AWARDED GIGMASTERS BEST OF 2017 - INTERNATIONAL AWARD-WINNING CLASSICAL GUITARIST & COMPOSER

Hailed by NBC News for making "...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. Within a decade of picking up the instrument, he has performed solo at Carnegie Hall, London's Royal Albert Hall, the United Nations, US French Embassy, and many other prestigious venues. He's been interviewed by NBC News, NPR, The Boston Guardian, and Psychology Today. Tye plays a wide range of music from classical to flamenco, latin, jazz, and classic rock/Top40 pop arrangements. With over fifty original works and multiple commissions to his name, Tye is also a prodigious composer/arranger dedicated to expanding the guitar repertoire. In addition to his solo guitar work, Tye frequently collaborates with the New York Virtuosi String Quartet and his self-titled Latin jazz trio, where he sings in multiple languages while playing guitar. He received his Master of Music degree from the New England Conservatory, where he studied with maestro Andres Segovia's last direct pupil, Eliot Fisk. Tye also holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in classical guitar performance and music composition from the Oregon Center for the Arts at Southern Oregon University. He also studied flamenco guitar performance for a summer in Granada, Spain. His debut EP, Andalusia: Spanish Guitar Music, was independently released on December, 2017. In his spare time, he enjoys cooking, reading in solitude, and riding his bike through Central Park.

Tye is available for formal and house concerts, luxury events, cruises, weddings, corporate parties, composition/arranging/songwriting projects, and more. In addition to solo guitar, you may book his violin/guitar duo, cello/guitar duo, Latin jazz trio, and/or guitar and string quartet. You may also inquire about booking Tye's 10-25 piece string orchestra for your event. For more information, visit *******.***

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.
