Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel grew up together in the Jewish suburb of New York city. In 1957, inspired by the work of the Everly brothers, they began to perform under the name Tom & Jerry and recorded the single “Hey Schoolgirl”, enjoyed moderate success in the adolescent environment.

In 1963, when the musicians graduated from high school, the passion for folk music brought them together again-now they were recorded and performed under their own names. Paul Simon wrote music and lyrics, while Garfunkel conquered the audience with a tall angelic tenor. A year later the world saw the debut CD of the Duo, “Wednesday Morning, 3 A. M.”.
