Welcome!  I'm Thomas Johnston, an Americana singer/songwriter from Whitehouse Station, New Jersey, USA.  Please enjoy the site, especially the music.  My original songs are influenced by classic Americana, Folk, Rock, and Irish music.  All three of my CD's are available on CDBaby, ITunes, Amazon, Spotify, and, of course, at my shows.  You can listen to the single, "I Hope You Know", right here on the site.

2018 was a fantastic year!  After playing 105 shows in each 2016 and 2017, I had the great fortune of playing 152 shows in 2018!  2019 is setting up to be another busy year of bringing my music out to a whole lot of folks!  Please check the site for my live performance schedule.

In 2019, I am not only planning to release my fourth CD, but in addition, due to much request, I am also planning the release of a Christmas album!  It's going to be a busy 2019!

Thank you for listening to my music...Slainte!!!

My First New Song of 2019! 

Well, that didn't take long.  This morning, I wrote my first new song of the new year!  "With These Hands" could be one of my best!  Hopefully an indication of many great songs to follow.

What a Year 2018 Was!!!

An Amazing Six Years 

This weekend marks six years as a solo performer!  It has been a wonderful ride.  During this time, I have released three CD's (I'm now writing for the 4th) and played 538 shows!  I am so grateful to everyone who has booked me or came out to a show or bought a CD or had me on their radio show or contributed to my records or said a kind word about my music.  And there's a lot more music to come!  What matters most to me is that folks enjoy my music.   Feeling most appreciative!

On the Radio! 

Tonight, I will be the guest for Tyler Gran's "Night Moves" show on WDVR, 89.7 FM, out of Sergeantsville, NJ!  We'll be talking about my music journey and stories behind some of my songs.  Their website is www.wdvrfm.org.  The show starts at 10:00PM!
