A gruff, gabby charmer who has amassed a loyal following, Mr. Tyrell has the gnarly lived-in voice of an itinerant roustabout familiar with New Orleans blues traditions.
—New York Times
Ever since his big break as a performer, when his lilting rendition of ‘The Way You Look Tonight’ featured prominently in the 1991 hit film Father of the Bride, Tyrell has remained a spellbinder, unwaveringly consistent in his straight-ahead, embellishment-free readings.
Grammy Award–winning producer and vocalist Steve Tyrell is the definition of a Renaissance man. In his nearly five decades in the music business, he has achieved success as a singer, songwriter, producer, music supervisor, and most recently, radio host.
His breakthrough performances in Father of the Bride and Father of the Bride II helped Tyrell reinvent and repopularize classic pop standards for a modern-day audience. His hits, “The Way You Look Tonight,” “The Simple Life,” “I’ve Got a Crush on You,” and “On the Sunny Side of the Street,” have launched millions of romances and have been played at thousands of weddings, including Chelsea Clinton’s!
As an artist, all nine of his American Standards albums have achieved top-five status on Billboard’s jazz charts. His first album, A New Standard, was among the best-selling jazz albums for more than five years. Tyrell’s latest album, That Lovin’ Feeling, debuted in the top five. On it, he celebrates what he calls the Great American Songbook 2, featuring seminal rock-era classics penned by legendary songwriters, including Carole King, Burt Bacharach, Neil Sedaka, Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil, and Mike Stoller and Jerry Leiber, among others.
