Thomas David “Tommy” Roe (born May 9, 1942) is a retired American rock and pop singer-songwriter.
Best-remembered for his hits “Sheila” (1962) and “Dizzy” (1969), Roe was “widely perceived as one of the archetypal bubblegum artists of the late 1960s, but cut some pretty decent rockers along the way, especially early in his career,” wrote the AllMusic journalist Bill Dahl.
On February 7, 2018, Roe officially announced his retirement on his Facebook page with this statement:
Today I am announcing my retirement. I have so many great memories of the music and of my fans who have supported me through the years. Fifty five years to be exact. What a gift it has been for me to share this time with you. I hope my music will continue to bring a smile to your hearts and joy to your life. …I will stay in touch through our Facebook page. But for now I am stepping out of the spotlight from scheduled concerts and interviews. Thank you again for your loyal support. I love you all, and may God Bless you. Tommy
A resident of Atlanta, Georgia, and Beverly Hills, California, he was married to actress Josette Banzet until her death in 2020. He has a daughter named Cynthia, three grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren who all live in Georgia.
