Rumbledoll (1994) was her first record .

Vivienne "Patti" Scialfa (born July 29, 1953 in Long Branch, New Jersey). Scialfa (pronounced "Skal-fa") has a music degree from New York University and was writing songs from a very early age. She struggled to make her way in the songwriting and recording industry in New York/New Jersey for many years before working with Southside Johnny and David Johansen. In 1986, she appeared on the Rolling Stones' Dirty Work album, leaving her unique vocal mark on "One Hit (To the Body)" as well as other tracks. She worked with Keith Richards on his first solo disc Talk is Cheap.

In 1984 she joined Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band. During the 1987 Tunnel of Love tour she fell in love with Springsteen and took a center role in the stage performances. Springsteen was married at the time to actress/model Julianne Phillips. The initial scandal of the affair surprised some long-time fans who considered him to be nearly infallible - and relieved some fans who liked the idea of his settling down with a Jersey girl. Springsteen and Scialfa married on June 8, 1991. They have three children: Evan, Samuel and Jessica.

Scialfa has made two solo albums, 1994's Rumbledoll, and 2004's 23rd Street Lullaby. She inspired her husband to write "Red Headed Woman," and he often dedicates Tom Waits' "Jersey Girl" to her in concert. Springsteen also played guitar on Rumbledoll. They settled in New Jersey after a brief stint in California soon after marrying.
