Tommy Roe is a multifaceted, international artist who wrote, co-wrote, and recorded six Top 10 hits between 1962 and 1969. That is more than any single artist/songwriter during that period of the sixties. Tommy has four RIAA Certified Gold Records, and two of his hits, "SHEILA" and "DIZZY", topped the Billboard chart at #1. With a total of 11 records reaching the Billboard Top 40 and 23 Billboard Top 100 chart records, Tommy is considered one of the early pioneers of the American Pop music culture.
In more recent times, Tommy scored big with his hits, "Devil’s Soul Pile" and “Memphis Me”. His new music is a departure from his normal and expected style and showcases his talent as a songwriter and singer. Added to this is his Christmas CD featuring “It’s Now Christmas Day” which is a remake of his 1967 hit, “It’s Now Winters Day”. It is fast becoming a holiday standard. So once again, Tommy finds himself in the spotlight in a new century.
In 2016, Tommy released his autobiography, “From Cabbagetown To Tinseltown…”. In his own words he says quite candidly that it isn’t just his story. It’s history. Throughout the book, Tommy parallels his early days growing up in Atlanta as well as his successful career in the music business with the many cultural and political changes in America during those quite tumultuous times. For example, he paints a vivid picture of how the music and the artists of the 1950s and 60s played a major role in this upheaval and what it was like to be in the middle of it all.
Tommy has had an amazing career, and yet he continues to write songs, make new records, and perform around the globe. He will be touring again this year. So don't miss it! Catch a real pro in action. AN EVENING WITH TOMMY ROE is always fun and sure to put a smile on your face. It is truly a show you won’t soon forget.
