Paul Frederic Simon who is known as Paul Simon was born on 13th October, 1941 in Newark, New Jersey. He is an American based songwriter- singer and also a guitarist. His love for music can be traced back to the very early years of his life. His father, Louis Simon, was a musician who played the bass very professionally. His mother Belle though was an elementary school teacher but at the same time was a trained musician, who taught music to those who needed to learn it, in her free time. His father was considered to be the very first violinist on the radio station. They moved to the United States in the year 1930.
Simons started learning music when he was only eleven years old. He met Art Garfunkel at Forest Hills High School and performed together in Alice in Wonderland and after two years they started singing together as well. Their performances started from the school dances and were greatly influenced by the Everly Brothers. As he matured he started experimenting with different types of music which include jazz, folk and blues. His father wrote a song The Girl for Me for him and Garfunkel when he was thirteen years old. This song is now a part of the Library of Congress as the first song sung by this young couple. In the year 1957 they signed a contract with Big Records and recorded Hey, Schoolgirl which secured forty ninth position on the pop charts that season.
