North Carolina native Ben Folds has been in the music business for over 25 years. One of his first claims to fame came in the 90’s with the hit “Brick” which he recorded with his band Ben Folds Five.

Since then Folds has collaborated with legends like William Shatner, been a judge on Sing-Off, and operated the prominent Nashville studio Grand Victor Sound.

Folds is once again trying something new with his latest album, So There, which features a three part concerto. It's a collaboration with 6-piece orchestral ensemble yMusic. He’s in Charlotte Tuesday night and spoke with WFAE’s Sarah Delia.
