Folds came to prominence in 1993 with the group Ben Folds Five.
Ben Folds Five's 1997 album Whatever & Ever Amen won platinum status and made them alternative-rock and college radio favorites.
The singer went solo in 2001. His albums include Rockin' the Suburbs (2001), Ben Folds Live (2002) and Maybe this Christmas (2002). Ben Folds official web site: http://www.benfolds.com/
