About Steve Poltz
Southern California’s Steve Poltz is one of the most beloved songwriters of his generation. His music--as both a solo artist and with cult legends The Rugburns--has enjoyed long stretches in the Billboard top ten, gobbled up acres of mainstream radio and appeared in scores of television shows, commercials and movies. He has collaborated with everyone from Jewel to Glenn Tillbrook to Mojo Nixon, and his legendary live show has earned him a ferocious global fan base that makes soccer hooligans seem coquettish and reserved.
"In the tradition of John Prine and Randy Newman, Poltz’s songs and albums are marked by his sense of nostalgia, his love of being in love, and his unique brand of satirical humor. Add to this his raw talent for lyrics and his appreciation for a perfect folk-pop melody and you've got a man who is truly a step beyond today's endless supply of acoustic musicians." -Dana Blaisdell, No Depression
