Steve Poltz
Steve PoltzHe trick-or-treated at Liberace's house, planned a two-day stay in Amsterdam that ended a month later with him escaping the city under the cover of darkness, and was Bob Hope's favorite altar boy. These are just a few of the anecdotes that pepper the between-song banter at a Steve Poltz performance. But on top of these add that this person also co-wrote the longest-running song on the Billboard Top 100 (Jewel’s “You Were Meant For Me”), had a debut solo album that earned three and a half stars in Rolling Stone, and was awarded the title of San Diego's Most Influential Artist of the Decade at the San Diego Music Awards. Successfully shattering the troubadour mold, Poltz has been compared to John Prine and Tom Waits. He is best known for his hilarious storytelling and witty personality. What you end up with is one engaging, twisted, and prolific songwriter.
Press Quotes:
“Cracker's singer, David Lowery once opined that the world needs another folk singer ‘like I need a hole in the head.’ He must not have known about Steve Poltz.”
-The Baltimore Sun
"A gifted singing songwriter... a fearless solo performer whose mixture of songs and stories make up for good art, good music and a good time."
- San Antonio Express-News
"Steve Poltz weds his love of absurdity to winsome melodies and aching chords on Chinese Vacation... There are times on Chinese Vacation where Poltz eerily echoes Jeff Tweedy's sweetly scratchy croon, as if a miner had sifted his vocals through a sieve along with the sediment, nicotine and shiny nuggets."
- North County Times
