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, Country, 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.

2019 was another fantastic year!  After playing 105 shows in each 2016 and 2017, I had the great fortune of playing around 300 shows from 2018 thru 2019!  The new year is already shaping up to be a special one.  Please check my shows schedule on the site, and join the emil list.

In 2020, I am not only planning to release my fourth CD, "Traveling Companions",  I am also planning the release of a Christmas album!  It's going to be a busy 2020!

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

Here's What's Happening

A Terrible Loss 


Surprise! I'm in the News! 

Many thanks to Brandon Gould at nj.com for this article about my song, "You Are Heroes", for the medical heroes at Hunterdon Medical Center in Flemington NJ and everywhere.  The article can be found at www.nj.com/coronavirus/2020/04/watch-award-winning-performer-sings-original-song-for-medical-heroes.html


Another Facdbook Live Show! 

This evening at 6:00, I will be performing on Facebook (www.facebook.com/thomas.johnston.7564).  I'll be playing some of my songs, plus a few covers of songs recorded by my favorite female performers.  Please tune in!

Thank You to Hunterdon Healthcare 

My heartfelt thanks to Hunterdon Healthcare in Flemington NJ!  They posted a slide show video on Facebook of photo tributes they received from folks in the community.  I am humbled and honored they used my song "You Are Heroes" as the backdrop to the video!

Video of "You Are Heroes" Added 

Yes, the video for my new song, "You Are Heroes", is right here on my site!  I wrote this song to thank the wonderful women and men on the front lines of Hunterdon Medical Center and the Hunterdon Healthcare System in Flemington NJ.  Please enjoy, and please support your local hospitals and medical centers.

A New Song for the Brave Medical Heroes 

I recently wrote a new song titled "You Are Heroes", dedicated to the brave women and men on the front lines at Hunterdon Medical Center and Hunterdon Healthcare System in Flemington NJ, and all of the healthcare professionals taking care of those with COVID-19.  A video of the song can be found on my Facebook page, www.facebook.com/thomas.johnston.7564, and my Facebook music page, www.facebook.com/thomasjohnstonmusic.  We can't thank all these heroes enough for the work they are doing in these challenging times!

Strange Days Indeed 

John Lennon said it best.  Yes, this week's shows have been cancelled.  We'll see how things progress as we head toward April.  In the meantime, I am working on doing some live performances on Facebook and will announce those soon.  Plus, more videos on Facebook of me performing songs from "Traveling Companions".  Together, we will all get though this.  Thank you for your support of my music.  Stay healthy, folks!

Another Project! 

First, my 4th solo CD titled "Traveling Companions".  Then, a Christmas EP.  And now, another project is in the works!  I am writing songs for an EP (or CD, you never know) titled "Commentary"!  Goodness knows, there is plenty to comment about in the world.  I actually have four songs already written for this new project.  Keeping busy in 2020!

Back in the Studio Soon 

Yes, I am excited to soon be returning to the studio!  This time will be to record my 4th solo CD, "Traveling Companions".  The CD will have 12 new songs, some very emotional, given the adversities that had to be overcome the last couple of years.  It will be a stripped down, raw production.  I'll be posting updates up to release.  Can't wait to share these new songs with everyone!

And Then There Were Twelve 

The final song for the upcoming new CD, "Traveling Companions", has been finished!  Doing a bunch of rehearsing before the times comes to record.  I am very much looking forward to releasing my 4th solo record!
