EDITORS’ NOTES

Melbourne multi-instrumentalist Tash Sultana says a "flow state" is what happens when you’re so connected with what you’re doing that you actually become your art. Sultana's debut album—which the artist wrote, produced, arranged, and played all 15 instruments on—is a lavish, organic mélange of soul (“Cigarettes”), R&B (“Murder to the Mind”), reggae (“Mellow Marmalade”), folk (“Pink Moon”,) and hip-hop, a sound recreated live using loop pedals. For years, Sultana's skills were honed busking on the streets of Melbourne, building a career with the determination heard in the lyrics of “Salvation,” a song about creating your own narrative: “I don’t need you for my own validation.”

Stunning Display of Artistry

2018 has seen the epic rise of one of the newest and freshest talents to grace the music industry. Tash Sultana, an Australian solo artist, has made her debut unto the world with her first and highly anticipated album, Flow State. The album is an adventurous ride where each track is unlike the next. There is a sense of anticipation with each track that leads to quick turns, steady highs, and uncertain drops that are sure to make the mind wander and the heart flutter.

If her inspiration is indeed Erykah Badu, Tash has nailed the sultry, soulful sounds and has made them her own. The album has a little bit for everyone and you are sure to find a song that will not only hit the heart strings, but the ethereal nodes of the brain that very few artists can emulate.

From her sultry voice, to her dashing display of kinetic artistry, Tash Sultana has made a name for herself as one of the greatest solo artists of our time.

Easily the best record created in 2018.

Tash Sultana is one of the greatest musicians of her time. Her ability to make every song different and yet cohesive is something I have never found before. As a one person act, she plays everything live by gradually layering each instrument and then her voice. She is therapeutic, empowering. Cannot get enough of her music.

Soul

This girl speaks to my soul. Her music transcends all the basic radio stuff out there. Nice to see real art in music.
