This has been a great year for Melbourne based street singer Tash Sultana winning Pop Award for Emerging Artist of the Year Award and Album of the Year Award for Album Flow State by Pop Magazine. Last year her Album Flow State also won Best Blues and Roots award at annually ARIA music award.
Tash sultana is a self-taught vocalist, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, who grew up in Melbourne. At the age of three, she started playing the guitar which was gifted by her grandfather. Tash has always curious about music and that makes her learn many instruments like Guitar, bass drum, bass drums, Arabic ouds, pan flute, Saxophone, beatboxing and many more. Tash music has not a specific music genre but mostly covers alternative rock, reggae rock and psychedelic rock genres.
Tash had her hard time too at the age of 17. She associated with bad company and started taking drugs leads to develop drug-induced psychosis. After therapy, she recovered from it. Tash taught herself music therapy that helps played away from the pain.
Tash completed her college started looking for regular work but find it hard to get it. So she started her career as a street singer performing on the street of Melbourne. Soon she becomes the vocalist of a band called Mindpilot with which won several band battles in Melbourne but they split in 2012.
In 2016 a viral video with one million views opens the door for luck. She won J awards (Australian radio station award for new artist) for unearthed artist of the year and her two single “jungle” and “notion” which made it to Triple j hottest 100 lists at 3rd and 32nd position respectively. Tash song “jungle” viewed 40 million times and in 2018 also included in Fifa game’s song list which is a big achievement. This street singer extended play record called “notion” reached the number 8 position in ARIA (Australian Recording Industry Association).
The success of the extended play record “notion” made Tash Sultana for the announcement world tour in Australia, Europe, NewZealand and the United Kingdom. Soon after single “ murder to the mind”, she was suffering from laryngitis that cancelled the tour and postponed. The postponed tour was complete and she announces the homecoming tour visiting Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide.
Jungle, Higher, can’t buy happiness, brain flower, more than I should, electric feel, Featherstone, hiding under the cover.
EP NOTION- NOTION, SYNERGY, GEMINI, BIG SMOKE
FLOW STATE-MYSTIK, MURDER TO MIND, FREE MIND, CIGARETTE, PINK MOON, HARVEST LOVE, BLACKBIRD, SALVATION, MELLOW MARMALADE, SEED, SEVEN, BIG SMOKE, OUTRO, MYSTIC, PINK.
Tash Sultana work is admirable because she didn’t go to any music academy and most importantly she is a self-taught artist which makes her peculiar. I recommend the song “jungle” and “notion” the most. I hope Tash gets more success in her life and give her the best music ahead.
