Biography

Steve & Eydie is the name of an American pop duet, consisting of Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gormé. They have been a husband and wife team since the 1950s. Both have also had separate careers as solo singers. The performer name on their duet releases was denoted as “Steve and Eydie”, without the last names. Eydie was born as Edith Gormezano, while Steve’s birth name was Sidney Leibowitz.

They recorded on various labels including Coral and ABC-Paramount in the 1950s, United Artists, Columbia, and RCA in the 1960s, MGM in the 1970s, and others on to the present. Their last US chart record “Hallelujah”, was shown as Parker and Penny.

Their 1960 song “We Got Us” was not released as a hit single but was the title tune on an ABC-Paramount LP album. It earned them a Grammy Award that year.

In November 2009, Steve Lawrence embarked on a musical tour without Eydie, who stayed home for health reasons. The Steve and Eydie official website confirmed in late 2010 that Eydie is officially retired from touring, due to health reasons, and Lawrence will be touring alone from now on.
