Ben Folds first found mainstream success as leader of the critically acclaimed, platinum-selling band Ben Folds Five. He has since enjoyed an active solo career, recording multiple studio albums, two records documenting his renowned live performances, a remix record, music for film and TV, and numerous collaborations with artists from Sara Bareilles to William Shatner.
In 2012, Folds reunited with the Ben Folds Five and released The Sound Of The Life Of The Mind. The band toured in early 2013, following with the release of their first live album Ben Folds Five LIVE. Folds has recently received praise for his insight as a judge for NBC's a cappella competition The Sing-Off. Special Guest, Anthony D'Amato.
Recorded with members of Bon Iver, Megafaun, and Josh Ritter's band, Anthony D'Amato's New West Records debut, The Shipwreck From The Shore, has already earned praise from NPR and The NY Times to SPIN and Billboard for its heavy-hearted folk and electric streaks of rock and roll. Veering away from the homemade DIY production style that marked his early work, D'Amato relocated to producer Sam Kassirer's Great North Sound Society, an 18th-century farmhouse-turned-studio in rural Maine, to cut the album raw and fast in just eleven days.
D'Amato first came to national attention with 2010's Down Wires, which he recorded with a single microphone in his college bedroom and NPR dubbed "a modern folk gem". He followed it up with another home recording, Paper Back Bones, which BBC Scotland named one of the Best Americana Albums of 2012. Dates in the US and Europe with Josh Ritter, Rhett Miller, Pete Yorn, Ben Kweller, Alejandro Escovedo, Mary Gauthier, Joe Pug, Gretchen Peters, Shawn Colvin, and more ensued, in addition to performances at the iconic Newport Folk Festival and Glasgow's Celtic Connections.
