Natasha “Tash” Sultana is an Australian singer-songwriter and self-taught multi-instrumentalist. She was born and grew up in Melbourne and is currently one of Australia’s fastest rising musicians. Tash is also known as a ‘one-woman band’, she taught herself to play over 10 instruments from the guitar and flute to percussion to saxophones and even beatboxes. Tash started playing instruments at an early age, after her grandfather gave her a guitar at the age of 3. From that she quickly developed her own unique style which entices & draws fans to her.

Tash’s vocals shine with a clear, magical quality, she was a vocalist & guitarist with the MindPilot band along with Patrick O’Brien, David Herbert and Emily Daye. The band went on to win several Battles of the Bands competitions in Melbourne and eventually split in 2012.

When Tash was just 17, her life took a dark turn after she entered a drug-induced psychosis after eating hallucinogenic mushrooms on Pizza at the end of a nationwide tour in Australia with Mindpilot. It took about 9 months of intense music therapy before she made her recovery. When she was unable to get a regular job, Tash turned to busking on the streets of Melbourne, started a Bandcamp page and began making videos of her performances and uploading them to YouTube.

Her big break came in 2016 thanks to the internet, when a live recording of her song “Jungle” went viral on Facebook, accumulating over a million plays in less than a week. By September that year she released her six-track EP Notion and started accepting invitations to play at music festivals. Tash won the J Award for Unearthed Artist of the Year and two tracks from her Notion EP were voted into the Triple J Hottest 100, 2016. Within two years Tash Sultana went from busking in Melbourne’s CBD to selling out international tours in a matter of hours.

In early 2017 Tash signed with New York’s Mom + Pop Music. She sold out Five shows in Melbourne and broke the 7500 attendance record at Margaret Court Arena. In August Tash released her Singe ‘Murder to the Mind’ and in October she released another single “Mystikal”. By the end of 2017

Tash Sultana had sold over 100,000 tickets just in Australia alone. She ended the year with a bang, with four Aria Award nominations, including Breakthrough Artist and Best Blues and Roots Album.

If there’s one thing Tash Sultana has conclusively proved in her career, it’s that she knows how to make music that is creative and authentic. She might not be the most famous guitarist around today, but she is the first Tash Sultana. As her career continues to soar,


Tash says her only goal is to be happy, in her own words “Anything else that comes along will be fine”.

Tash Sultana is currently on a world tour that will take her to over 8 countries including the United States, New Zealand, Germany, Canada and The Netherlands. If you are yet to experience the magic of the One-Woman Powerhouse, you might be lucky to see her live in a city near you.
