Steve Tyrell is currently celebrating his 14th anniversary performing in Café Carlyle's revered holiday slot, having taken over for Bobby Short in 2005 after the legend's passing.

Ten of his eleven albums have achieved Top 5 status on Billboard's Traditional Pop Charts, with his most recent, A Song For You, reaching #1 earlier this year. In October, Steve Tyrell released a 21-song extended edition of his 2008 chart-topper Back to Bacharach. The album, an homage to Tyrell's friend and mentor, Burt Bacharach, features seven additional Bacharach classics.
