Mickey Pye is a 25 year old Australian country artist from the small town of Oberon in NSW. Having toured extensively as a guitarist for some of Australia’s biggest country acts including Beccy Cole, Tania Kernaghan, Travis Collins and Jayne Denham, Mickey is a well respected musician in the industry and one of the most exciting young artists coming through the ranks.
Mickey grew up on a property with the typical rural lifestyle of horses, trucks and rodeo, and learned to play guitar from sitting in at campfire sing-along’s with musicians in the Orange Trail Riding club.
After cutting his teeth playing in pub bands throughout the central west as a teenager, Mickey moved to Sydney after finishing high school where he completed a bachelor of Popular Music and Performance at the JMC Academy. Awarded three consecutive scholarships, Mickey graduated with the Academy’s highest regarded award, the Elizabeth Cass Award, recognizing the highest achieving student across all courses.
After graduating, Mickey moved home to the country where he established Bathurst Academy of Music, a contemporary music school which has become one of the most popular tuition centres in the central west. Mickey began working as a freelance guitarist in the Australian country music scene, playing for a long list of artists including Jayne Denham, Chelsea Basham, Kaylee Bell, Amber Lawrence, Christie Lamb and Tori Darke, before becoming a regular member of Travis Collins’ touring band, as well as Tania Kernaghan’s , and most recently, Beccy Cole’s band.
Mickey first struck the industry's eye as an artist when he won the Gympie Muster’s Maton Talent Search in 2009. Since then, Mickey has played some of the biggest stages in the Australia and Canada, and has developed a large following. Clocking up over 150 gigs a year, Mickey is one of the hardest working live performers in the scene, and the industry looks forward to the release of his debut album, soon to come.
