When Page turned eighteen, he was asked to write the theme tune of the film Shag and later released it as his first single. Page's self-titled debut album was released by Sire/Warner Bros. Records in November 1988 and contained hits such as "A Zillion Kisses," "Turning Me On," and "A Shoulder to Cry On"

The follow-up album, Paintings In My Mind (which was dedicated to his grandmother) gave Page his first and only No. 1 single in the U.S., "I'll Be Your Everything," a song that was written with and features New Kids on the Block. Other singles that were released from the album after that were "When I Dream of You" and "Turn On The Radio" (another New Kids on the Block collaboration). The album also featured "Don't Give Up on Love," a duet with Latinf freestyle singer Sa-Fire. Sa-Fire & Tommy co-wrote the song, which was released as a single overseas. The two currently remain close friends.
Page's third album was titled From the Heart, and his vocals there showcased a wider range with higher notes than previous efforts. On this album, the ballads were more orchestral. The first single, "Whenever You Close Your Eyes," saw Page working with Michael Bolton and Diane Warren. "Under the Rainbow" and "Madly in Love" were released as singles afterward.
As an appreciation to his fans in Asia, Page released another album, A Friend to Rely On. It contains the duet with Sally Yeh as mentioned above as well as a remake of Nik Kershaw's "Wouldn't it be Good" and a song penned with Donna DeLory (Madonna's backing singer) called "Heaven In Your Eyes." As house music was the current trend, the upbeat songs were produced in such form.
Before releasing his next album, Time, Page replaced Donny Osmond for three months in Andrew Lloyd Webber's Broadway musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
Page concentrated on releasing his other albums after that in Asia, especially after he signed with the Japanese label Pony Canyon Records. He recorded more duets with Asian singers such as Liz Kong (from Hong Kong) and Amy Mastura (from Malaysia).
His latest album, Ten 'Til Midnight is only available for sale on-line, which he released spring 2000. It is reported that after completing each record, he carries his walkman along the beach for a listen. If the music moves him, it passes the test. With only one American hit, Tommy Page still made quite a career for himself, releasing seven full-length albums in 12 years.
In 2003 he put out a DVD collection of his music videos, which is on sale through his website www.tommy-page.com. He is currently working in A&R at Warner Music Group. Page is one of the producers on Tennessee Girl's album Guilty Pleasures. He is also a friend of Tiffany; the two recorded "Close Our Eyes" together. He is also currently working with the band V Factory.
Page also appeared on an episode of Full House singing to Stephanie Tanner on her birthday but began courting DJ, much to Stephanie's dismay.
