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!!!

Here's What's Happening

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.

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!
