Although best known for the piano-driven rock he wrote and performed as both a solo artist and with his band the Ben Folds Five, Ben Folds, who performs at Westobou with Symphony Orchestra Augusta, is no stranger to orchestral maneuvers. He premiered his Concerto for Piano and Orchestra with the Nashville Symphony in 2014 and will release the album So There, which features a recording of the Concerto along with eight string- and piano-driven songs he describes as ‘chamber rock.’

The Nashville-based Folds is also an avid photographer and member of the Sony Artisans of Imagery and a tireless advocate for music as an education and therapeutic tool. He also served as a judge on the NBC music competition The Sing-Off for five seasons.

In 2003 he moved into the historic RCA Studio A in Nashville, where artists such as Elvis Presley, Dolly Parton and Tony Bennett recorded. Today he operates the facility as Grand Victor Sound Studio.
