Steve Poltz likes to aim high, even when his subject matter doesn’t.

“It’s funny. When I write a song, I always think: ‘This is going to be the hugest hit, ever’!” said the former San Diego troubadour, who now lives in Nashville.

“I constantly have delusions. I think I’m swinging for the fences, which I love to do. I’m always excited about some song I just wrote.”

Poltz, who was a mentor to Jewel and co-wrote her 1996 smash, “You Were Meant for Me,” has made 16 albums as a solo artist and as the leader of the San Diego rock band The Rugburns.
