"This is a genuinely true statement: after hurling some pretty hectic abuse towards my guitars and their strings, to this day I have never EVER broken a D'Addario string."
Tash Sultana, the gender fluid multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter, producer and engineer, has been dubbed one of the hardest-working music exports in Australia. Tash began playing the guitar from the age of 3 after being gifted the instrument from their late grandfather. From there Tash began to pick up other instruments such as piano/keyboard/synth, bass, drums/percussion, beat-making/sampling, beatboxing, trumpet, saxophone, flute, mandolin, oud, harmonica, lap steel, panpipes and arranged it into loop style performances along with percussive and finger tapping style guitar playing coinciding with a vocal range stretching 5 octaves.
By the age of 13 Tash was playing at open mic nights up to 6 times a week across Victoria. Tash's refusal to conform to normal society pushed the young artist onto the streets of Melbourne to busk, where they harnessed crowd-stopping performances on Melbourne's famous 'Bourke Street'. From there a viral bedroom recording of 'Jungle' in 2016 skyrocketed the artist off the street and in front of the world. Since then Tash has broken attendance records on non-stop across sold out global arena tours, their accolades rush in faster than there is time to count them. In 2019 alone, Tash sold over half a million tickets across the globe.
