Welcome!  I'm Thomas Johnston, an Americana singer/songwriter from Whitehouse Station, New Jersey, USA.  Please enjoy the site, especially the music.  

I am so happy to announce the upcoming release of my 5th solo album, "Traveling Companions"!!!  It contains 12 original songs, all recorded at the new SonDad Studios!  You will find the album and tracks for download in the MUSIC section of this site after release.  Physical CD's will be purchased in the STORE section after release.

My original songs are influenced by classic Americana, classic Country, classic Rock, and Irish music.  All four of my CD's are available on this site, and they are also on CDBaby, ITunes, Amazon, Spotify, and, of course, at my shows.  You can listen to individual tracks in the MUSIC section.

After playing 105 shows in each 2016 and 2017, I had the great fortune of playing around 300 shows from 2018 thru 2019!  COVID has restricted the number of venues I could play in 2020, but I am looking forward to a busier show schedule in 2021.  Please check my shows schedule on the site, and join the email list.

In Summer 2021, I am planning to release my 6th album (not yet titled),  and I may also plan to release a "Best Of" record in the Fall of 2021.  Both CD's will be recorded at my own SonDad Studios, with my son and producer, Stephen Johnston.  Looking forward to a world beyond COVID, and a whole lot of music, in 2021!

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