I'm an international award-winning solo guitarist and composer currently based in Boston, MA. I play a variety of acoustic guitar styles such as classical, jazz, bossa nova, flamenco, and more. I also have a violin and guitar duo and a string quartet (guitar, violin, viola, cello) available for hire. I can arrange any special song requests. Feel free to contact me anytime about performing at your event!

Bio:
Hailed by NBC News for his ability to, "...make the guitar sing like it was invented to be in his hands,” native Oregonian Tye Austin made his solo-debut at London's Royal Albert Hall after winning first place in the 2016 Grand Prize Virtuoso International Music Competition. He also won first place in the 2013 American Protege International Music Competition at Carnegie Hall. He has performed with Grammy-winning musicians such as Sharon Isbin, Eliot Fisk, and Bela Fleck, and he's been interviewed on National Public Radio. Psychology Today praised the way, "Tye Austin led us (the audience) into a musical embrace," following his debut performance at The Boston Athenaeum. Tye is also an accomplished composer/arranger dedicated to expanding the guitar repertoire. The 2016-17 concert season will see the premiere of new chamber music Tye composed for the Boston Guitar Orchestra and his newly-formed Back Bay String Quartet. Thanks to a generous patronage and private scholarship, Tye graduated from the New England Conservatory with his Master of Music degree under the tutelage of legendary maestro Eliot Fisk (the last student of Andres Segovia). He plays a customized 2015 Steve Connor Guitar from Cape Cod, MA.

Tye was on time, professional, and took into account the type of performance we were hoping for. This event had over 300 guests at MIT and his musical style was the perfect addition to the night!

We hired Tye to play during our holiday event held in our community's club room. We have residents of all ages and from a variety of countries. Tye's guitar playing provided a beautiful background for the event. He is super nice and very professional. We will certainly recommend him to others and hire him again in the future!
