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, Folk, 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.

2018 was a fantastic year!  After playing 105 shows in each 2016 and 2017, I had the great fortune of playing 152 shows in 2018!  2019 is setting up to be another busy year of bringing my music out to a whole lot of folks!  Please check the site for my live performance schedule.

In 2019, I am not only planning to release my fourth CD, but in addition, due to much request, I am also planning the release of a Christmas album!  It's going to be a busy 2019!


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