Thomas Allen "Tommy" Heath (born March 31, 1947) is the lead singer, rhythm guitarist, and occasional keyboardist of Tommy Tutone, a 1980s rock band most famous for their top 5 hit, "867-5309/Jenny." A common misconception is that Tommy Tutone is the name of the lead singer; it is the name of the band. The name of the band developed from the original name "Tommy and the Tu-tones" to merely Tommy Tutone. He left the band after the release of their third album, 1983's National Emotion. In 1994, he released an album that included tracks recorded after his Tommy Tutone days, titled Nervous Love.

Tommy Heath became a computer analyst and software engineer and moved to Portland, Oregon.[1][2] He married his girlfriend, Lisa Scholtz, on June 9, 2008 while on vacation in Lake Tahoe, California.[3]
