Steve Poltz is not normal.
He was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia (Canada) but has lived most of his life in Southern California and those geographic poles are quite likely responsible for his unhinged genius. He is a dual citizen – Canada/USA – but has often said that, “should a hostage situation arise, I become conveniently Canadian.”
Over the course of his life hes met Elvis Presley (who hugged his sister for far too long), trick or treated at Liberaces house (each finger had a diamond ring), was Bob Hopes favourite altar boy (according to him), bravely traveled the world busking before he knew how to do it, famously co-wrote You Were Meant For Me with Jewel, pissed off David Cassidy and can count some of the worlds coolest people as fans.
As a recording artist, hes fronted the semi-legendary Rugburns and is responsible for a critically lauded body of work on his own: One Left Shoe, Chinese Vacation, Answering Machine, The Barn (a children’s album), Tales From The Tavern (a performance DVD), Traveling, Unraveling, Dreamhouse, Noineen Noiny Noin and most recently the soundtrack for the acclaimed Sundance-screened documentary film, Running Wild – The Life of Dayton O. Hyde.
