Steven Tyler, the iconic songwriter and voice of Aerosmith, America's greatest rock ‘n' roll band, has signed an exclusive administration deal with ole which encompasses his co-writes on Aerosmith's fifteenth studio album, Music From Another Dimension, and four other songs from his catalog entitled "Love Lives," the theme song for the Japanese feature film Space Battleship Yamato; "(It) Feels So Good," which broke into the Billboard Hot 100 in 2011, the highest charting song by an Aerosmith member since 2001's "Jaded"; and the songs "Devil's Got a New Disguise," and "Sedona Sunrise" from Aerosmith's 2006 greatest hits compilation, Devil's Got a New Disguise: The Very Best of Aerosmith.
Tyler is considered one of music's most recognizable and dynamic frontmen and has been cited by Rolling Stone as "one of the greatest singers of all time." Further solidifying their place in history, Tyler and Aerosmith have sold more than 100 million records worldwide, won numerous prestigious awards (including multiple Grammys, American Music Awards, Billboard awards, and MTV awards) and were inducted into the Rock ‘n' Roll Hall of Fame in 2001. Aerosmith will release Music From Another Dimension, their first studio album since 2004's Honkin' on Bobo, later this year on Columbia Records.
The ultimate "brand man," Tyler has built a name for himself outside of his career in music. Since 2007, Tyler has been hard at work with inventor and engineer Mark Dirico developing and designing a hip brand of motorcycles called Dirico Motorcycles. In December 2010, he performed for President Obama and the First Lady in a special tribute to Sir Paul McCartney at the Kennedy Center Honors. Just a month later, Tyler joined Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson, and host Ryan Seacrest as a judge on American Idol, the highest rated television show in American history. In May 2011, Tyler released his memoir entitled Does the Noise in My Head Bother You? (Ecco/Harper Collins) which debuted at #2 on the New York Times Bestseller List. Simultaneous with the book's release, Tyler debuted his first ever solo single, "(It) Feels So Good." Infamous for his outrageous style and fashion savoir-faire, Tyler was also the inspiration and design consultant for the Andrew Charles rocker chic fashion line from Tommy Hilfiger's Star Brands which features a whole line of rock n' roll clothing. Furthering his presence in the fashion world, Tyler is teaming up with Modo Eyewear for his own featured line of sunglasses. 2013 will see the release of Epic, a new animated film from Twentieth Century Fox Animation (Ice Age, Rio), where Tyler lends his voice to the character Nim Galuu. The voice cast of Epic also includes Beyoncé, Colin Farrell, Josh Hutcherson, Amanda Seyfried and Johnny Knoxville.
