Ben Folds and his inventive, often humorous music styles can be called a lot of things; conventional certainly isn’t one of them. From collaboration albums with William Shatner to a somehow heartwarming rendition of Dr. Dre’s ’92 classic Bitches Ain’t Shit, all the way to an A Cappella album, Ben and crew somehow always seem to be doing something out of the ordinary.
For Ben’s latest project, his first studio release in three years, he has chosen yet another new route: Baroque pop. So There, released on 9/11/15 features eight original chamber pop tunes and an original three movement Piano Concerto with the Nashville Symphony.
