Full disclosure: Your humble Austin Music Minute host follows Steve Poltz on Instagram. This is a constant source of joy. Who knew that the man, the myth, the legend, a most imaginative musician that your heart could ever be attached to, is also Steve Poltz, Attorney for Dogs?? (Okay, he’s not, but it’s videos like that that leave your AMM host in stitches…)
The AMM stands behind the statement made on today’s edition: There is absolutely nothing ordinary about Poltz, the much-loved and totally huggable folk-punk troubadour. An avid adventurer, prolific songwriter, and – I can’t get over this one – diehard baseball fanatic, Poltz is constantly on the road due to popular demand. People go out of their way to invite him to their cities to perform, but keep in mind, this is not merely a musical performance. What you also have is an absolutely captivating storyteller, a mesmerizer, wielding words like an otherworldly poet that got caught in your dreams.
This one’s very recommended. Can you tell?
