Tash, a Native American musician hails from the Navajo Nation, Black Mesa area. She is of the Bitter Water Clan and began her musical sojourn at the age of sixteen. Tash was born and raised on the Navajo Nation, and growing up there has left a life-long impact on her perception rooted in Native logic, as she weaves in and out of Indigenous tradition and Western cultures. Her debut CD “So It Is” consists of stories that connect with many indigenous peoples, which reflect her personal struggles and triumphs.
Tash entertains a variety of audiences with her passionate canyon like chants/vocals and 12-string guitar picking that spreads the message that resonates through her poetry. Her Native and contemporary themes emphasize respect and healing within ourselves, other people, and our surroundings.
She gives a lot of credit in her songwriting along with her other many other creative endeavors to her grandparents up on Big Mountain/Black Mountain for shaping her values as a human being. Her grandparents, her mother and the majority of her family took the time to teach her Native roots and how to care for herself no matter what world she is sharing.
Tash never realized the impact art has on other people until she actually learned to play music and be a part of various theatric and entertainment movements. She particularly enjoys playing to Native audiences from different tribes because there is a juxtaposition in many of her themes that Indigenous people can relate to.
Tash has performed in shows featuring Aaron White, Bill Miller, Geraldine Barney, Vincent Craig, Chaka Kahn, Bo Didley, Razzy Bailey, Charley Daniels, Buffy Saint Marie, and countless others throughout the years.
Tash has had a socially conscious career supporting fundraisers including International Peace Day, Mother Earth Gatherings, Native American events, and more. She continually offers her music for causes that are important to her. She has been outspoken for Native American, women and Deaf Culture rights and feels that she lives by example.
