If you haven’t yet heard of Tash Sultana, go get some shoes with plenty of cushioning, because you’re about to jump on the bandwagon. The Melbourne-based singer, songwriter, and busker is blowing up right now.

In just the last 24 hours, the talented local muso has sold out her third Sydney show at Brighton Up Bar in record time, in addition to selling out three shows at Melbourne’s Northcote Social Club.

That’s no mean feat on its own, but what’s even more remarkable is that Tash’s latest performance video was shared on Thursday afternoon and it’s managed to rack up a million views in less than five days.

Make no mistake, she’s generating serious buzz at the moment. She’s had 12,000 new Facebook likes and counting since Thursday and she’s currently sitting in the Top 30 of the alternative chart on iTunes.

That’s not bad for a fully independent Melbourne artist. Tash Sultana’s latest single, ‘Gemini’, dropped on Friday (check it out below) and she’s well on her way to selling out her upcoming tour. Check Facebook for more info.
