Welcome

Welcome!  I'm Thomas Johnston, a singer/songwriter from Whitehouse Station, New Jersey, USA.  Please enjoy the site, especially the music.  My original songs are in the genre of "IrishAmericana", a blend of Americana, Folk, and Irish music.  My third CD, "More Songs to Sing", will soon be available on this site, but it is available on CDBaby, ITunes, Amazon, Spotify, and, of course, at my shows.  You can listen to the first single, "I Hope You Know", right here on the site.

My 2nd CD, "Table For One", released in November 2014, has been widely applauded!  It is the follow-up to my 2013 debut record, "Highway Signs and Highway Lines", which was named one of the Best CD's of 2013 by the Irish Voice newspaper in New York City ("Table for One" received the same honor for 2014).

Please check the site for my live performance schedule.  I've been busy, playing 71 shows in 2014 and 96 in 2015!  In 2016 and 2017, I played over 100 shows in each year.  2018 promises to be a very special musical year!

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