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.

‘A Boy Named Cash’ – Johnny Cash Tribute Show showcases the greatest hits of The Man In Black as performed by Monty Cotton as a one-man-band alongside a variety of pedals and instruments – no ordinary solo show – See it to believe it! Also touring as duo, trio, and big band!

SOLD OUT Edinburgh Fringe Shows 2017/2016, Adelaide Fringe 2017, Perth Fringe World 2016/2017, and other leading club venues across Australia
