Hailed by NBC News for making “…the guitar sing like it was invented only to be in his hands,” native Oregonian Tye Austin is an international award-winning classical guitarist and composer based in New York City. He has debuted at Carnegie Hall, London’s Royal Albert Hall, Boston State House, and he’s been featured in Psychology Today, The Boston Guardian, and live on National Public Radio. He plays a wide range of musical genres from classical to jazz and contemporary pop. As a prodigious composer/arranger with over fifty original works to his name, Tye is dedicated to expanding the classical guitar repertoire. 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.
