the performance time (at 7.25pm) you'll receive a link to the live-stream.
