About the Ben Folds Interview

Hello reddit. I'm Ben Folds and I play piano. Most recently I wrote a piano concerto and 8 new chamber rock songs. I recorded the concerto with the Nashville Symphony, the new chamber rock songs with yMusic, and put it all on a new record that comes out tomorrow, September 11. It's available here.

Ask me anything.
