Burns got his first job as a voice actor for commercials. At the time he was living in a basement near Times Square. He subsequently had various roles on the television series Law & Order and Homicide: Life on the Street. In 1995 he auditioned for Blue’s Clues. However, he thought it was some kind of off-screen role.
At first glance, Steve failed to impress Nickelodeon executives, but he was eventually selected out of 100 auditions. Nickelodeon executive producer and co-creator Tracy Paige Johnson called it the most authentic of the 100. Blue’s Clues became an instant hit simply because of Byrne’s performance on the show, which suited the show’s format.
Burns hosted the popular children’s series for six years, from 1996 to 2002. In addition to his hosting role, he also helped produce the show. After hosting 100 episodes, he announced his retirement as host in 2002.
Steve said that although he never wanted to be a children’s show host, he stayed with the show for a long time. At the end of his last day, he shaved his head. After his departure, he was replaced by new host Donovan Patton.
Burns pursued his musical dream after leaving Blue’s Clues and spent two and a half years working on material for his debut album. On August 12, 2003 he finally released his first album “Songs for Dustmites”. Burns later formed a musical group called Steven Burns and the Struggle. In 2009 he released his second album titled Deep Sea Recovery Efforts.
