Paul Simon

Paul Simon’s career in music took off at the tender age of eleven when he performed along with Garfunkel for an ‘Alice in Wonderland production. From then on they started performing as a rock duo under the name, ‘Tom and Jerry‘.

Some of the initial hits of the duo include ‘Our Song’ and ‘That’s My Story. In the year 1964, the duo impressed the executive of Columbia Records, Clive Davis, who immediately signed them for an album.

Columbia Records registered the duo by their real name and released their first long play, ‘Wednesday Morning, 3 A.M’. Unfortunately, the album did not perform well on the music charts. Dismayed by the failure of his debut album, Simon headed to Europe.

There he collaborated with Bruce Woodley, a member of the Australian rock band, ‘The Seekers’. Together they composed a few songs like ‘Red Rubber Ball’, ‘I Wish You Could Be Here, and ‘Cloudy’.

After he returned to the US, a producer named Tom Wilson reworked his debut album and released it as a single under the title, ‘The Sound of Silence’. The album became a massive hit. Its second volume was released as ‘The Sounds of Silence’, on which Simon once again worked with Garfunkel.

The duo released numerous chartbusters right after their second LP. Meanwhile, they contributed to the soundtrack of the iconic film by Mike Nichols, ‘The Graduate’, which was a smash hit.

Simon-Garfunkel duo parted ways and moved on to build their respective career in different fields. Simon stuck to his music career and began working to impart new dimensions to rock music.

In the year 1972, Simon recorded a self-titled solo album that included songs like ‘Mother and Child Reunion and ‘Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard’. The tracks gave birth to a new style of music that was quite distinct from his previous works and earned rave reviews from the initially skeptical critics.

In the year 1980, Simon stepped into the field of filmmaking. Inspired by the appearance of Woody Allen in the film ‘Annie Hall’, Simon wrote and starred in his movie, ‘One-Trick Pony’. He also recorded a soundtrack for the film. The movie tanked at the box office, but the soundtrack yielded the hit single, ‘Late in the Evening’.

Also, all of these were commercial successes. He also had a long-time association with the TV show ‘Saturday Night Live. He has so far appeared on the show about 15 times.

Sounds of Silence –This was the duo’s second album and it sounded soothing, unlike their first record. Released in 1965, the album included chartbuster tracks like ‘Kathy’s Song’, ‘The Sound of Silence’, ‘Richard Cory’, and ‘I Am a Rock’. Bridge Over Troubled Water – This was one of the biggest-selling albums of its decade.
