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

And, We're Off!!! 

2016 is here, and the shows have started!  The goal is to top 100 shows for the year, and I am so grateful for all the opportunities to perform that are coming.  I'm also busy writing for album #3: "Character Studies and Self-Portraits", to be released later this year.  More news to come.  Thank you for supporting my music!

A New CD for 2016! 

Autumn has arrived, and the show schedule has slowed down a little.  Time to ramp up the songwriting for the next CD, "Character Studies and Self Portraits", which will be released in 2016.  I already have four songs written for it.  I view this record as a very important one, and a lot of time and effort will go into it.  I love the process of creating a quality record; I know I'll enjoy putting this record together for all to listen to.

What A Summer!!! 

I'm finishing up a 14-show July, and will be starting a 15-show August!!!  Many thanks to all the wonderful venues for all the chances to play, and to everybody who comes out to the shows!  I am so grateful!

All These Shows!!! 

We're FINALLY out of winter, and the show calendar is exploding for spring and summer!  On pace to surpass the 71 shows I played last year.  I am SO GRATEFUL for all the support!
