The storied music career of 2012 ASCAP Founders Award honoree Carly Simon began in earnest with her solo debut in 1971, which yielded the top-ten hit “That’s the Way I’ve Always Heard It Should Be” and earned her the Best New Artist Grammy. Over the next few years her star would rise on the strength of huge singles like “Anticipation,” “Legend in Your Own Time” and especially “You’re So Vain,” which hit #1 on the U.S. pop charts and catapulted Simon to superstardom. Simon’s unflinching, sophisticated songs continued to connect with listeners throughout the 70's – her singles "The Right Thing to Do" and “You Belong to Me” became huge critical and commercial successes. In the 80’s, Simon began a string of contributions to film and TV soundtracks. Her song “Let the River Run” from Working Girl earned her a Grammy, Oscar and Golden Globe. And while Simon has never stopped recording new albums and contributing songs to visual media, she’s also branched out into opera (Romulus Hunt), acted in film and TV and written a series of children’s books. In this unique session, Carly Simon will open a window into her songwriting process. In addition to an in-depth conversation on her creative journey, some early demos of her songs will be played and discussed, offering a rare glimpse of the creative evolution of one of the most inspired songwriters of our time.
