Stringfellow moved on to several different projects after the dissolution of the Posies. He formed the now-defunct band Saltine, a promising power pop act that disbanded after releasing only one EP. Stringfellow also played with such bands as Twin Princess (with Seattle artist Bootsy Holler), the Orange Humble Band, Lagwagon, Scott McCaughey's the Minus 5, Chariot, the Disciplines, and R.E.M., with whom he occasionally toured. (Stringfellow also joined the band in the studio to contribute to 2001's Reveal.) Stringfellow has also collaborated in the studio with fellow singer/songwriters Brendan Benson, Michael Cerveris, and Mark Lassiter.
In addition to continuing his partnership with Jon Auer, Stringfellow has enjoyed a fine career as a solo singer/songwriter. He launched his solo catalog with This Sounds Like Goodbye in 1997, followed by Touched four years later. He released Soft Commands in 2004, having recorded the songs in various studios around the world, while The Sellout Cover Sessions, Vol. 1 allowed him to stretch his legs with a batch of eclectic cover material in 2008. In 2010, Stringfellow and Auer reunited the Posies for a seventh studio album, Blood/Candy, followed in 2012 by a fourth Stringfellow solo outing, Danzig in the Moonlight. A collection of covers, rarities, and outtakes from Stringfellow's solo career, I Never Said I'd Make It Easy, was released in early 2014. ~ Laurel Greenidge, Rovi
