Episode 70:
Ben Folds


I only recently discovered "Live from Daryl's House". What a great show, so natural, and such great music and musicians. Slowly making my way through the available episodes while awaiting news of what's planned for the future. Fascinated by Ben's treatment of a piano in this episode ! Thank you Daryl for putting these shows together. Greetings to your team from Katoomba Australia.

I have listened to this episode, over and over again..... By far, one of the best! Absolutely astounding sound, sure wish we had access to more of the earlier episodes. It probably won't happen but a collection of these on an album would be fantastic!

Yes, I would love to be able to see more archive episodes on here, such as Smokey Robinson, K. T. Tunstall. I know we can see them on YouTube, but not like it is on here; seems to be just excerpts on YouTube. This is the best show on TV; the best show on the Internet!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! Can't say enough about this show, Daryl Hall, the band, and all the great, great music!!! I hope this show continues forever...at least for a long time to come!

Ben Folds
Multi-platinum selling singer/songwriter/producer Ben Folds first found mainstream success as the leader of the critically acclaimed Ben Folds Five. He has gone on to have a very successful solo career, recording multiple studio albums, a pair of records documenting his renowned live performances, a remix record, music for film and TV, as well as numerous collaborations with artists from Sara Bareilles to William Shatner.

In 2012, Folds reunited with the Ben Folds Five, released a new album and toured the world in 2012-13. In early 2013 they released their first LIVE album.

Folds returned to his solo career in 2013.

Folds has also achieved critical acclaim for his insight as a judge on NBC's a cappella competition "The Sing-Off,” which aired for five seasons.

Over the past year, he’s also made a cameo appearances in film and TV, including a role on Comedy Central’s “Community.” He’s also written and recorded several songs for film and TV consideration.

A Nashville resident, Folds owns and operates the historic RCA Studio A, once managed by Chet Atkins, and the home to thousands of legendary recording sessions in all genres of music – from Elvis Presley to the Monkees, Dolly Parton to Kacey Musgraves, Tony Bennett to the Beach Boys, Brian Setzer to Hunter Hayes. The studio is Folds’ creative hub, where he composes, collaborates, produces and records his works, as well as those of others in the industry.

Folds, who serves as a member of the Board of Directors of the Nashville Symphony, has composed a highly acclaimed 25-minute, three movement concerto for piano and orchestra. He premiered the concerto in Nashville, and has been performing it and other orchestrations of his pop hits with major symphonies before sold out crowds across the nation. He is also touring Europe, the Pacific Rim and Australia this year.

A member of the distinguished Artist Committee for Americans for The Arts, Folds is a leading outspoken advocate for music therapy and music education, and recently participated in a special conference at Sundance Resort hosted by Robert Redford that explored how music and art therapy can help our nation’s military veterans.
