Episode #1 GET REAL PODCAST: Ben Folds

 BEN FOLDS

BEN FOLDS

Ben Folds is a Performer, Singer, Composer, Producer and Photographer. He has released multiple band and solo albums, and had collaborations w artists Sara Bareilles/Regina Spektor/ William Shatner. I had the great honor to interview him this summer for a Pinnacle Bank Event in Nashville. Ben does not just sing and play music, he understands all aspects of composing it. In 2013, he composed a Piano Concerto and has shared the stage with Symphonies everywhere playing it as well as his hits. He truly is a savant.  Music and Art is just who Ben is. We discuss how he found his Calling at a young age in music, how he has used music and art to express himself and stand up for what he believes is important, how he has always navigated the music industry (hint: he trusts his own instincts!), and his love for photography: he recently led a group of fans to Cuba on a Music and Photography Trip of a lifetime. Ben has fearlessly used his passion to guide him. He is true to himself and his art. He is not scared of losing. He knows his talent will always lead him to the right place.  Talking with him was like talking with pure wisdom. He just knows what matters.  I love this conversation and I am so grateful I got to be the one talking to him. Get ready to be inspired!
