Born in Nova Scotia but associated with his years in San Diego, CA, Poltz has co-written an iconic, multiplatinum single (“You Were Meant For Me” with then girlfriend Jewel), signed to a major label (he chafed under the restrictions) and created a career as a songwriter, humorist and collaborator with a fervid following. Now based in Nashville, Poltz has, for the first time in two decades, decided to partner with a label, Red House Records. Bookended by songs inspired as a response to a mass shooting, Shine On, produced by Will Kimbrough, is Poltz at his most searching and insightful, with the wry, slightly skewed world-view that has endeared him to so many.
