Thomas Headon / fanclubwallet
Please see the events listing for upcoming events.
Twenty-year-old Thomas Headon was born in London. At age 5 his family moved to Melbourne, Australia, where he grew up.
As a young teenager he started posting cover versions of his favorite songs on YouTube, which helped him to start building an international fanbase. Influenced by the likes of Coldplay, the 1975, Harry Styles, Tyler the Creator, and Rex Orange County, Headon also started writing and producing original songs.
In 2019 he moved back to London to pursue his career in music and released his self-written and self-produced debut single, "Grace," followed by "Clean Me Up." His debut EP, The Greatest Hits, has gained over 22 million streams.
As a follow-up, Thomas released his second EP in September 2020. The Goodbye EP included the singles "Loving You," "Focus," "UrbanAngel1999," and "Cut and Bleach My Hair." All tracks received high praises and plays from radio, including triple J Unearthed in Australia and BBC Radio1 in the United Kingdom.
In late 2020 he was one of the first artists to curate Spotifyʼs Our Generation playlist and triple j named him a "seriously impressive force in pop music" and a "star on the rise."
During his latest UK tour, Thomas sold out his first-ever headline shows in London, two nights at Heaven (1,000-capacity each). With a constantly growing, loyal, and highly-engaged fanbase on social media and more music to be released later this summer, not even a lockdown can stop him.
Named in honor of a Dennis the Menace wallet that belonged to her father, fanclubwallet began as a catch-all for Judge's lo-fi musical musings, created using children's keyboards in an effort to directly conjure her intended sound in as uncomplicated a manner as possible.
In early 2020, a well-received cover of the Talking Heads' "This Must Be the Place" gave Judge the confidence to release a steady stream of singles. With each successive track, fanclubwallet carefully carved out a dedicated following (including super agent Tom Windish, who asked to manage the up-and-coming act) while finding placement on such esteemed playlists as Spotify's New Music Friday and Lorem.
With Hurt is Boring, fanclubwallet is set to charm a generation that's been stuck at home, evaluating old relationships and generally being bored of being bored.
As Judge sagely points out on the EP's titular closing track, "Hurt is boring, but so is happiness. And I think that I like one more than the other."
