Simon went to Queens College to study English while Garfunkel majored in mathematics at Columbia University. After a few sporadic collaborations, they were signed to Columbia Records where they shed off the name Tom and Jerry to Simon & Garfunkel. Their first album was an initial failure and Simon went to England to pursue a solo career.

His single The Sound of Silence became such a success, it drew Simon to reunite with Garfunkel and together, they released a string of successful albums such as Bridge over Troubled Water. They would later work together on an on- and-off basis.

Their success was epitomized by their induction into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990. They also earned a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award where they reunited in 2003 and went on a tour across The United States.

His solo career has been widely successful with 12 Grammy Awards wins coupled with 5 nominations, an Oscar nomination and a solo inductee into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this is in addition to his induction as part of Simon & Garfunkel.

He has advocated for music training and health for children and has funded a number of charities promoting these causes. His philanthropy, impact on music and film has given him a net worth of $45 million
