Folds is widely acclaimed for his skill as a pianist, composer, songwriter, performer, and multi-instrumentalist. Rolling Stone magazine says, “Folds' aggressive piano playing falls in line with ivory-pounding rockers from Jerry Lee Lewis through Elton John.” Folds has played the college circuit for years and concerts feature him on keyboard and a backup band of guitar and drums. His last album, Way to Normal, is reminiscent of 1970’s-era Randy Newman. His next album, Stems & Seeds, is due to be released February 10.
