There are two artists with this name: one from the USA another from the UK.

1. Stephen Valentine Patrick William “Steve” Allen (26 December 1921 – 30 October 2000) was an American television personality, musician, actor, comedian, and writer.

Though he got his start in radio, Allen is best-known for his television career. He first gained national attention as a guest host on Arthur Godfrey’s Talent Scouts. He graduated to become the first host of The Tonight Show, where he was instrumental in innovating the concept of the television talk show. Thereafter, he hosted numerous game and variety shows, including The Steve Allen Show, I’ve Got a Secret, The New Steve Allen Show, and was a regular panel member on CBS’ What’s My Line?

Allen was a “creditable” pianist, and a prolific composer, having penned over 14,000 songs, one of which was recorded by Perry Como and Margaret Whiting, others by Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gorme, Les Brown, and Gloria Lynne. Allen won a award in 1963 for best Jazz composition, with a song co-written by Ray Brown: The Gravy Waltz. Allen wrote more than 50 books and has two stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

2. A trance musician from the United Kingdom.
