After the group was disbanded, Ben Folds played drums for a band ‘Pots and Pans’ for a month.
In 1990, Ben Folds moved to Nashville after Scott Siman offered him a music publishing deal. Ben liked life at Nashville. Talking about his life there, Ben had said:
“In Nashville, I was running eight miles a day, hanging out with my friends, walking around eating chocolate-chip cookies and playing a lot of drums, which I enjoyed. Life was easy. I was never frustrated – even though I wasn’t fulfilling my contract obligations. If you are failing in Nashville, at least your standard of living is nice. Nashville is a nice way to fail.”
Ben Folds researched a lot on the piano technique. He said:
“I spent maybe six months just running scales with a metronome like a freak.I suppose that did something.”
Ben Folds now moved to Montclair, New Jersey and did some acting along with his music career. He then moved back to North Carolina and formed his Ben Folds Five band in 1994. With this band as well as solo afterward, Ben Folds created a number of genre-bending original music. Some of his scores also made it to the Billboard top list of music.
