About Eddie

How it Happened

"Tuning Spirits got started from a garage full of music equipment and not enough hands to play them..... It was then decided that students were needed to keep great music alive and thus The School That was rocking came about."


Eddie Austin is a graduate of the Berklee College of Music in Boston Mass., receiving a Bachelors degree in professional music with focus in contemporary writing and production. Since graduating he has performed many places all over the country. From Boston to LA, he has gained a wide range of experience in the entertainment and music industry.

Upon moving home to the great state of Texas, he created the band Eddie Austin and the Texas Silhouettes and has been performing all over the Basin area.

Eddie's love for music extends past just himself and into our youth. Eddie has been teaching general music to the 5th graders of our community for 5 years. He along with associate Billy Daves, established Tuning Spirits during the summer months teaching contemporary instruments such as guitar, bass, keyboard, and drums.

These kids (ages 10 – 13) were given the chance to showcase their teachings and talents in an event hosted by Eddie Austin and the Train Car Cigar Bar in downtown Big Spring. You can bet it was a lot of fun. Eddie will continue to dedicate his time and efforts into the arts.

Eddie Austin is also an aspiring artist, writing his own original music for your listening pleasure! Please check out Eddie Austin on Spotify, ITunes, Reverbnation, and YouTube.
