Ben Folds is widely regarded as one of the major music influencers of our generation. Throughout his career, Folds has created an enormous body of genre-bending music that includes pop albums with Ben Folds Five, multiple solo albums, and collaborative records with artists from Sara Bareilles and Regina Spektor, to William Shatner. His most recent album, ‘So There’ is a blend of pop and classical original works that soared to #1 on both the Billboard classical and classical crossover charts.
While in Detroit for a stop on his current ‘Paper Airplane Requests’ tour, Ben sat down with Googler Laura Murphy to discuss his trailblazing music, his brilliant photography and what it would sound like if he wrote a song about Google.
