More About Steve Burns

Steve Burns is an American actor and television host best known as the original host of the long-running children's preschool television program Blue's Clues from 1996 until 2002, for which he was nominated for a Daytime Emmy in 2001. The series was rebooted as Blue's Clues and You, with Burns serving as frequent writer, director, and producer.

As a musician, he collaborates with Grammy award winners The Flaming Lips, with whom he released the critically acclaimed album Songs For Dustmites and Foreverywhere, an album for children, in 2016. Burns wrote and performs the theme song for Young Sheldon on CBS. He is a frequent host and storyteller for NPR's The Moth.

As a speaker, Burns refines and re-examines the message of empowerment and exceptionalism he delivered to a generation of children-carrying the thoughtful, care-driven conversation he began in their childhoods into their now-hoods as they struggle with the demands and realities of adulting.
