Tash Sultana has had one fantastic year. The former busker has gone from playing to the pedestrians of Melbourne to sold-out tours both locally and abroad, and her hot streak continues with the news that she’s sold out her upcoming U.S. tour – over a month in advance.

It’s no surprise that Tash is looking good for her U.S. push, though; she had a sold-out run of shows in Europe earlier in the year, and America is next in her sights. It’ll help her chances that Unified CEO Jaddan Comerford has come on board to join her management team of Regan Lethbridge and David Morganin from Lemon Tree Management in promoting her in the territory.

“It’s great to be able to announce these dates as SOLD OUT over a month out from the first date,” Comerford told The Music. “What a way to start 2017. And all this without any label support in the territory.

He stresses that this early taste of U.S. success comes off the back of her incredible year so far and own self-promotion, rather than any sort of label push – that’s yet to come.

“This is just the beginning of what is going to be a huge year for this amazing artist.”

The tour sees Tash kick things off in Boston and moving through NY, Philly and DC before hopping coasts to finish the tour off in LA, San Fran, Portland and Seattle, with frequent tour-mate Josh Cashman in support. Not a bad run by any stretch and, while these venues aren’t stadiums just yet, we know it’s just the start for an artist who has already proven herself as a festival mainstay at home.

Let’s just hope nobody loses her baggage on the way over.
