International sensation Tash Sultana reveals a brand new single, ‘Mystik’ released via Sony Columbia. The Australian singer recently made her US TV debut, on Late Night with Seth Meyer - watch her performance of ‘Jungle’ here. Tash returns to the UK later this month, playing a sold out show at the Shepherd's Bush Empire on October 29.
'Mystik' was written recently in Tash’s home studio whilst on a break from touring the globe for the last 18 months. Once again Tash played every instrument on the recording, with the addition of a new saxophone she picked up and learnt to play a week before recording. The song was tracked and mixed with ‘Notion EP’ engineer Nikita Miltiadou at Melbourne’s own Smooch studios. The single will feature on Tash’s highly anticipated debut record due in 2018.
“I had a mental block for f***ing ages, then one day in my studio I woke up jet-lagged at 5am and this just fell out of my finger tips” – Tash Sultana
To date Tash has amassed tens of millions of streams online, landed at #3 in triple j’s Hottest 100 with ‘Jungle’ - which is now at platinum sales in Australia, top ten ARIA chart with ‘Notion EP’ which then stayed in the chart for 6 months, topped the iTunes charts in multiple countries, sold out theatre shows worldwide, graced major festival stages around the globe, even picked up a j award in 2016 along the way!
She recently took the #1 spot on US Billboard’s Next Big Sound chart, and appears on Late Night With Seth Myers on October 2.

NIGHT THINKER EP TRACKLISTING:
Actress and singer Lea Michele will play a one off show at Shoreditch Town Hall, London on Friday 21st April
The intimate show will see her preview tracks from her new album ‘Places’ which is out 28th April. Tickets can be purchased here: http://leamichele.com/2017
Lea has also launched the preorder for the 11 track album, which features the previously released “Love Is Alive” and her powerful new song “Anything’s Possible,” which USA TODAY says is an “anthem that’s ready to inspire.” Lea recently performed “Love Is Alive” on The Late Late Show with James Corden and also appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
“When it came time to name my album, I settled on ‘Places’ because this album for me represents a return to form, a return to the stage, and a return to the place I belong,” Lea says. “When you perform on Broadway the word “Places” is the last thing you hear over the loudspeaker before a show is about to begin. “Places” I thought was the perfect title for this music and how it reflects who I am as an artist today and where I come from.”
In 2009 Lea Michele debuted in her role as perfectionist firecracker “Rachel Berry” on Ryan Murphy’s critically acclaimed, Golden Globe- and SAG Award-winning series, “Glee.” In 2010, Michele was honoured with an Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series and a Golden Globe nomination for Best Television Actress – Comedy. That same year, the “Glee” cast won the SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series, among other awards.
She can currently be seen on Fox as Hester in the dark Ryan Murphy comedy “Scream Queens.” She also received raved reviews for her stage performance in the role of “Wendla” for the Tony Award-winning Broadway production of “Spring Awakening,” which earned her a Drama Desk Award nomination for Outstanding Actress in a Musical. While appearing on television and stage, Michele’s love for music has been a focus point in her career. In March of 2014, she released her album, “Louder,” which debuted at No. 1 on iTunes and in the Top 5 on Billboard charts. Her follow up album “Places” will be available April 28th.
Australian singer-songwriter Gretta Ray today releases her brand new single 'Drive' in the UK. The finely crafted, hook-laden track was co-produced with Nashville based Australian Josh Barber (Goyte, Archie Roach) and award winning composer Jonathan Dreyfus. Gretta won triple j's 'Unearthed High' competition in 2016 and subsequently saw 'Drive' reach #27 in triple j's 'Hottest 100' last year - the highest debut by any 'Unearthed High' artist in history. You can listen to 'Drive' HERE.
Described by Beat Magazine (AUS) as 'the new face of Australian songwriting', Gretta displays a talent far beyond her years, influenced in part by growing up on a musical diet of artists such as James Taylor & Joni Mitchell. Aside from her success with triple j, 'Drive' also won the 18-year-old the Vanda & Young Songwriting Competition at the tail end of last year - an amazing feat considering Gretta only released her debut EP 'Elsewhere' at the beginning of 2016.
