Strawberry Spotlight: Steve Poltz – Stardust and Satellites

A pandemic blessing? During Covid-style, outdoor Nashville hangs with the Wood Brothers, Steve Poltz caught a whim to record a song with Oliver Wood and Jano Rix.  Lo and behold, it sparked a whole new Steve Poltz album produced by Oliver and Jano, titled Stardust and Satellites.

On one of the last nights of the recording sessions, Steve locked himself up in his writing room and within an hour, had conjured the catchy, effervescent “Can O’ Pop,” destined to be the radio single for the 2022 release.

“Jano from The Wood Brothers was leaving the studio, and I asked him to give me a beat, and I told him I’d write a song with the beat he gave me,” recalls Steve. The exuberant, syncopated groove seems to bubble up as Steve admits, “I want to feel the fizzy rhythm with you.”

Let’s get fizzy with Mr. Bubbly himself, Steve Poltz, Sunday at Strawberry!
