TASH SULTANA delivered a powerful sold-out show this past Wednesday (September 25) at the iconic venue Red Rocks in Morrison, Colorado, building on her growing stature as one of the world's most electrifying performers.
 
Packed with one highlight after another, among them "Big Smoke," "Free Mind," "Synergy" and "Jungle," the concert was recorded and filmed for a future live project. The day was captured on film to give a behind-the-scenes look into the multi-instrumentalist and global sensation's largest American headlining show to date. Leading the film crew was TASH's own touring videographer Dara Munnis.

"I feel like this is a closing ceremony for this chapter of my life which has been years in the making," said TASH a few days before the show. "I'm happy to be able to document what we have achieved from a live perspective and show everyone the hard work that's gone into these shows the past few years. It's going to be a hell of night."

The Red Rocks show was part of TASH's critically acclaimed fall 2019 tour that has included a recent stop at the Central Park Summerstage (New York), along with an upcoming slot this Friday (September 27) at the Ohana Festival (Los Angeles). These dates mark the largest headlining gigs in TASH's career and come after a few spring shows in the U.S., followed by solo performances at 10,000-seat venues and festival appearances this summer in Europe.
 
Last year was one of the biggest years in TASH's career. Highlights include the release of her debut album FLOW STATE (Mom and Pop Music) which entered the charts at #4 on the Billboard Alternative Albums Chart and also charted across the globe. FLOW STATE was also nominated for the prestigious Triple J Australian Album of the Year award and six ARIA's (The Australian Recording Industry Association Music Awards). Other recent accolades include over half a billion streams worldwide; the certified platinum singles "Jungle" and "Notion"; the certified Gold (internationally) Notion (EP) and the singles "Mystik" and "Murder To The Mind"; and record-breaking attendance at live shows around the world.
 
For those who have not yet experienced TASH live, TASH recently revealed "The Story So Far," a three-part documentary series in partnership with YouTube Music that shows the journey from bedroom performances and busking to sold-out world tours. Check out the first two episodes now on TASH's channel here and here, with a third to follow.

TASH's shows continue to garner many critical accolades. Here are pull quotes from some recent shows:
 
"Tash Sultana left the audience in awe..."
--BILLBOARD9/21/19
 
"Sultana is a frenetic and expressive performer on stage, clearly feeling every chord with their body as they play."
 
"When looped, Sultana's cascading licks crash into thunderous, electrifying waves."
--LAS VEGAS WEEKLY9/23/19
 
"If a musician could ever be described as performing with every fiber of their being, Sultana would be it...Sultana's voice was astounding, rising up to rafter-shattering cries, and recalling Billie Holiday's soulful tone during the more intimate moments. There was beatboxing, and there was beatboxing in a pan flute."
--JOURNAL SENTINEL, (Milwaukee, WI), 9/11/19
"To see Tash Sultana perform is to enter into a certain indescribable atmosphere."--LIVE FOR LIVE MUSIC, (New York City, NY), 9/5/19 
"A straight-up guitar-goddess, Sultana tore through much of her set like Jimi Hendrix's spiritual offspring, always lost in the music and never anything less than elated to be making it. She made it very clear very quickly that her guitar was her partner up there, and their chemistry throughout the night was palpable bordering on overwhelming."
--Timothy Patrick Boyer, THROUGH DIGITAL EYES, (Providence, RI), 9/4/19
 
"Tash Sultana is a Melbourne-based multi-instrumentalist who uses loop pedals with such deft dexterity it can often seem like witchcraft...blends reggae rhythms, orchestral rock sounds, and mind-searing solos with a vocal timbre and delivery that is unmistakable for anyone else.
--DONYC, 9/12/19
 
"...sensationally unique experience."
--Miranda Lipton, THE LANTERN, (Columbus, Ohio), 9/8/19
