Welcome

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 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.  Physical CD's can be purchased in the STORE section.  It has been acclaimed by many as my best album yet!

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.

Before the end of 2021, I am planning to release my 6th album (not yet titled).  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!!!

A Wonderful Review for "Traveling Companions"!!! 

Many thanks to Chip Mergott, an awesome singer/songwriter/musician from Hunterdon County NJ, for his great review of "Traveling Companions".  Chip was discovered in the late 1970's by none other that Bonnie Raitt!  Here's what Chip had to say about my new record:

"I've been listening with avid appreciation...It's a great CD with lots of good songs...Well produced, well performed...Check it out; a local singer/songwriter makes good".

Much appreciated, Chip!
