Art Garfunkel


Art Garfunkel -- Voice Of An Angel
Art Garfunkel's voice is his instrument and one of his most recognizable features.
"Art Garfunkel is one of those great, rare voices," James Taylor wrote in Rolling Stone Magazine. "I would know it anywhere at the drop of a hat, in half a bar."
As one half of the "folk rock" duo Simon & Garfunkel, Art Garfunkel released a string of hits from 1965 to 1970 with his childhood friend, Paul Simon, which helped land them at #40 of Rolling Stone Magazine's list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.

They've also received several Grammys and are inductees of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Long Island Music Hall of Fame.

"They were fabulous years," Art remembers warmly. "I'll always be happy to say a little on behalf of the duo. I'm proud of singing those great songs. Now they teach Paul Simon songs in churches and schools as part of the curricula... it seems that part of good citizenship is the knowledge of the songs we did. How can I grasp that?"
