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 and released 12 solo albums, the most recent being 2007’s Some Enchanted Evening.

Since then, he has been busy as a husband and father to his two sons, 26 year-old James and 11-year-old Beau Daniel.  He is also an avid walker who has walked across Japan, the US (celebrated in the 1997 concert DVD, Across America) and now Europe.

Art 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 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 1975’s Breakaway, featuring 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), Scissor Cut (1981), The Animals’ Christmas (1986), Lefty (‘88), 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), and 2007’s Some Enchanted Evening. In 2012, Garfunkel released The Singer, a 32-track handpicked collection of his greatest songs.

Garfunkel  is an avid reader and has chronicled every book he’s read since June 1968 on his website –1,210 in all. His new book, “What Is It All But Luminous (Notes From An Underground Man)” was released last September.
