Multi-platinum-selling singer/songwriter/producer Ben Folds first found mainstream success as the leader of critically acclaimed band Ben Folds Five. He has gone on to lead a vastly successful solo career, recording multiple studio albums, a pair of live records, a remix record, music for film and TV, and collaborations with artists from Sara Bareilles to William Shatner. An advocate for the arts and arts education, Folds was a judge on NBC’s a cappella competition, “The Sing-Off,” for five consecutive seasons. Most recently, Folds has delved into the classical arena, collaborating with New York City chamber ensemble yMusic on his new album So There.
