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 re-
popularize classic pop standards for a modern-day audience. 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 and been played at thousands of weddings, including Chelsea Clinton’s!
As an artist, all 9 of his American Standards albums have achieved top 5 status on Billboard’s
Jazz charts. His first album, A New Standard, was amongst the best selling jazz albums for
more than 5 years. Steve’s latest album, That Lovin’ Feeling, 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, 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.
Steve has had the pleasure of singing for Heads of State, including Presidents Bush and
Clinton. 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.
Tyrell’s work in the studio as a record producer has included collaborations with such diverse and
legendary artists as Rod Stewart, Diana Ross, Ray Charles, Linda Ronstadt, Aaron Neville,
Bonnie Raitt, Blood Sweat and Tears, Mary J Blige, Chris Botti, Dave Koz, Dolly Parton, Smokey
Robinson, Burt Bacharach, Bette Midler, and Stevie Wonder, among many others. He produced
Woody Allen’s classic comedy album, Woody Allen – Stand Up Comic, as well as an album with
the late Andy Griffith, which won the Grammy in 1995 for Gospel Album of the Year.
As a music supervisor and music producer for film and TV, Tyrell has worked with such
distinguished directors as Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks, Nancy Meyers, Steven Soderbergh,
Charles Shyer, and Hugh Wilson. His song, How Do You Talk To An Angel, written and produced
for Aaron Spelling’s Fox television series The Heights, was a No. 1 hit on Billboards Top 100 Pop
