Perth acoustic solo musician/singer “Monty” features a low voice and contrasting ability to belt out pub rock classics covering all style variations, Rock & Roll, Pop, RnB, Country, Blues, Soul, Celtic, and Folk to name a few! Monty’s command of his acoustic guitar remains second-to-none and his sharp wit and smile never fails to radiate from stage as he delivers his setlist of modern hits to everyone's favourite anthems.
Monty is available for corporate events, private functions, weddings, special occasions etc…
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!
