DOWN TO EARTH
Down to Earth is a video series by filmmaker Jared Abdul-Rahman highlighting emerging Tasmanian artists performing raw, stripped-back versions of their music in intimate settings.
Asta loves to compose her own songs purely because she finds it a stimulating task and a calm release of whatever she's feeling at the time. Her voice has a gentle huskiness that defies her youth. At only eighteen, this singer-songwriter is but a tadpole, fresh faced and about to record her first EP. She picked up the guitar four years ago and loves the way it simply accompanies her voice.
Asta's storytelling takes her audience on an intimate journey, grasping on stories other people have told or touching on her own life experiences. Her songs are mostly acoustic though she is beginning to dip her toes in the electro/pop genre after collaborating with Cal Young from The Scientists of Modern Music.
"I thought I was a tough girl and could manage being home alone once my Mum jetted off to Fiji for a month. But no, I was so scared of the little creeks and rattles; I'm glad she's back."
