About
John Oeth is a classical guitarist sought after for his ability to captivate audiences with his passionate musicianship, dynamic presence, and virtuosic technique. Having won multiple competitions throughout the United States, John brings his interpretations of unique repertoire to the stage.

The San Francisco Giants, NPR, the NCAA, and Intel are among the organizations that have enjoyed John's performances. In 2018, he was honored to perform for United States Senator John McCain's funeral service. He has recently performed in the concert series hosted by arts organizations including the Phoenix Guitar Society, the Paradise Valley Chamber Music Collective, Oh My Ears, and the Pinnacle Concert Series. Successful concerts for the Phoenix Center for the Arts, Music Instrument Museum, and the David Lloyd Wright House have built up John's reputation for making sophisticated art music accessible to audiences of all musical backgrounds. This has led John to unique performance opportunities such as sharing a concert with Billboard Top 100 artist Jordin Sparks. In 2017, Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey invited John to perform for the many U.S. governors and foreign dignitaries of the Western Governors Association.

In addition to his solo playing, John has been a part of outstanding performing ensembles. Together with flutist Karina Nuñez, the Oeth-Nuñez Duo performed throughout Memphis and recorded Francia y Argentina, a collection of French and Argentine music. John has performed as a soloist for the Starkville Symphony Orchestra and the University of Memphis Opera. Alongside guitarist Andrew Lesley Smith, Petrichor Duo has given many notable concerts and premieres. As avid players of accessible new music, Petrichor Duo is a catalyst for new compositions for guitar duo. Composers such as Robert Springer, Kohei Kondo and Zach Jones have written and dedicated works to Petrichor Duo. Their upcoming album Contemporary Works for Guitar Duo is set to be released in 2019.

John is an advocate of 21st century guitar compositions as well as under-performed Renaissance lute and vihuela works. Compositions have been dedicated to him by international artists including Petrichor, a piece gifted by Japanese composer Kohei Kondo. He has premiered and released recording premieres of monumental works like the massive 21-movement Sketchbooks by Michael Karmon. This work is featured on his solo album, Sketches, which is a collection of works by contemporary composers all in the genre of a sketch. John is completing his doctoral dissertation focusing on the lute works of Vincenzo Galilei, Galileo's father. John's upcoming recording 26 Ricercares of Vincenzo Galilei consists of his solo guitar arrangements of Galilei's ricercares in all of the Renaissance modes.

AMAZING! John performed for my wedding ceremony and I could not be more happy. He learned my two requests of 'I Can't Help Falling in Love' and 'A Thousand Years' and played them magnificently. He also played prelude music that was so beautiful and really fit the mood. He was also super friendly and quick to communicate leading up to the wedding.

I hosted a private high-end event in Phoenix. John played fantastically for a crowd of 500+. He worked with the sound crew and put me at ease that everything would be set. Everyone at the event kept commenting that the music was incredible! I will definitely hire John again for my events and wedding!

John was incredible at my wedding. He was super accommodating at every turn, even when we made last minute changes to plans. He was able to do any songs we asked for, and did each of them beautifully. He really injects sole into the music and captures the vibes of The songs. He also played classical pieces with such a high level of mastery and so much emotion. It was an absolutely perfect performance in every respect. He was also super nice and friendly and fun to work with. He took requests live, on the spot. Everyone at the wedding was raving to me and my bride about how amazing the guitarist was; where did we find him!? Highly recommend -10/10

John was absolutely FANTASTIC for my wedding ceremony in Arizona. He played classical acoustic guitar music as well as popular songs by my favorite band - The Beatles. He also played some top 40 songs that I had requested. I will 100 percent book John again in the future. I HIGHLY recommend John to anyone looking for a classy ambiance for their wedding ceremony and cocktail hour.

John was communicative, professional, on time, and a talented musician. He catered to our needs for the event by playing a mix of old and new as requested and it was enjoyed by all 400 guests. I would definitely recommend booking John for your next gig! Nicole B. Political Involvement Coordinator

If there were more than 5 stars, I would give John even more. John performed at my wedding and cocktail hour SPECTACULARLY. So many guests came up to me saying that they absolutely loved the music. With only a ONE day notice, he learned and arranged requests that made my special day so much more personal. I whole heartedly recommend John to play for your wedding or other event. I could not be more happy with hiring him. I even just bought his CD, so I can listen in my car.
