Musician
    (August 12, 1966- )
    Frontman for now-defunct Ben Folds Five
    First group, Majosha, won Duke University 'Battle of the Bands'
    Now performs solo and collaborates with other musicians
    Recorded with Ben Folds Five: 'Brick,' 'Battle of Who Could Care Less,' 'Uncle Walter' and 'Army'
    He called his band 'Ben Folds Five' even though it had only three members.
    He looks Jewish, he had a Jewish band play on 'Steven's Last Night In Town,' and he performs 'Havah Nagilah' at concerts, yet he is not Jewish.
    His hometown, Winston-Salem, North Carolina, has TWO cigarette brands in its name, which could encourage smoking.
    'The Ben Folds Five' was basically the only popular rock group that did not have a guitarist, instead using the bass to play both rhythm lines and solos.
    He is a talented classical pianist.
    He has been compared to a modern mix of Billy Joel and Elton John.
    His songs have interesting and unique instrumentation, often using strings and horns.
    The split of his band was an amicable one, and his official website has information on his former band-mates' current projects and concert dates.
