GRAMMY-winning vocalist Steve Tyrell is truly a Renaissance man. In over four decades in the music business, he has achieved great success as an artist, producer, songwriter, music supervisor, and performer. With his breakthrough performances in the films Father of the Bride and Father of the Bride, Part II, Tyrell reinvented and repopularized classic pop standards for a modern-day audience. With the grit and soul of a lifetime of experiences, producing hits from GRAMMY-winning artists ranging from Linda Ronstadt and Aaron Neville to Rod Stewart and Diana Ross, Tyrell himself has sold hundreds of thousands of albums and gained a passionate following all over the world. His hits “The Way You Look Tonight,” “The Simple Life,” “Crush on You,” and “The Sunny Side of the Street” have launched thousands of weddings and millions of romances.
As an artist, all nine of his American Standards albums have achieved Top 10 status on Billboard’s Jazz Charts, seven of which have achieved Top 5, and his first album, A New Standard, was among the best-selling jazz albums for over five years. As a music supervisor and producer for film and television, Tyrell has worked with Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks, Nancy Meyers, Steven Soderbergh, Hugh Wilson, and Charles Shyer. His songs have been recorded by artists such as Ray Charles, Diana Ross, LL Cool J, and Elvis Presley. Aside from being a GRAMMY winner, Tyrell has earned two Emmy nominations and received a Daytime Emmy Award, three Ace Nominations, the American Society of Young Musician’s “All That Jazz Award” (2004), the Wellness Community’s “Human Spirit Award” (2004), the Society of Singers’ “Lifetime Achievement Award” (2006), and the Los Angeles Jazz Society’s “Jazz Vocalist of the Year” award (2008).
