Edie Brickell

“I would never listen to his ideas as far as writing goes.”

    – Edie Brickell, on her husband Paul Simon.

Edie Brickell charmed many people as the winsome lead singer of the New Bohemians – perhaps no one more so than Paul Simon, whom she married in 1992. Brickell released her first, solo album two years later, the little heard or appreciated “Picture Perfect Morning.” But it offers a multitude of small pleasures, not least the contributions of several New Orleans luminaries and, of all people, Barry White, soul music’s doctor of love.
