Steven Tyler as Nim
Voiced By Steven Tyler
STEVEN TYLER (Nim Galuu), is the iconic songwriter and voice of Aerosmith, America’s greatest rock ‘n’ roll band. 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 150 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. In 2013 Steven will be awarded with the Founder’s Award at the ASCAP Pop Awards as well as be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
Last year, Aerosmith unleashed its acclaimed 15th studio album, Music From Another Dimension, and triumphed with two North American legs of the Global Warming Tour. In 2013 Aerosmith has plans to take their Global Warming Tour worldwide.
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" (featuring Nicole Scherzinger), which broke into the Billboard Hot 100, the highest charting song by an Aerosmith member since 2001’s "Jaded."
On the health and wellness front, when the Demon of Screamin’ injured his vocal cords in 2006, he turned to the world-renowned surgeon Dr. Stephen M. Zeitels. Tyler now sits on the Advisory Board of the Voice Health Institute alongside Julie Andrews, Joe Buck, Roger Daltrey, Christina Perri, Lionel Richie, Paul Stanley and Keith Urban.
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 featured a whole line of rock n’ roll clothing in 2012. Furthering his presence in the fashion world, Tyler has teamed up with Modo Eyewear for his own featured line of reading and sunglasses.
