Steve Poltz in concert
December 4, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Folksinger songwriter, musician, composer and comedian Steve Poltz performs live at the Parlor Room.
2021 opened a door, he says — literally, his friend Oliver Wood of The Wood Brother’s door — to creating an exuberant, thoughtful batch of songs that celebrate life in all of its stages. The resulting album is called Stardust & Satellites [Red House / Compass Records].
With a cult following that includes fellow musicians, regular folks and festival-goers who stumble onto his performances, there’s no common denominator to Steve’s fans. Born in Halifax, Nova Scotia and raised in San Diego, CA Steve toured and recorded with San Diego cult favorites The Rugburns (they still play annual sold-out reunion shows).
But it was through his creative partnership with Jewel that he vaulted into the national spotlight, co-writing her multiplatinum Billboard Hot 100-busting smash, “You Were Meant For Me,” and he continues to work with her to this day.
