Tash Sultana is a young, dynamic Melbourne artist. At just twenty-one years of age, Tash is creating waves generating massive street buzz and playing sold out shows nationally. Tash has made a name for herself busking on the streets of Melbourne and having homemade videos go viral getting millions of views online.
Since having her hands wrapped around a guitar at the age of three, the self taught artist quickly developed her own unique style that has people lining up to see her perform live. Her vocal shines with a magical quality and she has a natural gift for melody.
Tash’s carefully crafted, edgy fusion of multi-instrumental pieces including beat boxing, unique guitar work and percussion styled finger tapping, has left audiences in awe. The young, one-woman band powerhouse is set for a massive 2016 having already sold out three Melbourne shows and three Sydney shows a month in advance. Brand-new single ’Notion’ was released on June 17, quickly receiving a full add to rotation on national broadcaster triple j.
Tash is thrilled to announce UK, Europe, NZ & Australian tour dates for 2016, taking her show overseas to meet demand.
Every now and then, a local artist emerges who has an undeniable, palpable and infectious momentum, and 21 year-old Josh Cashman definitely fits into that exclusive category. Hailing from Gippsland in Country Victoria, Josh gave up a promising football career to pursue his real passion - music. After relocating to the big city lights of Melbourne, Josh hit the ground running, immersing himself in the local indie music scene, and hasn't looked back since.
Humble by nature, Josh began posting low-fi Facebook videos, skillfully interweaving layers of electronic textures and sublime loops with his acoustic folk originals. Word spread quickly, which saw the unassuming videos often reach thousands of views in 24 hours. Josh took the opportunity to release his first single Running, in July 2015, to a sold-out crowd at Shebeen. He's now amassed over 20,000 fans across all social media platforms, a number which continues to grow daily.
The unstoppable momentum reached new heights in October 2015 when Josh's second single, All About You debuted at #2 on triple j Unearthed's Roots chart, leading to support on the station's Roots n' All program, as well as community radio.
The demand for new music was overwhelming, and Josh headed back into the studio to record his third single Patience. Recorded at Smooch Records, mixed by Matthew Neighbour (Matt Corby, Missy Higgins) and mastered by Adam Dempsey at Deluxe Mastering (Courtney Barnett, Sticky Fingers) the track peaked at #29 on the Spotify US Viral Charts and has been streamed over 170,000 times. It also impressively climbed to #1 on both Unearthed's Rock and Roots charts, and #8 overall.
Word travelled quickly, and Josh signed to Paradigm Talent Agency in the US. Locally, he signed with Onelove Management and Mushroom Publishing.
In August, Josh locked himself away in the studio with lauded producer Jan Skubiszewski (John Butler Trio, The Cat Empire, ILLY). The result is an upcoming EP, mastered by Joe LaPorta at Sterling Sounds (David Bowie, Foo Fighters, The Weeknd). The 5 new tracks evoke a newfound sense of confidence and maturity. The first single Wishful Imagery will be released on September 30, with two accompanying single launches in Melbourne and Sydney.
Packing out venues wherever he goes, thanks to his fiercely loyal fanbase, the gifted self-taught musician has already sold-out revered Melbourne venues including The Worker's Club and Penny Black, as well as a residency at Ding Dong Lounge. In between playing his headline tour dates, Josh has also opened for renowned musicians including Ash Grunwald and Jon Toogood (Shihad).
Having already broken into the Australian festival circuit last year, playing the likes of Queenscliff Music Festival and Nannup Music Festival, Josh is preparing for another heavy summer touring schedule, as well as supporting Tash Sultana on her national tour in October.
"Nothing ever did nor will happen overnight, persistence and timing are everything," says a hard-working Josh. With a work ethic that comes as naturally as his talent, the sky's the limit for a promising, exciting act like Josh Cashman.
