Eggert Nielson aka MONT is an American-Icelandic musician, living in Ísafjörður, Iceland. He is much influenced by his parents, who are both musicians. Eggert started playing the piano when he was seven years old and guitar when he was 14, and then also got already a lot into songwriting. Eggert grew up in Virginia, USA, before he and his parents moved to Iceland in 2010.
He was part of the band Rythmatik, but left the band for personal reasons and started to work much more on his electronic music.
In October 2016 MONT will release his first video and in November 2016 he will be around to play some Iceland Airwaves off-venue shows as his live debut. Follow MONT on Facebook for further updates!
