Tommy’s music can be heard in 55 films, 39 television shows and numerous commercials. Most recently, the film Finding Steve McQueen with Forest Whitaker will feature four of Tommy’s songs. BMI lauded Tommy for his success with the presentation of five “Million-Air” awards for his music being played more than 21 million times on air. Tommy’s critically acclaimed autobiography, Me, The Mob and The Music, is on Rolling Stone’s Top 25 Best Music Memoirs List and is now in production for a major motion picture with producer Barbara Defina, whose credits include Goodfellas, Casino, Cape Fear, Color of Money, Age of Innocence and Silence. The screenplay is written by Matthew Stone, whose credits include Intolerable Cruelty, Man of the House and Big Trouble. Tommy now has his own show on SiriusXM Satellite Radio’s ‘60s on 6 channel: “Gettin’ Together with Tommy James” every Sunday evening from 5-8 p.m. Tommy is an inductee of the prestigious New Jersey Hall of Fame, and his life-size hologram can be viewed at the Hall of Fame exhibit in Newark Airport. He was also given the Pittsburgh Legend award and was voted the Jukebox Artist of the Year by the Amusement & Music Operators Association of New York. Now entering his 51st year in the music business, he just finished his new album, ALIVE!, which will be released in April. Tommy continues to tour around the country!
