His hits, "The Way You Look Tonight," "The Simple Life," "Crush On You," and "The Sunny Side of The Street," have launched millions of romances. His iconic version of "The Sunny Side of The Street," was even used in outer space to wake up the astronauts.
As an artist, all 9 of his American Standards albums have achieved Top 5 status on Billboard's Jazz charts. His album, The Disney Standards, landed in the Top 10. His first album, A New Standard, was among the best-selling jazz albums for more than 5 years. Steve's latest album, That Lovin' Feeling, also debuted in the Top 5. 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, Carole Bayer Sager, Neil Sedaka, Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil, Mike Stoller and Jerry Leiber, among others. He teamed with Judith Hill of 20 Feet From Stardom, as well as Neil Sedaka, Bill Medley, and B.J. Thomas for duets that put a new spin on their signature songs.
In August 2015, Tyrell added radio host to his long line of credits. Every Monday thru Friday, he can be heard on "The Steve Tyrell Show," from 6PM to 9PM/PT on KJAZZ 88.1 in Los Angeles and online at jazzandblues.org.
With sold out shows across America and raves from around the world, his following increases day by day. Steve has had the pleasure of singing for Heads of State, including Presidents Bush and Clinton, Prime Minister Netanyahu, President Santos of Columbia, and Archbishop Desmond Tutu. In 2014, His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales invited Steve and his band for a command performance at Buckingham Palace.
As for American royalty, the Sinatra family has long embraced Steve and his music. Together with Quincy Jones, they handpicked Steve to be the featured performer with the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra at their season opening concert in which Frank Sinatra was inducted into the Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame. Also at the request of the Sinatra family, he reprised that performance at Carnegie Hall. This was one of the rare times the family has reached into the vault of original Sinatra arrangements to share them with another artist.
Although Steve tours mainly with his band, he also enjoys playing with some of the most renowned orchestras in the world. He has enjoyed multiple performances with The Boston Pops, The New York Pops, The Nashville Symphony, Kansas City Symphony, and The Houston Symphony.
