Have you Heard of Ben Folds?

Most of you know that I am a big Ben Folds fan: ever since I saw him perform at the Horde Festival in 1997, I've been hooked. I was so excited to see that he was a judge on "the Sing Off" last month, an a capella group competition. After watching the show, it just confirmed for me what an amazing and talented person he is. I mean, he really knows his stuff! If you haven't heard his music, I strongly recommend you give it a try. And if I can't convince you, check out this video of his mad piano skills. The video shooting isn't great, but you get the idea. If you don't want to watch the whole thing, just fast forward to about 3:20 and you'll get the gist. This is one of his classics "Philosophy", I never get sick of it!

I saw him on that show and immediately thought of you :) I didn't realize that he was such an amazing piano player though!

I've loved him ever since you introduced him to me in high school. My only CD was stollen when my car got jacked a few years ago. Thanks for reminding me I need to reinvest!

He is amazing. I'm so glad we went to a Ben folds concert with true fans.

(That would be you guys.)
