Steve Tyrell at Newberry Opera House, Newberry, SC
Steve Tyrell knows toe-tapping sophistication. With a confident swagger and billion-dollar pearly white smile, this silver fox with entertain, charm and beguile with his repository of soulful, delicate tunes. He plays his own original material, as well as the internationally recognized jazz standards, fronting the band like a true virtuoso.
Tyrell first made his name as a big-cheese producer, as head of artists and repertoire at Scepter Records in mid-town Manhattan. He worked with the likes of Burt Bacharach and Hal David, making them recognizable stars. He’s the hidden talent behind Bacharach-David classic, ‘Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head’. Since embarking upon his own solo career, he’s achieved great success and recognition, consecutively topping the jazz charts with his seven albums of versions of Sinatra and Disney standards. His live shows are electric, at once soothing and engaging. The modulating tones of his voice, ranging from soft crooning, to punchy, bawdy breakdowns are fitting to any arena, from small intimate barrooms to the decadence of a Las Vegas. He’ll reel through an entire set list without a falter or a sweat.
