You know, a lot of people think that Darren Hayes is my main man when it comes to favourite male singers. But you know what, he’s not. I know – Shock! Horror! Blasphemy! Actually, when it comes to favourite male singers of all time – my favourite has to be the man above – and his name is Tommy Page. It seems almost appropriate that I revisit Tommy Page today. He was a huge American and Asian wonder boy back in the early 90’s and has even collaborated with Tiffany and toured with New Kids On The Block and that my friends was a huge part of my "electric youth" (did you get that?).
Tommy Page today is a man behind the scenes and is VP of A&R at Warner Brothers records and is helping to shape the careers of High School Musical’s Ashley Tisdale, new boyband V Factory and sassy girl group Tiffany Affair. Even though he’s stepped out of the limelight and gone behind the scenes, he will forever be a huge part of my life.
He’s recently launched his MySpace page with a plethora of new photos and some free downloads and I have to say it – he’s totally still gets me – years later. The voice, the looks, and above all – he’s still a nice guy. I have managed to meet Tommy a few times in this life and he’s always been uber lovely.
There are welcomed rumors going around that he might be doing something new musically and that leaves me very very very (did I say very?) excited. Check out the free downloads on his MySpace page of classic tracks "Like Air", "Places In My Heart" and his brilliant cover of "Missing You". Tommy also holds the esteemed privilege of writing and performing my favourite song of all time called "A Shoulder To Cry On" which if you don’t own, you must go find it and download it now. His last official album "Ten Til Midnight" still remains one of my favourite albums of all time.
Here’s a little vid-e-o from Tommy Page in his prime for "Places In My Heart". Sigh, you got one in mine Tommy. And Tommy – if you’re reading this…I am DYING to interview you. Let’s make beautiful words together! For everything Tommy Page and to discover what the hell I am going on about for you younger readers, visit his official website.
