I’ve enjoyed Ben Folds’ music for a while. While I enjoy his piano playing and singing, I personally find his song writing to be particularly interesting. I think he’s developed pretty original original style.
Recently I found an essay Folds wrote and posted on his Facebook page. His post has a lot of great advice for aspiring artists on topics of finding your own voice, hard work, dealing with criticism, and developing technique. He starts off by quoting Neal Young:
