Thomas Headon

Sunday | Main Stage
Thomas Headon

Born in London and raised in Melbourne, Thomas Headon dreamed of moving back to the city to pursue music and was told by his mom that he had a year to get a “proper job,” otherwise he would have to return home. Arriving in London just before the pandemic hit, Thomas started to build a community online – blowing up on TikTok with 16M likes and nearly 450K followers to date – with his off-kilter live sessions, tongue-in-cheek charm and remarkable songwriting ability. Learning to write and produce on his own in his late teens, Thomas has already released self-written and self-produced debut EP, The Greatest Hits, and dropped The Goodbye EP last year, amassing 55 million streams worldwide, all before his 21st birthday.

Building an incredibly loyal fanbase over lockdown, Thomas’ blend of playful alternative pop that speaks to the Gen-Z experience has been compared to the likes of the 1975’s Matty Healy, and critically praised by Triple J, naming him a “seriously impressive force in pop music.” Thomas performed a charmingly energetic live session on Jack Saunders’ BBC Radio 1 show, which followed his “Living Room Shows” tour, where he played an intimate acoustic series to thousands of fans across the UK. The 21-year-old has also collaborated with American singer-songwriter Lizzy McAlpine on his single “Bored,” as well as Chloe Moriondo and Alfie Templeton on the brilliant “Dizzy,” which racked up praise from Billboard, E!, Entertainment Tonight, FLOOD Magazine and more.
