“Shane Koyczan shares his extraordinary blueprint for a breakthrough and breaks open hearts, minds and attitudes with his unlimited gift of poetry, storytelling and human connection (accompanied by The Short Story Long Band). This transformative performance took place at TEDxYouth@SanDiego 2013 for an audience of 400 amazing high school students from 40 different high schools and they will never be the same.”
Steven Harz was the 2013 winner of the international People’s Poetry Contest and is a three-time winner of The Iron Writer Challenge. Steve still writes poetry, but now it rhymes and is put to music – either acoustic with a Martin or electric with a Gretsch.
Songwriting influences are: John Prine, Townes Van Zandt, Blze Foley, Jessi Alexander, Tyler Childers, Lori McKenna, Gabe Lee, Luz, Cleto Cordero, Jason Isbell, and of course, Willie and Dolly!
Music is available on all streaming platforms – please check it out!
