A few years ago Monty decided it was time for a sea change. Leaving a corporate accountancy job in Sydney, Monty set sail to pursue the life of a musician in Western Australia. With a singing voice uncannily like the legendary Johnny Cash, and with a love of his music, Monty created his Greatest Hits tribute to Johnny Cash called A Boy Named Cash (as seen on TV “The Voice” Australia, ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Edinburgh Fringe)
He now travels the globe performing A Boy Named Cash at arts festivals, corporate functions, rodeos, musters, weddings, cruise ships, pubs and clubs, shopping centres, breakfast radio and morning television. He has also performed on The Voice Australia.
Monty also covers a broad range of other music styles from rock and roll and country to R&B and modern pop. His audience-engaging style and musical versatility has made him one of the most sought after entertainers for corporate events, weddings, parties, pubs, clubs and more.
Whether as solo one man band with loops and stomp box, or in the “supergroup” with a variety of traditional instruments - double bass, banjo, fiddle, mandolin, guitar, stompbox, drums - Monty takes on all the popular hits in a unique post modern jukebox style. Monty will have the audience singing and dancing with both a unique bluegrass and contemporary pop/rock feel.
Monty’s combination of country music, classic and contemporary hits, bush dance instrumentals, and audience engaging style always leaves a night to remember.
