Monique Brumby

Tasmanian born Monique Brumby’s self titled album release is the 2 X ARIA Award winning singer/songwriter’s 5th solo album. Monique’s work displays a unique production style and expressive vocal delivery.


Monique’s songs remind us of why she broke through with 2 ARIA Awards for ‘Best New Artist’ 1996 and ‘Best Female Artist’ 1997. In 1998 Monique was nominated for ARIA ‘Song Of The Year’ for her epic ballad ‘The Change In Me’ from her debut Thylacine album. 

As a songwriter, Monique’s community minded approach to life is reflected in her storytelling, drawing inspiration she has found as Ambassador for Aardvark World wide, an organisation running music programs for young people with chronic illness. Monique has also been involved with fundraising and awareness campaigns throughout her career and is passionate about supporting minority groups and not-for-profit organisations that enrich our community. She travels from her current place of residence in Melbourne Australia to her spiritual home of Tasmania regularly to compose new material. She finds the energy, people and landscape of the island inspiring.
