The year 2014 has been a game changer for Tasha both personally and artistically. She appeared on Channel Nine’s hit singing show ‘The Voice’, experiencing the rare achievement of having all 4 of the judges chairs turn in her blind audition. Tasha’s sweet rendition of The Lumineers track ‘Ho Hey’ still remains a favorite amongst viewers and as quoted by Kylie Minogue; “Tasha has clarity and brilliance to her voice” and “a voice you naturally respond to…” and this shows through in her live gigs when you can almost hear a pin drop during certain parts of her performances.
As well as  a schedule of performances,  Tasha is spending much of 2015 writing and recording brand new music. Her new batch of work will no doubt be edgier and more personal than ever!
