Artemis Montague

Biography

Artemis Montague (they/them) is a singer-songwriter, creator, playwright, would-be director and producer, and aspiring voiceover actor.

A Black mixed-race nonbinary femmeboi creator with co-occurring disabilities, they write and encourage the development of stories and music that feature people at different ages, stages, and places in life, but always with honesty and integrity. Their current musical in development via their company, Sunflower Eyes Productions, is “She Sings Me Home”, a modern queer-, trans, and Black- musical in the African-American musical tradition.

As part of the Page to Stage Festival at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, a highlights-driven, COVID-19 safe livestream was recorded (then captioned post-livestream) on November 21, 2020. The recording can be seen at Montague’s YouTube Channel.

Artemis Montague has also published online opinion pieces related to social justice and the arts on DC Metro Theatre Arts and The Sappho Project and continues to work in artistic education and inclusion when not writing or singing.

To date, Montague has written over 80+ songs that only need arranging and orchestration, mostly in the African Black American musical tradition, but the genres are far-reaching.
