With his breakthrough performance in "Father of the Bride" Steve Tyrell reinvented and re-popularized classic pop standards for a modern-day audience. Nine albums later, Tyrell is one of the main contemporary purveyors of standards on the pop and jazz landscape.
Everything Mr. Tyrell sings has an undertone of aw-shucks cool. That quality is embedded in his New Orleans-inflected growl, which conjures good times and high times by way of Dr. John but also reminiscent of Burt Bacharach, Tony Bennett, Bobby Darin, and Dean Martin.
"His sizable voice filters Louis Armstrong through Ray Charles and Dr. John." - NY Times
