So what’s my Ben Folds experience? My first time hearing anything Ben Folds has composed was while watching the movie “Over The Hedge.” Ben is all over the animated adventure and adds the right elements for the strange characters, one of them voiced by William Shatner.

March 16-19 Austin, TX Red Gorilla Music Fest I love this festival! I love being able to meet new people and hearing what directions artists are going musically. I hear music that is a clear throwback to older music, I hear new music that goes in new directions, and a few bands that mix both. […]
