Paul Simon

Co-Founder, Singer Songwriter

It is rare that an artist who captures and expresses the sentiments of a particular era goes on to expand his horizons while remaining a powerful cultural and personal force. Paul Simon is undoubtedly among this select group. Performing with Art Garfunkel, a childhood friend, as “Simon and Garfunkel,” he was largely responsible for writing, arranging, and recording the duo’s classic folk and rock songs.
