 Carly Simon Biography

Carly Simon is a singer-songwriter, musician, and author known for "You're So Vain."

She first rose to fame in the 1970s with a string of hit records; her 13 Top 40 U.S. hits include "Anticipation," "You Belong to Me," "Coming Around Again," and her four Gold certified singles "Jesse," "Mockingbird," a duet with James Taylor, the #1 "You're So Vain," and #2 "Nobody Does It Better" from the 1977 James Bond film The Spy Who Loved Me.

After a brief stint with her sister Lucy Simon as duo group the Simon Sisters, she found great success as a solo artist with her 1971 self-titled debut album Carly Simon, which won her the Grammy Award for Best New Artist, and spawned her first Top 10 single, "That's the Way I've Always Heard It Should Be."

Her second album, Anticipation, followed later that year and became an even greater success, earning Simon another Grammy nomination and later being certified Gold by the RIAA. She achieved international fame the following year with the release of her third album, No Secrets, which sat firmly at #1 on the Billboard 200 for five weeks, was certified Platinum, and spawned the worldwide hit "You're So Vain," for which she received three Grammy nominations, including Record of the Year and Song of the Year. With her 1988 hit "Let the River Run," from the film Working Girl, she became the first artist to win a Grammy Award, an Academy Award, and a Golden Globe Award for a song composed and written, as well as performed, entirely by a single artist.

Over the course of her career, Simon has amassed 24 Billboard Hot 100 charting singles, 28 Billboard Adult Contemporary charting singles, and won two Grammy Awards, from 14 nominations.

Simon is remembered as one of the quintessential singer-songwriters of the '70s. She has a contralto vocal range, and has cited Odetta as a significant influence.

Simon was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1994. In 1995 and 1998, respectively, she received the Boston Music Awards Lifetime Achievement and a Berklee College of Music Honorary Doctor of Music Degree. She was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame for "You're So Vain" in 2004 and awarded the ASCAP Founders Award in 2012.

Simon is also a breast cancer survivor, having been diagnosed with the disease in 1997 and undergoing surgery and chemotherapy that same year.

Simon is an author, having written numerous children's books, including "Amy the Dancing Bear," "The Boy of the Bells," and "Midnight Farm." She is also the author of 2015's "Boys in the Trees: A Memoir" and 2019's "Touched by the Sun: My Friendship with Jackie," which details her friendship with former First Lady Jackie Kennedy Onassis.
