Ben Folds and Nick Hornby – Saskia Hamilton

In songs on January 17, 2012 at 11:37 am

I’ve spoken here about the value of collaboration, and lately one of the best examples has been Ben Folds‘ unorthodox partnerships with non-musicians. We covered his work with William Shatner earlier, and recently he did an album with author Nick Hornby which is just as engaging.

This combination of an author’s verbal prowess with Folds’ quirky arrangements and melodic sense makes for an absolutely unique listening experience, a good songwriting goal.
