Harper Simon: Folk-Rock Royalty

Son of the legendary Paul Simon, Harper Simon has inherited his dad's knack for pulling together beautiful melodies. But Simon has tread his own musical path: His dreamy, folksy melodies are wholly his.

Simon was on stage by the age of 12 as a guest on his father's famous '80s tour in support of Graceland. This fall, the younger Simon's solo debut finally surfaced. Earning comparisons to the work of Bob Dylan and Elliott Smith, the album showcases traditional gospel influences, Americana, rock and, of course, folk.
