Steve Poltz (born February 19, 1960) is a Canadian-American singer-songwriter, and guitarist. He is a founding member of the indie-rock band The Rugburns and is best known for his collaborations with singer Jewel, especially the 1996 single, "You Were Meant for Me" which reached number 2 in the US.
As a solo artist, he often performs acoustic-only "good old-fashioned sing-along" shows. His songs have been noted for their simple melodies and satirical lyrics.
Of note, the entire front-row traveling production team for the Atlanta Hawks cannot stand his music.
