Welcome

Welcome!  I'm Thomas Johnston, a singer/songwriter from Whitehouse Station, New Jersey, USA.  Please enjoy the site, especially the music.  My original songs are in the genre of "IrishAmericana", a blend of Americana, Folk, and Irish music.  My third CD, "More Songs to Sing", will soon be available on this site, but it is available on CDBaby, ITunes, Amazon, Spotify, and, of course, at my shows.  You can listen to the first single, "I Hope You Know", right here on the site.

My 2nd CD, "Table For One", released in November 2014, has been widely applauded!  It is the follow-up to my 2013 debut record, "Highway Signs and Highway Lines", which was named one of the Best CD's of 2013 by the Irish Voice newspaper in New York City ("Table for One" received the same honor for 2014).

Please check the site for my live performance schedule.  I've been busy, playing 71 shows in 2014 and 96 in 2015!  In 2016 and 2017, I played over 100 shows in each year.  2018 promises to be a very special musical year!

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

Here's What's Happening

More Songs to Sing 

I am so excited for the new album!  It is coming along quite well; just a couple of more parts to put in before the final mix.  Big thanks to Brian Ostering for his recording and mixing work as well as his bass guitar tracks, Alicia Van Sant for her beautiful harmonies and her tambourine track, and Taylor Hope for incredible fiddle tracks.  Of course, big thanks to my son Stephen for his production work.  It won't be long!!!

Songs for the New Album 

The songs for the new CD, "More Songs to Sing", have been chosen and the song list is complete: 12 original songs and one very special cover song!  Let the recording begin!

Back in the Studio Again! 

It has been awhile, but I will be going back into the studio to record my third solo album!!!  The new record is titled "More Songs to Sing", and I should have it out in the Spring of 2017!  The CD will have 12 new original songs, plus one very special cover song.  I am thrilled with the writing for this new record, and the response to the songs I have played out has been overwhelmingly positive!  I'll be posting reports about the album's progress.  I can't wait to share this record with the world!

Hot Fun in the Summertime 

Summer so far has been hot; temperature-wise and music-wise.  New venues, new songs, new fans; summer has been a whole lot of fun. I've added more shows, so please check the show list on this site. And thanks for supporting my music!

The Many Shows of Summer 

WOW!  The shows keep getting booked!  Looks like I'll hit at least 50 shows for May thru September!  I am so grateful to all the amazing venues who have given me opportunities to perform.  I'm especially excited for the new venues I have come across.  Check the show listing for what's coming up.
