Timeline of Chris Stroffolino


Stroffolino’s one-off topical songs have appeared in Raw Story and The Thom Hartmann Show. In 2010, Stroffolino released his first solo album, Single-Sided Doubles, on Pop Snob Records, as a vinyl/CD hybrid. In 2013, his piano playing and singing caught the attention of American film director and screenwriter Jeff Feuerzeig, who began videotaping Stroffolino on the piano during “street sessions” while Stroffolino performed out of a van that he lives in. Feuerzeig also decided to make an “instant record” of Stroffolino performing, resulting in a 12-track album, The Piano Van Sessions. Feuerzeig’s agent has heard Stroffolino’s record and story, and began representing him.


In the wake of the 9/11 attacks, he returned to the style of his first book with his controversial piece, “You Haven’t Done Nuthin'”, a rant-like poem often performed backed by a loud improvising rock band. In 2005, he toured the United States and Canada with Continuous Peasant and rejoined Silver Jews on stage in 2006 and 2008.

After co-editing, with Lisa Jarnot and Leonard Schwartz, An Anthology of New (American) Poets for Talisman House in 1998, Stroffolino published a critical edition of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night with Daniel Rosenthal (2000); the next year saw a collection of literary criticism entitled Spin Cycle. Critic Charles Altieri admired the populism of Spin Cycle’s essay “Radical Dogberry” essay, while the American Book Review praised this collection for holding out an olive branch between the various warring factions in the literary world, especially in the essay “Against Lineage” essay, adding “but sometimes that branch seems to be on fire”. More recently, Stroffolino has published music and culture criticism in The Big Takeover, Kitchen Sink, Viz, and Caught in the Carousel. In 2011, Self Portrait As Silver Jew was released as an e-book (45RPM).


Stroffolino’s next book, “Oops” (published by Boulder Colorado’s backyard press in 1991, republished by Pavement Saw Press in 1994) consisted of poems published in magazines but seldom performed at readings, and reached a wider audience across the country.
