Hometown: Winston-Salem, NC (USA)


Ben Folds first found international success as the leader of the Ben Folds Five. His subsequent solo career has seen the release of multiple studio albums, a pair documenting his renowned live performances, a remix collection, music for film and TV, an all a capella record, as well as numerous collaborations with artists spanning Sara Bareilles to William Shatner.

A Nashville resident, Folds owns and operates Grand Victor Sound. The studio, formerly known as RCA Studio A, is the multi-platinum artist's creative hub, where he composes, collaborates, produces and records his genre-defying work, as well as that of other artists. Folds has earned universal respect and praise for his insight as judge on five highly rated seasons of NBC's a capella competition series, The Sing Off. In addition, he has made cameo appearances in a variety of film and TV projects, including a role on NBC's Community.
