Biography

Brickell was born in Oak Cliff, Dallas, Texas. She attended high school at the Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts in Dallas. She attended Southern Methodist University until she joined a band and could no longer focus on anything but songwriting.

Her father, Eddie Brickell, "the Fort Worth Southpaw", was inducted into the Texas State Bowling Association Hall of Fame in 1988.

Brickell married singer-songwriter Paul Simon on May 30, 1992. Brickell was performing on NBC's Saturday Night Live on Saturday November 5, 1988 when she noticed Simon standing in front of the cameraman. "Even though I'd performed the song hundreds of times in clubs, he made me forget how the song went 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.'" Brickell and Simon have three children.
