Blessed with what the New York Times described as a “beautiful countertenor,” singer Art Garfunkel has made an indelible mark on the music world as both a solo artist and half of the unrivaled Simon & Garfunkel. He has also enjoyed a successful film career, published a book of poetry, released 12 solo albums, and spent time as a busy husband and father to his two sons, 26-year-old James and 11-year-old Beau Daniel. He is an avid walker who has trekked across Japan, the US (celebrated in the 1997 concert DVD Across America), and now Europe.
Garfunkel was originally revered for his Grammy-winning, chart-topping songs and albums with partner and fellow NYC native Paul Simon. Their greatest hits collection, which includes “Mrs. Robinson,” “Scarborough Fair,” “The Sound of Silence,” “The Boxer,” and “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” among others, is one of the biggest selling albums ever.
After Simon & Garfunkel parted ways in 1970, Garfunkel landed several major film roles, including parts in “Carnal Knowledge” (opposite Jack Nicholson), “Catch 22” and Nicholas Roeg’s “Bad Timing/A Sensual Obsession.” His solo debut Angel Clare spawned the top 10 hit “All I Know.” His other solo albums include Breakaway (1975; features the hit “I Only Have Eyes For You”), Watermark (1978; featuring “[What A] Wonderful World” with James Taylor and Paul Simon), Fate for Breakfast (1979), Scissors Cut (1981), The Animals’ Christmas (1986), Lefty (1988), Garfunkel (greatest hits, 1988), Up Till Now (1993), Across America (1997), Songs From a Parent to a Child (1997), Everything Waits to be Noticed (2003), Some Enchanted Evening (2007), and The Singer (2012).
The late ‘80s brought two new challenges for Garfunkel. He published Still Water, a collection of poetry in 1989, and began an amazing trek across America on foot, but he found his way back to enjoying what he does best: Singing for an audience.
“Taking on the fear and vulnerability of a live show keeps you vital,” says Garfunkel, who relishes the opportunity to perform new and classic material for fans around the world. “I’m a singer trying to get away with a lucky job. I try to soothe, to lift…that’s my life.” (More at ArtGarfunkel.com.)
