Welcome

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, classic Country, classic Rock, and Irish music.  All three 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 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!  Although COVID has restricted the number of venues I can play in 2020, I am still booking outdoor gigs.  Please check my shows schedule on the site, and join the email list.

In 2020, I am not only planning to release my fourth CD, "Traveling Companions",  I am also planning the release of a Christmas EP, "On This Christmas Day"!  I have also opened my own recording studio, SonDad Studios, with my son and producer, Stephen Johnston.  Despite the COVID, It's going to be a busy 2020!


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