About Tommy Roe:
Tommy Roe, one of the most influential and foundational figures in popular music and the “Father of Bubblegum Pop,” has had four Gold Records: “Sheila,” “Dizzy,” “Sweet Pea” and “Jam Up and Jelly Tight.” He has also had 4 Billboard top 100 Albums. He is a member of the Rockabilly Hall of Fame, The Iowa Rock and Roll Association Hall of Fame, as well as the Georgia Music Hall of Fame. In his book “From Cabbagetown to Tinseltown,” Roecorrelates his journey to Hollywood with the historical events of that time period that were changing and shaping America and, in turn, the music industry. In the spring of 1966 with his release of the smash hit, “Sweet Pea,” spring breakers started to hit the beaches in Florida, and they embraced the new sound that Tommy had created called Bubblegum. However, the media was not as receptive as his fans were to the new genre Roe had created. They began voicing their opinion by malevolently labeling him “The King of Bubblegum.” More recently, Roe scored big with his hits, “Devil’s Soul Pile” and “Memphis Me.” His new music parts ways with his expected style instead showcasing his talent as both a singer and a songwriter. Roe hasn’t let the success of his career stop him from doing what he loves. He continues to write new songs and perform around the globe.
