A Few Good Reasons to Buy Ben Folds Tickets on TicketIQ
One of the most creative piano-pop songwriters of his generation, Ben Folds first found fame as the leader of his eponymous trio before carving out an intriguing solo career which saw him work with everyone from collegiate a cappella groups to Star Trek icons. Born in Winston-Salem, North Carolina in 1966, Folds grew up on the music of Billy Joel and Elton John and first began to follow in their footsteps when he teamed up with long-time friend Millard Powers to form Majosha in the late 80s. The duo split up shortly after the release of debut album, Shut Up and Listen to Majosha, and Folds went onto play in various other outfits including Pots and Pans, Bus Stop and The Semantics, while also studying at the University of Miami’s Frost School of Music on a percussion scholarship.
Folds’ career truly began to take shape when he joined forces with bassist Robert Sledge and drummer Darren Jessee to form Ben Folds Five in 1993. The trio’s self-titled debut arrived two years later, but it was 1997’s Whatever and Ever Amen which made mainstream audiences take notice of their ‘punk rock for wussies’ sound, charting inside the US Top 50, and spawning a string of college rock hits. Appearances on the travelling HORDE festival and tours by Dave Matthew Band and Beck further raised their profile, but after releasing 1999’s The Unauthorised Biography of Reinhold Messner, the band amicably split.
Folds had already started to explore other avenues, venturing into electronica for the 1998 side-project, Fear of Pop, but launched his solo career properly with 2001’s Rockin’ The Suburbs, a record which further established his quirky piano-pop credentials. Three years later, Folds served as producer of William Shatner’s cult classic, Has Been, and went onto add to his tally of solo albums with 2005 sophomore, Songs For Silverman, 2006 EP collection, Supersunnyspeedgraphic, and 2008’s Top 20 entry, Way To Normal.
Folds then added a bunch of collegiate vocal groups and British novelist Nick Hornby to his list of unlikely collaborators for the Ben Folds Presents! University A Cappella and Lonely Avenue albums respectively, became a YouTube phenomenon thanks to an improvised song based on the Chatroulette social network, and made a foray into TV with a judging role on NBC talent show, The Sing-Off. Folds scored his first ever US Top 10 album when Ben Folds Five reunited for 2012’s comeback LP, The Sound of the Life of the Mind, before making cameos in Community and We’re The Millers, premiering a commissioned piano concerto he composed with the Nashville Symphony Orchestra and hooking up with NYC-based sextet yMusic for 2015 LP, So There.
