Folds first tasted mainstream success as frontman for Ben Folds Five, whose 1997 studio album Whatever and Ever Amen spawned the hit single "Brick." As a solo artist, Folds scored a hit in 2001 with the song "Rockin the Suburbs," from the album of the same name. His most recent solo effort is 2008's Way to Normal.
In September, Folds released the album So There -- a collaboration with the yMusic Ensemble. Folds will be joined by the yMusic Ensemble during his performance in Bethlehem.
