Get yourself in the mood for love with Grammy-winning Swing vocalist Steve Tyrell, familiar to fans for re-popularising jazz standards such as ‘The Way You Look Tonight’ and ‘Give Me The Simple Life’ that were featured in the comedy Father of the Bride and its sequel Father of the Bride 2.
Tyrell has performed to sold-out concerts across America and won rave reviews in London, Tokyo and Moscow. Besides charming audiences with his endearing hits such as ‘Let’s Fall In Love’ and ‘I’ve Got A Crush On You’, Tyrell’s fans in Singapore will be among the first to hear him belt out songs from his new and seventh album – Back to Bacharach, which is scheduled to hit music stores in May 2008.
A personal tribute to his musical mentors – influential composer Burt Bacharach and lyricist Hal David – Back to Bacharach features stellar collaborations with good friends and music legends such as Rod Stewart, James Taylor, Patti Austin and Bacharach himself. Relive golden moments as Tyrell spoils you with unforgettable tunes such as ‘Walk On By’, ‘The Look of Love’, the classic ‘What The World Needs Now is Love’, perhaps more relevant today than ever, and the Oscar-winning ‘Raindrops Keep Fallin’ On My Head’.
Says Tyrell: “The music of my friends Burt and Hal has been a lifelong collaboration. Their songs are my songs… And I am honored to share it with the world …my way.”
With four decades of experience in the music business under his belt, Tyrell has written and produced Emmy-nominated songs for films and various television series. Tyrell is also a hit producer for music heavyweights from Rod Stewart to LL Cool J and Diana Ross. With all six of his previous albums achieving top 10 status in the American Billboard Jazz Charts, Tyrell has lots of soul to give.
