Steve Poltz - seated show! Biography
Southern California’s Steve Poltz is one of the most beloved songwriters of his generation. His music--as both a solo artist and with cult legends The Rugburns--has enjoyed long stretches in the Billboard top ten, gobbled up acres of mainstream radio and appeared in scores of television shows, commercials and movies. He has collaborated with everyone from Jewel to Glenn Tillbrook to Mojo Nixon, and his legendary live show has earned him a ferocious global fan base that makes soccer hooligans seem coquettish and reserved. In fact, X front man John Doe once said, "My idea of hell would be having Steve Poltz open for me every day. There's no place left for the audience to go."With his latest record, Noineen Noiny Noin, Poltz is back to remind the world that the intersection of beauty and madness is a majestic place to spend a little time. The title refers to one of Poltz’ many tours through Australia, when he asked a promoter if he remembered the year when Poltz first came through Oz. “Oi reckon it was noineen noiny noin,” the man said, referring to the year 1999. And thus an album was born.
