A few years ago Monty decided it was time for a sea change. Leaving a corporate accountant job in Sydney, Monty set sail to pursue the life of a musician in Western Australia. A few years later Monty now travels the globe performing his Johnny Cash Show “A Boy Named Cash”.
Monty woke up one day in 2012 and realised he could imitate Johnny Cash. “A Boy Named Cash” was born – a greatest hits tribute to the legend Johnny Cash. From this point on Monty has performed as Johnny Cash all around Australia and the UK – pubs, clubs, shopping centres, arts festivals, mine sites, corporate functions, cruise ships, breakfast radio, morning television, and ‘The Voice’ Australia. See it to believe it!
“You hit that so perfectly” – Larry Emdur, Seven Network’s Morning Show commenting on Monty’s Johnny Cash live showcase appearance.

“4.5 Stars” - The West Australian
“Monty ran through the pantheon of hits of Johnny Cash – his voice is spot on, distinctive… bringing all the passion and excitement of the Cash catalogue” - Perth Cafe Culture
