Eleven songs have been chosen for the much-anticipated 4th solo CD, "Traveling Companions". One more song slot to fill! Then, Ill be working with my producer (and son) Stephen to finish the arrangements and get them in the right order. I am very excited to once more begin the journey of making a record!
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!!!
