Steve Poltz

San Diego-based songwriter Steve Poltz may be best known for his duet with Jewel, but anyone who has seen him play live knows that the man has a lot more to offer.  This song was recorded and written in less than three hours in a condo in Austin during the SXSW festival this year.

“Tramp Stamp” is available on iTunes.

 

 

The song we wrote and recorded with Steve was inspired by a title host Ben Arthur has been wanting to write about for a long time.  Steve took the ball and ran with it!

 

 

And, amazingly, he even played it live for a packed audience the next night…and had the audience sing along while he crowd-surfed!

 

 

Our broadcast partner, Acoustic Cafe, did a great segment on Steve and the creation of the song:
