Profile Bio Text
Edie Brickell (born March 10, 1966 in Oak Cliff, Dallas, Texas) is an American singer-songwriter.
In the late 1980s Brickell was the lead singer of the folk rock group Edie Brickell & New Bohemians, whose 1988 debut album Shooting Rubberbands at the Stars was a critical and commercial success. The band`s follow-up album, Ghost of a Dog (1990), fared less well. As a solo artist, Brickell released Picture Perfect Morning (1994) and Volcano (2003). In 2006 she reunited with some of the original members of New Bohemians and they released the album Stranger Things.
Brickell had a role as a folk singer in the 1989 film, Born on the Fourth of July. Her version of Bob Dylan`s A Hard Rain`s A-Gonna Fall is featured on the film`s soundtrack. Many computer users might know her from the Good Times video which was included as part of the multimedia samples on the Windows 95 installation CD-ROM.
Brickell married singer-songwriter Paul Simon in 1992. They have three children. Brickell was performing "What I Am" on NBC`s Saturday Night Live when she noticed Simon standing in front of the cameraman. "He made me mess the song up when I looked at him," she said with a smile. "We can show the kids the tape and say, `Look, that`s when we first laid eyes on each other.`"
