“Action without vision is only passing time, vision without action is merely day dreaming, but vision with action can change the world.”
– Nelson Mandela
Steven Tyler is an award-winning singer, songwriter, philanthropist, author and actor. A member of the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame and The Songwriters Hall Of Fame, he has sold more than 150 million records both as solo artist and as a member of the legendary rock band Aerosmith, and has won multiple Grammy Awards, American Music Awards and Billboard Music Awards, plus an Emmy Award and the ASCAP Founders Award. As the lead singer of Aerosmith, Tyler stands as one of the most iconic rock stars in history. During the band’s remarkable career, he has played in front of millions of people and influenced artists from the worlds of rock, hip hop, country music and beyond. He has performed for President Obama, appeared at the Nobel Peace Prize Concert and collaborated with everyone from Taylor Swift to the members of Led Zeppelin. Steven’s debut solo album, 2016’s We’re All Somebody From Somewhere, reached #1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums Chart and #1 on the iTunes Top Country Albums charts in both the US and Canada to rave reviews, with the Boston Globe noting, “Tyler didn’t just parachute into Nashville for a visit, but walked around and breathed the air” and the Associated Press proclaiming “Steven Tyler’s country album shines”. In November 2015, Tyler founded his philanthropic initiative Janie’s Fund (www.JaniesFund.org), in partnership with Youth Villages to bring hope and healing to girls who have suffered the trauma of abuse and neglect. With the support of donors from over 38 countries and many influential friends (Bono, Garth Brooks, Zac Brown, Miley Cyrus, Sir Elton John, Pink, Ryan Seacrest, Britney Spears, Howard Stern, and Carrie Underwood), Janie’s Fund has raised over $2.5 million, directly helping more than 525 girls and providing over 66,000 days of therapeutic care. He is also deeply involved in the fight to protect the rights of established and emerging songwriters as a member of the GRAMMY Creators’ Alliance, and a tireless advocate for raising awareness of addiction issues and recovery solutions.
