“’Capable of Anything’ feels like a 5-Hour Energy drink on tightly wound strings — the arrangement is brilliant, with yMusic performing in deft ways where guitars and bass might fall into mediocrity and cliche.”—NPR Music
 
“Folds has inherited some of Gershwin’s missionary zeal – and his fans are undoubtedly ready to follow.”
The Guardian
 
Multi-platinum selling singer/songwriter/producer Ben Folds will release In Concert 2015-2016 this Friday on New West Records. This Record Store Day Black Friday exclusive 10” vinyl is a live snapshot capturing electrifying chamber rock performances by Ben Folds and New York-based classical sextet ensemble yMusic from their extensive North American tour surrounding the critically acclaimed LP So There. The album was released on September 11, 2015 and debuted at #1 on both Billboard's Classical and Classical Crossover charts – remaining in the Top 20 on the Classical Crossover chart for an entire year following its release. In Concert 2015-2016 includes “Capable Of Anything,” “Not A Fan,” and “Phone In A Pool” from So There, as well as previous pop hits “Erase Me” and “Steven’s Last Night In Town.” Each purchase also includes a digital download with three bonus tracks.
 
In Concert 2015-2016 by Ben Folds w/ yMusic will be available this Friday, November 25, at all indie retailers who participate in Record Store Day Black Friday. Find participating storesHERE. The tracks will be released digitally to all DSPs on December 9.
 
Folds has recently wrapped up a sold-out solo tour entitled “Ben Folds & A Piano,” reminiscent of his first solo tour in 2001 where he defied skeptics by delivering a high energy rock performance using the intimacy of just a piano. In addition to consistent touring over the past year in North America, Europe, and Australia, Folds has also expanded his resume to include multiple TV appearances. In October, he guest-starred in an episode of "You're The Worst" on FX, followed by an episode of "Comedy Bang Bang" on IFC this month. He will also guest star in an upcoming December episode of SHOWTIME’s new hit original series "Billions."
 
Folds first found fame with Ben Folds Five and has proceeded to have a very successful solo career, which includes writing and performing pop hits, recording multiple studio and live albums, collaborating with other renowned artists, and writing and recording for film and TV. Additionally, Folds is an avid photographer and a member of the distinguished Sony Artisans of Imagery. Folds is also an advocate for music education and music therapy as a member of Artist Committee of Americans For The Arts, and he serves as a member of the Board of Directors for the Nashville Symphony.
