With just a single cello underpinning her 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 disarming stage presence has been honed by years of touring the USA, 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.

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. And rarely (if ever) will you see a cello creating the sound of a full-band line up. Tonight is an absolute must for all players and lovers of stringed instruments and those with a passion for world-class indie-folk. Don’t miss Monique at Prema for tonight’s dazzling musical spectacle!

“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
