// Tash Sultana
With a guitar in her hands since the age of three, sixteen year old up and coming Melbourne artist Tash Sultana has tied together her tunes to fill the ears of the listeners.
Still in high school she balances her double life, sitting bored in class and jamming out to venues all over the state at night.
Her music a collaboration of multiple instruments or a ‘one man band’ with her bassy stomp box, blues harmonica, slide guitar and raspy vocals works to serve the crowd and tell her stories through song
