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", has been a success!  It contains 12 original songs, all recorded at the new SonDad Studios (founded by myself and my son, Stephen)!  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, Apple Music, 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 and 2021, but I am looking forward to a busier show schedule in 2022.  Please check my shows schedule on the site, and join the email list.

Before the end of 2022, I am planning to release my 6th album, "The Troubadour"!  That record 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 2022!

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

Update on "The Troubadour" 

A great evening of song rehearsal as I get closer to returning to SonDad Studios to put together my 5th full-length record, "The Troubadour"!  Worked on 10 of the 12 songs, and I am so excited with how they have evolved!  My son and co-producer Stephen are planning to release a couple of singles before we put the album out.  I'll be posting regular updates on the progress of the record right here.  Thank you for your support!

Work Has Ramped Up on "The Troubadour"! 

The writing is almost finished for my upcoming 5th full-length studio record, "The Troubadour"!  I am very excited to get back into our SonDad Studios in the second half of September to begin recording.  My son, Stephen, will be back at the board handling the recording, while I will handle the mixing and mastering.  I have a real good feeling about this one!  The goal has always been to make the next record better than the last, and we've succeeded each time.  We are targeting a release just in time for the holidays!  More updates to come.  Thanks you for your support! 

More Shows! 

The show schedule is beginning to fill in!  Please check the calendar of events to see where I'll be playing next.  Thank you for your support!


Well, how about that!  Today I found out I was voted "Hunterdon County NJ's Favorite Entertainer" in a poll conducted by Hunterdon Happening Magazine!

My heartfelt thanks to all who voted for me.  I am so happy to know there are a bunch of people who enjoy the music I do!

New Video! 

I put a new video up on the site.  It is an introduction to my upcoming single, "The Effect You Have on Me".  Enjoy!


Heading Back to the Studio! 

It is time to head back to SonDad Studios to begin recording the upcoming single of my new song, "The Effect You Have on Me".  I've played this song at a few shows, and the audience response has been extremely positive!  My son and co-producer, Stephen, will be at the board.  After the success and great reviews of my last album, "Traveling Companions", I am very excited to return to recording, mixing and mastering!  Once it's finished, you'll be able to hear it on this site!  Thank you for your support!

Plans for 2022!
