Thomas Headon is our One To Watch this week.

Melbournian Thomas Headon moved from Australia to London in his late teens to chase a music career.

Speaking to SPIN's Sarina Bellissimo, he said he made a deal with his mother that he could try music for a year. If it didn't work out, he could return to Oz and go back to uni.

But two and a half years later, he's still living his dream in London.

Thomas got his start by making YouTube videos. When he joined TikTok, he already had a small following but things really took off for him.

In a way, the interest that record labels had in him seemed to have an air of 'right place, right time.'

He was at the start of his career when labels started realising there was music talent on TikTok. He's now signed to Warner Music UK.

Thomas is touring at the moment and managed to sell out Dublin's The Academy.

Live music is something he loves – which is why he's delighted to be supporting Sigrid on her European and UK tour in 2022.
