Montgomery Church

Cielle Montgomery and James Church are ‘Montgomery Church’ – a blend of acoustic folk, americana and bluegrass influences, grown and distilled in the Snowy Mountain ranges of country New South Wales.

With their organic union of dobro and guitar, harmony vocals, and tasteful songwriting, this captivating duo are enthralling in their dynamic intimacy and embrace all that is subtle, spacious, and sensitive.

Since their formation in 2016, Montgomery Church have been quietly but quickly gathering a fan base who site their undeniable musical and personal chemistry as a rare and beautiful thing to see live.

Cielle and James have toured extensively throughout Australia over the past 2 years, playing numerous sold out shows and festivals including Dorrigo Folk & Bluegrass Festival, National Folk Festival, Inland Sea of Sound Festival, St Alban’s Folk Festival, Maleny Music Festival, Hill End Arts Festival, Escape ArtFEST, Tamworth Country Music Festival, as well as appearing at Woodford Folk Festival.

In 2016, Cielle was announced as a finalist in the Australian Independent Country Music Awards for Female Vocalist of the Year and has just recently been selected for the “Women in String Bands CD Project” through the Australian Bluegrass and Old Time Music Association.
