Produced by Oliver Wood and Jano Rix of The Wood Brothers.
LIMITED EDITION LP pressed on pink & purple vinyl.
Throughout over three decades in music, Steve Poltz has done it all and more — he co-wrote Jewel’s Hot 100-topping megahit “You Were Meant For Me,” fronted ‘90s underground legends The Rugburns and has built a huge cult following for his solo tours. A gonzo entertainer, storyteller and prolific collaborator (Billy Strings, Molly Tuttle, to name just two), Poltz, now in Nashville, enlisted members of The Wood Brothers for STARDUST AND SATELLITES. It’s an album dealing with loss (he’s lost both parent’s in the past two years), simple joys and childhood memories — summer baseball games, a stint he did with Up With People, and more. This could be his best yet!
“Steve Poltz is a living example of the American music tradition, a songwriter who can bend your ear with a hooky melody, then break your heart with a wry observation about the human condition.” —Popmatters
“A sardonic provocateur with a lighthearted acoustic-driven wit, Poltz has suggested at times a sunnier, less psychedelic Todd Snider, or maybe a less wan, washed Jackson Brown.” —No Depression
“Poltz is part busker, part Iggy Pop and part Robin Williams, a freewheeling folkie with a quick wit and big heart. See him live and wonder why he doesn’t fill arenas.” —Associated Press
“Steve is the ultimate troubadour—a highly engaging storyteller and performer. I’m glad our paths crossed all those years ago.” —Jewel
“I thought I was creative until I met Steve Poltz.” —Steve Wozniak
