Samuel Stephen “Steve” Forbert (born December 13, 1954) is an American pop music singer-songwriter. His 1979 song “Romeo’s Tune” reached No. 11 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and No. 13 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary Chart. It also spent two weeks at No. 8 in Canada. Forbert’s first four albums all charted on the Billboard 200 chart, with Jackrabbit Slim certified gold. In 2004, his Any Old Time album was nominated for a Grammy Award in the Best Traditional Folk category. Forbert has released twenty studio and three live albums.

Forbert’s songs have been recorded by several artists, including Rosanne Cash, Keith Urban, Marty Stuart and Webb Wilder. In 2017, a tribute album, An American Troubadour: The Songs of Steve Forbert, was released, with covers of his songs by twenty-one artists. Bob Harris of BBC Radio 2 said Forbert has “One of the most distinctive voices anywhere.”

In September 2018, he released his self-penned memoir, Big City Cat: My Life In Folk Rock, with editor Therese Boyd. It accompanied the release of his 19th studio album The Magic Tree on Blue Rose Music.
