Since they broke through into the Australian music scene more than a decade ago, Tash Sultana has been nothing less than a musical force.
The gender-fluid multi-instrumentalist, producer, singer-songwriter, engineer and entrepreneur has carved out every step in their musical journey over the last 15 years, which has taken them from performing open night mics all over the country, busking the streets of Melbourne to releasing platinum records, accumulating billions of streams, nominations across the globe, to winning awards and selling hundreds of thousands of concert tickets worldwide.
It’s a journey that started humbly. At age 3, Tash was gifted a guitar from their grandfather, a moment which was the catalyst for a lifelong dedication to music and creativity. They practiced and jammed in their bedroom relentlessly, and by the age of 13 Tash was playing open mic nights nearly every night of the week across their home state of Victoria.
Their passion for guitar soon transferred to other instruments, and Tash began to experiment with synths, keyboards, piano, drums, percussion, bass, trumpet, saxophone, flute, mandolin,oud, harmonica, beat boxing, sampling and much more. Tash creates, composes, writes, engineers and produces everything that is heard live, and on record. Tash is the band. Their now-famous busking sessions on Melbourne’s Bourke Street catapulted them into the eyes and ears of music fans everywhere, and a viral video of their early song ‘Jungle’ brought them international attention. Since then, it’s been nothing but a meteoric rise.
Tash is a world away from the artist they were when they were 18. Of course, many of the traits that defined them then are still present: the drive, the curiosity, the endless search for new musical knowledge and desire to share that knowledge with others. But in lots of ways they have changed. Their life now is focused, disciplined, with Tash valuing calm and connectedness. The coming years will see them step out more as an entrepreneur and businessperson, expanding what is becoming a small music industry empire. Tash, as always, is on their own journey.
As Tash puts it simply: “I am happy.”
