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 upcoming 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 after release.  Physical CD's will be purchased in the STORE section after release.

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.

In Summer 2021, I am planning to release my 6th album (not yet titled),  and I may also plan to release a "Best Of" record in the Fall of 2021.  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!!!

Here's What's Happening

Update on "Traveling Companions" 

Working on recording the additional tracks for harmonica and bodhran.  My son (and co-producer) Stephen finished the artwork for the cover; it looks FANTASTIC!  Not much longer, and we'll be mixing and mastering!  Stay tuned!

Update on "Traveling Companions" 

All lead vocal and acoustic guitar tracks have been recorded!  Rehearsing harmonica and bodhran parts.  So far, this project sounds great!

Update on "Traveling Companions" 

Lead vocals and acoustic guitar now recorded for four of the twelve songs.  Very happy with the progress so far.  My son Stephen and I are having a blast working on "Traveling Companions" in our SonDad Studios!

Update on "Traveling Companions" 

A good recording session this morning!  Lead vocals and guitar for "Caroline", as well as the title track, "Traveling Companions".  Once again, a good job by my son Stephen on the board.  Very excited for this record!!!

Another Good Recording Session 

Back at SonDad Studios this morning; another good seesion!  Fine tuning the sound for strummed guitar songs and finger-picked guitar songs.  Stephen doing a fine job at the board.  Back to work tomorrow!

So It Begins... 

A productive evning at SonDad Studios!  Reviewed the notes from the "On This Christmas Day" sessions.  Made some adjustments to the settings to get a fuller sound.  Tomorrow, Stephen and I will do a couple of demo recordings to make sure everything is just right.  Then, the fun begins.  We are very enthusiastic for the recording of "Traveling Companions"!

It's a Brand New Year! 

Wishing all of you a very Happy and Healthy 2021!  I am looking forward to releasing at least two new records in 2021.  Of course, I hope to be able to bring my music to live audiences soon.  Thank you all so much for your support of my music!

Tracks and More Tracks 

Every track from my CD's "More Songs to Sing" and "Table for One" are available for download in the Music section of the site.  Thank you for your support!
