Along with G. Love & Special Sauce, Harper developed a fanbase of surfers in the '90s with mellow tracks like this one. Around the time of "Steal My Kisses," Jack Johnson was emerging in this community. He and Harper became good friends, and Harper appeared on Johnson's 2001 debut album Brushfire Fairytales
, which sold over a million copies and launched him to stardom.
"Ben and I have a similar approach to performance, which is really going for it and laying everything on the line with all this passion and wild energy, and Jack's approach is simply laid-back," G. Love told Songfacts
. "He was just standing up there strumming a couple of chords on the guitar, and you could see people connect with it."
