Welcoming Tash Sultana to the Kobalt Family
We couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome the incredible, Australian breakthrough artist Tash Sultana to the Kobalt Family!
A self-taught artist and native of Melbourne, Australia, Tash Sultana is a young, compelling artist who has sold out theatre shows all over the world with no promo months in advance, including her tour of the US and Canada last fall. Her homemade videos have earned tens of millions of views. Sultana’s mastery of over 20 instruments has propelled her hit singles “Jungle” and “Notion” into radio rotation and onto major festival and venue stages around North America, UK and Europe.
In addition, Tash's recent accolades include over 100 million streams worldwide off her debut EP, a top 10 ARIA chart, topping the iTunes chart in multiple countries with the Notion EP, “Jungle” landing at #3 in Triple J’s Hottest 100 countdown and going platinum, a feature in FIFA ‘18, winning the Unearthed J Award, four ARIA awards and an APRA award nomination.
Regan Lethbridge of Lemon Tree Music, said of the deal, “We are thrilled to work with Kobalt on a global level, while staying true to Tash's core values, strong independent beliefs and owning her music. It feels like the right home and we are excited to see where we can take Tash's incredible songs in 2018 and beyond with such a well respected team around the world.”
Simon Moor, Managing Director of Kobalt Music, Australia, said of the deal, “Speaking with Tash early on, it became clear that Tash represented the new paradigm of artist and songwriter, where ownership, creative control, and transparency are paramount. At Kobalt, these are the pillars of the company, and we are honoured to be working with Tash and her management team, Regan Lethbridge, Jaddan Comerford, David Toethuis and David Morgan, providing global administration, synch and creative services.”
We can’t wait to see what incredible ventures come from this partnership. Once again, Tash — welcome to the Kobalt family!
