Multi-platinum selling singer/songwriter/producer Ben Folds is releasing in 2015 a landmark record that will showcase new pop songs – arranged and recorded in collaboration with yMusic, a NYC-based sextet ensemble. The new record also features the debut of Folds’ critically acclaimed “Concerto For Piano and Orchestra.” Recorded in just under two weeks in New York, Los Angeles and Folds’ own historic RCA Studio A in Nashville, the record is marked by its forward-thinking studio craft and creative spontaneity.
Folds, who first found fame with the Ben Folds Five, has gone on to have a successful solo career, writing, recording and performing pop hits and a piano concerto, as well as writing and recording music for film and TV.
To kick off his 2015 touring, Folds will be joined for the initial tour shows by yMusic, which critics have characterized as combining “all the prestige and virtuosity of classical music degrees with all the attitude and energy of an indie rock band.” Folds will also perform other orchestral and solo shows throughout the year to promote the record.
