American Singer/Songwriter Tommy Roe had several top hits in the 60’s and 70’s starting in 1962 with “Sheila.” That same year Tommy headlined a British Tour with Chris Montez - their warmup band was called, The Beatles! After that tour other hits followed, “Everybody” (1963) “The Folk Singer” (1964), “Sweet Pea” (1966) “Hooray for Hazel” (1966), Worldwide #1 “Dizzy” (number #1 hit worldwide!) (1969)", “Jam Up and Jelly Tight” (1970). Tommy also wrote other hits for other artists.
He continued to write throughout the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and 2000’s. Many times with songwriting partners Mac Davis and Freddy Weller of Paul Revere and The Raiders fame. Tommy’s catalog continues to be recorded by artists worldwide.
