Ben Folds Background

Hailing from Winston-Salem, North Carolina, Ben Folds took to the piano at the age of nine. His father, a carpenter, brought the piano home after he received it in barter for a job he did. But the piano was only just the beginning. Playing the piano ignited his passion for music, and it didn't take him long to take up other instruments. In the youth orchestra of the North Carolina Symphony, Folds played percussion and aspired to perform with a professional ensemble in the future. By the time he went on to R.J. Reynolds High School, he was a part of many different bands.

After high school, Folds went to the Frost School of Music at the University of Miami for a short stint, getting there on a drum scholarship. Unfortunately after just a year, he was unable to fulfill the obligations of his scholarship because of a broken hand.

But Folds didn't let that discourage him from pursuing his musical dreams. He perceived it as an opportunity to find his niche on the music scene.

In 1988, Folds hooked up with a pop-punk band, Majosha, and played bass guitar. The group premiered at the Battle of the Bands hosted by Duke University. The band was able to cultivate a loyal local following, gigging at house parties. They eventually released Shut Up and Listen to Majosha (1989), an EP, and soon after, band members went their separate ways.

In 1994, Folds teamed up with musical comrades Robert Sledge and Darren Jessee in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. The collaboration transitioned into the band, Ben Folds Five. It was a bewildering name for a group comprised of only three members. But the guys said they chose the name simply because they "thought it was funny." A year later, the band came out with their eponymous album, which showcased fresh melodies and a guitar-less sound. Their debut effort drew a lot of attention from fans as well as record labels. They inked a deal with Sony Music Entertainment and followed their successful premiere effort with Whatever and Ever Amen (1997). The album included hit tracks, Brick and Battle of Who Could Care Less, which took over the airwaves. The songs were a refreshing distraction from the other alternative music that was popular at the time. Ben Folds Five was an ideal fit for what was known as the "nerd-rock" music scene.

While the band didn't work on any new material together for almost a year after their debut's release, they put out a 1998 collection, Naked Baby Photos. The collection of B-Sides and rarities struck a chord with fans. As an experimental side project, Folds put out an album, Volume I. The album contained collaborations with Caleb Southern (producer) and John Mark Painter (musician). And, iconic actor/musician William Shatner even contributed to the effort.

Ben Folds Five's third full-length effort arrived in 1999, titled The Unauthorized Biography of Reinhold Messner.

A year later, the bandmates split up. Folds continued to devote his energies to his solo career. Rockin' the Suburbs came out in 2001 and was a hit among dedicated fans. This album propelled the release of a slew of solo albums, including Songs for Silverman (2005).

A Ben Folds Five one-time reunion was held in 2008. They played Reinhold Messner in its entirety at a hometown performance. The reunion inspired Jessee and Sledge to collaborate on Folds' The Best Imitation of Myself: A Retrospective in 2011.

Later on that year, Folds was inducted into the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame.

In 2012, Ben Folds Five officially reconciled and cemented their reunion with the release of The Sound of the Life of the Mind.
