Carly Simon

The daughter of Richard Simon, co-founder of the Simon and Schuster publishing company, Carly got her start in music singing in coffee houses with her sister Lucy in the early 60s. After an unsuccessful attempt to launch a solo career, Carly burst onto the music scene in 1971 with her first Top 10 hit "That's The Way I've Always Heard It Should Be," which won her the Best New Artist Grammy Award and set the stage for an enormously successful career. After her second hit, "Anticipation," Carly roared to the top of the charts with her album NO SECRETS, and its #1 hit "You're So Vain."

Newly married to James Taylor, Carly piled up a series of bestselling albums, including PLAYING POSSUM (1975), which featured controversial cover art of a scantily-clad Carly, although there had always been a sort of subtle sexuality on many of her album covers before (and after); however, none were as blatant as this particular one. Her career marched on, and in 1977, Carly performed her first movie-theme, "Nobody Does It Better," from THE SPY WHO LOVED ME, and it became an international smash.

Her sales high continued with 1978's "You Belong To Me" and the album BOYS IN THE TREES, but after the release of her hit "Jesse" in 1980, Carly's career started to wane. Although she released a series of interesting albums in the '80s, none of them were commercial successes. After her divorce from James Taylor, she also retired from performing live.

But then in 1987, Carly wrote the theme for HEARTBURN - "Coming Around Again" - and her career was revitalized. The song was a big hit and the album of the same name was a best-seller and charted for well over a year. By that point, she was a legend and was then able to release albums at a more relaxed pace, which allowed her to be more adventurous in her writing and creativity. Since then, all of her work has been very well received, most notable "Let The River Run," which she wrote for WORKING GIRL and won her her first Oscar.
