About Tom Bailey

Recognized by '80s dance-pop, post-punk, and new wave fans alike for his poised delivery as leader of synth pop group the Thompson Twins, Tom Bailey and his band enjoyed international success with songs like "Hold Me Now," "Lay Your Hands on Me," and "King for a Day" -- all U.S. Top Ten hits. Following their disbandment in 1993, Bailey eschewed the nostalgia circuit for over two decades, continuing to write, produce, and make his own music under the radar with other projects. After performing Thompson Twins songs live for the first time in over a quarter-century in 2014, he began touring with their hits and released his first solo album, Science Fiction, in 2018. It embraced his synth pop past without replicating his famous band. ~ Marcy Donelson
