Discovery: Montgomery Church

Montgomery Church are an Australian country act consisting of Cielle Montgomery and James Church. They’ve caught my attention through their captivatingly conversational new folk track Louise.

By Graeme Smith

Louise unfolds like a warm chat with an undertone of bitterness and melancholy. While listening I really felt like lead vocalist Cielle was addressing me directly. Her vocals are beautifully augmented by melodies from James in the chorus and forever accompanied by delicate guitar picking.

Hailing from New South Wales, the duo have toured widely and played many festivals in their native Australia and in the US. They’ve also been nominated twice in the Golden Guitar Awards.
