Steven Michael Burns is an American actor, singer, producer, director, and television personality. From 1996 to 2002, he was the original host of the long-running children's preschool television program Blue's Clues, for which he received a Daytime Emmy nomination in 2001.
Steve Burns was born on October 9, 1973, in Boyertown, Pennsylvania. His two older sister's names are Karen and Jennifer. When he was young, he desired to become an actor, so he studied theater at DeSales University in Center Valley. Having a strong will to be an actor, he later discontinued his studies to focus on his acting career and New York City. For his first bit of experience, he received work as a voice artist for marketing advertisements.
Before he was known as the mate to the planning blue pooch on Blue's Clues, singer/songwriter Steve Burns was an underground rock kid. His father made him a toy guitar as a small fellow, and from that point, Burns ended up dabbling around with music while acing his acting abilities in the nearby theater.
Steve Burns started his acting career with appearances in Homicide, Life on the Street, and Law & Order. He became a superstar because of the kids' show Blue's Clues. The show ran for over a decade and became popular among television audiences, especially children and parents. Audiences highly admired his humor on the show. He made himself highly involved in the production of Blue's Clues since the start of the show.
He had appeared in 100 shows of Blue's Clues before leaving it in 2002. He received a nomination for a Daytime Emmy because of his work on the show.
Steve also had a music career. His first album was Songs for Dustmites. Later, he established a band called Steve Burns and the Struggle. After that, he made his second album, named Deep Sea Recovery Efforts, in 2009.
A meeting with producer Dave Fridmann of Mogwai and Luna prompted cooperation with Flaming Lips drummer Steve Drozd in 2002. The trio worked on Burns' particular outside-the-box rock sound and made Songs for Dustmites, which appeared on PIAS America in the summer of 2003. Steve had a role in Christmas on Mars, a science fiction film from the psychedelic band, the Flaming Lips.
In 2019, it was announced that after more than two decades since it debuted on-air, Blue's Clues was coming back to TV, but a familiar face would be missing. Steve Burns would not be repeating his role as host of the new version. Broadway star Joshua Dela Cruz now hosts the show.
In the special, Behind the Clues: 10 Years with Blue, Sve explained, "I knew I wasn't going to be doing children's television all my life, mostly because I refused to lose my hair on a kid's TV show, and it was happening, fast."
Steve Burns has not revealed any public information about his personal and private relationships.
