You have not experienced true entertainment until you sit in the audience at one of Steve Poltz’s shows. The former singer from The Rugburns (Mercury Records) is best known for his hilarious storytelling and witty personality, defying all traditional definitions in the songwriting genre. This is a rare artist who is as comfortable touring with such noted national acts like Bob Dylan, John Mellencamp, Jewel, The Wallflowers, Bare Naked Ladies, Rusted Root and Lucinda Williams in arenas, as well as performing intimate living room shows in any city in America. Successfully shattering the traditional troubadour mold, Poltz has most gloriously been compared to unique performers and songwriters like John Prine and Tom Waits. Steve wrote and appeared in the video of the 1995 hit, “You Were Meant For Me” helping launch Jewel’s debut CD to triple platinum.
