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 is now releasing his 12th solo album, SOME ENCHANTED EVENING, out January 30, 2007 on Atco Records.
SOME ENCHANTED EVENING is a musical celebration of material from the 20th century’s greatest songwriters, including Rodgers & Hammerstein, Irving Berlin, Harold Arlen, Antonio Carlos Jobim and George Gershwin. “I’ve been loving this stuff all my life,” GARFUNKEL says. The album is the organic next chapter in GARFUNKEL’s life, as he reflects on fatherhood (he had his second son last year) and the chaotic world we live in: “In this nervous world I want to soothe. It’s a great time for moderation, for thoughtfulness, for dialogue, for the great Exhale, for humor. A great time for a sweet sound, a visceral, charming, prayerful sound.”
Art Garfunkel is available for corporate events, private shows, milestone celebrations (birthday, anniversary), fundraisers, festivals, and more.
