About Vendor 

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

AWARD-WINNING SOLO GUITARIST, COMPOSER, & VOCALIST Hailed by NBC News for making "…the guitar sing like it was invented only to be in his hands," native Oregonian Tye Austin (age 32) is the most important solo guitarist, vocalist, and composer to come out of the Beaver State. Currently based out of his off-grid homestead on the Oregon Coast, Tye is available for all events anywhere in the US. As a classically-trained guitar virtuoso, he is capable of playing any musical genre from flamenco to Bossa nova, jazz, modern pop music and more. In addition to his instrumental repertoire, he can also sing popular songs in English, Spanish, French, and Portuguese while playing guitar. Within a decade of picking up the guitar, Tye has performed solo all over the world at NYC’s Carnegie Hall, London's Royal Albert Hall, Shanghai’s Lidoway, Spain’s Albaicin Theatre, and many other prestigious venues. In October, 2017, he was invited to perform solo for over three-hundred world leaders at the United Nations Headquarters in NYC. One year later, Tye was asked to perform solo for the former Australian Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd, at the Trump World Tower on the UN Plaza. He was also commissioned to compose and perform French renaissance music for guitar and string quartet at the premiere party for the Netflix original series, Versailles, at the US French Embassy in Manhattan. He has won multiple first prizes from international music competitions including the American Protege and the UK Grand Prize Virtuoso. Tye has been interviewed by NBC News, National Public Radio, The Boston Guardian, and Psychology Today. He studied guitar performance with Grammy-winning faculty at the Juilliard School, New England Conservatory, and the Oregon Center for the Arts at Southern Oregon University. For more information, visit www.tyeaustin.com In addition to his solo guitar work, Tye is the founder of Global Virtuosi, an international collective of distinguished musicians available for private events around the globe. You may book a DJ, guitarist, violinist, cellist, harpist, pianist, string quartet, symphonic orchestra, jazz/rock/pop band or any other musical ensemble. We provide background entertainment for weddings, anniversaries, corporate parties, holiday celebrations, cruise ships/yachts, and luxury events. We can perform any musical genre or song request. Feel free to contact Tye for a free consultation today.

Birthday Party (Kids)Reviewed on July 2, 2019From Montville, NJ

Tye Austin did a wonderful job at our daughter's sixth birthday and family summer fest. We heard an excellent classical guitarist, the finest one can imagine, on a patio venue overlooking an enchanting pool and lovely landscape. People carried on their conversations as Tye played in the background. All of it combined -- the friends, the setting, the food, the children, the conversation, the occasion, and most of all, the incredible, soul-touching music, for an unforgetable effect. Tye is moved by the music as he plays and we too felt lifted up with a divine touch at our event. Thank you so much, Tye, for a truly excellent performance.

Cocktail PartyReviewed on November 17, 2017From New York City, NY

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.
