Tasman Keith inherited music. Since first appearing on stage at age eight alongside his pioneering father, Tasman channelled adolescent listlessness into the outlet of hip hop – crammed with six cousins in a makeshift studio at their local youth centre. While he may have been born into music, the sense of surrounding community was the true birthplace of Tasman Keith as an artist.
Determined from a young age to only ever run his own race, imbued with a singular desire to occupy a boundaryless territory of his own, between debut EPs, collaborative mixtapes and wins across triple j and Australian Independent Record Awards, and National Indigenous Music Award nominations, Keith has traversed stages across the country, including a reputation for stealing shows “in all of five minutes” (The Australian) alongside national icons and his contemporaries, Midnight Oil, Jessica Mauboy, Kwame and many more.
