BIOGRAPHY

Multi-platinum selling singer/songwriter/producer Ben Folds first found fame with the Ben Folds Five. He’s gone on to have a successful solo career, writing and performing pop hits, recording multiple studio and LIVE albums, collaborating with
other artists, and writing and recording for film and TV.
In addition to performing sold out rock shows, over the past decade he has shared the stage with some of the world’s greatest symphony orchestras, performing his pop hits and his critically acclaimed piano concerto. His concerto and a host of new pop songs were featured on his most recent album SO THERE, which debuted #1 on Billboard’s Classical and Classical Crossover album charts. This fall of 2016, Folds is back to pound pianos again in a solo tour reminiscent of his earliest solo tours, where he defied skeptics by delivering a high energy rock performance using the intimacy of just a piano.
In addition to his self-described love of performing and making music “for humans, ”Folds is also an avid photographer, and is a member of the distinguished Sony Artisans of Imagery.
Folds is also an advocate for music education and music therapy as a member of Artist Committee of the Americans For The Arts. He also serves as a member of the Board of Directors of the Nashville Symphony.
