Art Garfunkel Net Worth: Art Garfunkel is an American singer/songwriter who has a net worth of $45 million dollars. Born November 5, 1941 in Queens, New York City, New York, Art Garfunkel is best known as one half of the folk duo Simon & Garfunkel, along with Paul Simon. His solo music career includes a top 10 hit, three top 20 hits, six top 40 hits, 14 Adult Contemporary top 30 singles, five Adult Contemporary number ones, two UK number ones and a People's Choice Award. Within both his solo and collaborative work, Garfunkel has earned six Grammys, including the Lifetime Achievement Award. In 1990, he and former musical partner Paul Simon were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. When he was a child, his father bought him a wire recorder and Garfunkel spent his afternoons singing, recording and playing it back, so he could listen for flaws and learn how to improve. At his bar mitzvah in 1954, Garfunkel sang as a cantor, performing over four hours of his repertoire to his family. He met his future singing partner Paul Simon in the sixth grade at PS 164 when they were both cast in the elementary school graduation play, Alice in Wonderland. It has been said by Garfunkel that Simon first became interested in singing after hearing Garfunkel sing a rendition of Nat King Cole's Too Young in a school talent show. Between 1956 and 1962, the two performed together as Tom & Jerry, occasionally performing at school dances. Their idols were The Everly Brothers, whom they imitated in their use of close two-part vocal harmony. In 1957, Simon and Garfunkel (Tom & Jerry) recorded the song Hey, Schoolgirl and the single reached number 49 on the pop charts. Simon & Garfunkel rose to fame in 1965 with their hit single The Sound of Silence, which went on to gain them even greater fame when the song was used on the soundtrack of the iconic coming-of-age film The Graduate (1967).
