NEWBERRY — Steve Tyrell is everywhere these days. He kicks off the 2012-13 season at the Newberry Opera House Sunday at 7 p.m.
Tyrell will be coming straight from the Blue Note in New York City, but his reach is actually much farther. Recently the crew of the Space Station was awakened by the song On the Sunny Side of the Street, performed by Tyrell.
The talented and charming Tyrell lends his suave approach to reinventing classic pop standards. This Renaissance man has collaborated as a music producer, arranger, recording supervisor, songwriter, and performer. He is a true romantic. Ever since his breakthrough performance in “Father of the Bride,” audiences all from all over have fallen in love with this guy!
Tyrell reinvented and re-popularized classic pop for a modern-day audience. He has sold hundreds of thousands of albums and gained a passionate following all over the world. His hits include The Way You Look Tonight, A Kiss to Build a Dream On, and Sunny Side of the Street, The Look of Love, Close To You, A House is Not a Home and Alfie. For Steve Tyrell, they represent milestones in a distinguished career and the joys and pains of his own personal life.
Every recording artist has one album that they are destined to make.
For Tyrell, the distinguished Grammy winner and Emmy nominated purveyor of pop standards, as well as a behind scenes impresario. That album is Back to Bacharach, a deeply personal collection of songs from the piano of Burt Bacharach and the pen of Hal David.
He will be highlighting these masterpieces in Newberry.
