Check Out Jeff Feuerzeig’s ‘Piano Van’ Project Featuring the Silver Jews’ Chris Stroffolino

‘The Devil and Daniel Johnston’ director Jeff Feuerzeig has an interesting new project on the go. He’s teamed up with ex-Silver Jews musician Chris Stroffolino to create a series of Super 8mm videos (shot on the iPhone using a remarkably convincing app) which feature single take piano/vocal performances performed in Stroffolino’s van. All of these tracks are leading up to an album titled ‘The Piano Van Sessions’. Here’s more info on the project and Chris’ story via the Piano Van website:

The album will be titled The Piano Van Sessions and a few tracks are currently available on Bandcamp as well as a selection of single-take Super 8mm videos I directed which are posted on YouTube. I hope this will cause Chris’s @Piano_Van daily tweets (of his roving Pied Piper-like location) to ignite a street karaoke phenomenon.

In addition, my friend and former manager of Daniel Johnston, Jeff Tartakov, will manage Chris (the first artist he’s agreed to work with since Daniel Johnston) with the goal of getting him a proper publishing deal, a record label, and hopefully enough success so that he no longer has to live in his van.

Head over to the Piano Van website and check out the rest of the videos Jeff has posted. You can also follow Chris Stroffolino on Twitter @Piano_Van and head over to Bandcamp to download a couple of tracks from the upcoming album ‘The Piano Van Sessions’.
