Tana Douglas is iconic in the music industry, being recognised as the very first female Roadie. As a teenage run away from Brisbane, Tana didn’t join the circus – instead she joined the music industry. An adventure that would take her on a 30 + year journey around the world.
Over her incredible career, she has worked with some of the biggest artists in the world, including AC/DC, Elton John, Santana, Suzi Quatro, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, INXS and Lenny Kravitz.
Tana and her unique position in the music industry have been included in several books – most recently a chapter in Stuart Coupe’s book, Roadies, which confirmed her as the first female roadie. But now it’s time for Tana to tell her story, in her own words. Her Memoir, LOUD, is out now, published through HarperCollins Australia (in both print and audio) and tells of the joys and struggles faced as a girl out on the road on her own in the wild and woolly days that created this industry of music.
Tana currently resides in Los Angeles, California.
