TYCE - HERO
TYCE – HERO
Every so often a new artist comes along with a debut album that not only raises eyebrows, but curiosity in that the songs are so perfectly matched with the talent. In TYCE’s case, with the release of his debut Broadway Records album, HERO (March 10, 2017), his voice is perfectly in sync with the celebratory music and lyrics of noted-Meat Loaf-collaborator Jim Steinman.
No ordinary talent would ever dare to record such treasured songs as “Holding Out For A Hero”, “Total Eclipse Of The Heart”, “I’m Gonna Love Her For Both Of Us”, and “Braver Than We Are”, without the imprimatur of wordsmith Steinman, who was catapulted to international fame and renown with the debut album from Meat Loaf, Bat Out Of Hell.
Tyce is the first male vocalist to have recorded with Steinman since Meat Loaf. Adds Tyce, “I also fit Jim’s original vision of a young blond, honorable, noble-boy that he first had in mind when he wrote Bat Out Of Hell.”
Bravely produced and boldly reimagined by Zak Lloyd (with Tony Heyes as executive producer and Nicky James as producer), with Steinman’s blessing, the album features nine Steinman tracks, plus seven bonus tracks. Don’t be fooled, these tunes perfectly balance Steinman’s original vigor with a twist of modern.
Tyce, who has long been a key player in the Broadway community and recently appeared at last year’s Rockers on Broadway event (performing Boston’s “More Than A Feeling” to a rapturous reception) services Steinman’s work with a bold, fresh take and a passion that immediately demands an audience.
Tyce first met Steinman after honoring him at a special concert in New York City. A surprise performance followed, with Tyce receiving a standing ovation after singing “Bat Out Of Hell” in its 9-minute, 51-second entirety in the original key: the first time the song was ever officially performed live since the Meat Loaf rendition. From there, it was kismet and a new interpreter of Steinman was born and reborn, for Jim.
Steinman called Tyce’s performance “brilliantly virtuosic!!” and terms Tyce’s performance on the album: “It was like you wrestled with a fire-breathing dragon and came out on top!!!”
Review on TMW (themacwire.com):
“He’s poised and elegant onstage – visibly moved by both the music and lyrics. He was simply sensational. On Hero’s second CD, there’s seven tracks of just him acoustically and they’re just brilliant.” – GH Harding

About Tyce (Tyce Green)
Tyce completed an engagement at the popular New York cabaret Feinstein’s/ 54 Below, for which BroadwayWorld hailed, “his rock belting and keen use of head voice leaves the audience whooping, hollering, and applauding his inspired performance.” He also appeared in the New York City premiere of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Whistle Down the Wind. Tyce works closely with Grammy Award-winning composer Jim Steinman and has been called the “new voice” of Steinman music. He tours regularly, singing from the Bat Out of Hell albums.
In addition to concert work, Tyce is an award-winning actor, having appeared in numerous stage productions both in NYC and around the country. He made his NYC stage debut Off-Broadway in Kissless. Since then he has appeared in: Spring Awakening — “his energy and body language surge across the stage like a tornado, and they etch an indelible portrait,” Hands on a Hardbody – “he left the audience both spellbound by the impeccable performance and with tear-streaked cheeks because of its gut wrenching thematic elements,” Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, Ragtime, The Sound of Music, and more. In film, Tyce starred as Billy in Horrible Turn, a prequel to Dr. Horrible with Neil Patrick Harris.
Along with performing, Tyce is also an avid activist for empowering young actors.
