Hailed by NBC News for for his ability to, “...make the guitar sing like it was invented only to be in his hands,” native Oregonian Tye Austin (Age 28) is an international award-winning classical guitarist and composer based in New York City. He has debuted solo at Carnegie Hall, London's Royal Albert Hall, the United Nations, the US French Embassy, and he's been featured in Psychology Today, The Boston Guardian, and live on National Public Radio. Tye plays a wide range of musical genres from classical to flamenco, Latin jazz and contemporary pop. He gained profound insight while studying flamenco and Spanish classical guitar music with David Martinez and Adrian Ruis in Granada and Villa-Real, Spain, where Tye visited the historical monuments and childhood homes of his favorite Spanish composers. As a prodigious composer/arranger with over fifty original works to his name, Tye is also dedicated to expanding the classical guitar repertoire. The 2017-18 concert season will see him compose and perform new music for classical guitar and the Hunter Science Preparatory College String Orchestra at Lincoln Center as resident composer and guitarist, and live in concert at the University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth as visiting artist and lecturer. His fundamental music studies began at Southern Oregon University in 2008, and he received his Master of Music degree from the New England Conservatory in 2016, where he studied with legendary maestro Eliot Fisk (the last student of Andres Segovia). Tye plays a custom-made 2015 Steve Connor Guitar from Cape Cod, MA. In his spare-time, he enjoys meditating, reading in solitude, and riding his bike through Central Park.

He is available for formal concerts, luxury events, weddings, corporate parties, and composition/arranging/songwriting projects. In addition to solo guitar performance, he also performs with a:

Guitar Duo
Violin and Guitar Duo
Flute/Sax/Clarinet and Guitar Duo

Violin, Cello, and Guitar Trio

The experience, from initial contact through the close of the evening, was all excellent. Tye performed Spanish classical guitar for a cocktail reception before a birthday party, and his playing added to specialness of the evening. I would highly recommend Tye.

I booked Tye for a friend's engagement party over the weekend and could not be more pleased. He is incredibly talented and set the ambience of evening. He's incredibly quick to respond and arrived promptly and was a delight to speak with after his scheduled time. I would definitely book him for another event.
