1999 Steve Tyrell – A New Standard

A New Standard is an album by vocalist/producer Steve Tyrell, released in 1999.

Raised and sang in Houston, Texas as a teen. Upon moving to New York City at the age of 18, he was made head of A&R and promotion at Scepter Records. There he was mostly behind-the-scenes, producing hits for popular recording artists and movie soundtracks.

At 19 years old he first began producing with the likes of Burt Bacharach and Hal David. He worked on several Dionne Warwick hits such as “The Look of Love” and “Alfie.” Together with B.J. Thomas, he worked on the Bacharach-David song “Raindrops Keep Fallin’ on My Head,” which went on to win the 1969 Oscar for Best Original Song (Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid).
