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 work has begun on my 6th (5th full length) solo album, "The Troubadour"!  It will contain 14 original songs, all to be 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 after release.  Physical CD's can be purchased in the STORE section after release.  It is exciting times, especially coming off the success of 2021's "Traveling Companions"!

My original songs are influenced by classic Americana, classic Country, classic Rock, and Irish music.  All five 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 have been fortunate to have a busier show schedule in 2022.  And 2023 is going to be VERY busy!  Please check my shows schedule on the site, and join the email list.

I am so looking forward to the upcoming release of "The Troubadour"!

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

Here's What's Happening

The Recording of the New Song "A Man Most Blessed"! 

With my son and co-producer Stephen at the board, we recorded acoustic rhythm guitar and vocals for the new song “A Man So Blessed”, a tribute to my Bronx buddy Colin Casey who is battling cancer.  Tonight, I will add an acoustic lead guitar track.  Hope to have it mixed and mastered by mid-week!  This song will be on the upcoming new album, “The Troubadour”.

A New Song...And A New Video 

I just finished a most heartfelt song, “A Man So Blessed”, written for my dear friend, Colin Casey, who is battling cancer.  Colin and I grew up together in the Bronx, NY.  After my family moved to New Jersey, it took 45 years for us to reunite.  Please keep Colin in your prayers as he faces this great challenge.

I recorded a video of me playing the song.  It is here on the website!


This evening, I'll be playing the beautiful Old York Cellars Winery in Ringoes, NJ!  I'll be on from 6:00PM to 9:00PM.  Wine, paella, and live music…a winning combination!



The hard work is paying off!  Seventeen shows scheduled in July 2023!  I am so grateful to all the venues for all the opportunities!  Please check the show schedule, and thank you for your support!


13 in March, 16 in April, 18 in May…and June thru October are filling up!  It's beginning to feel like the late 20-teens, when I averaged between 140 and 150 shows a year!  It is SO GOOD to see people out and enjoying themselves and each other!  Let the good times roll!

A Happy St. Patrick's Day Is Coming! 

I am SO EXCITED to be making my debut on St. Patrick's evening at the awesome Playhouse Deck at the Bucks County Playhouse in New Hope PA!  I'll be playing the songs of the Irish, including my own, from 6:00PM - 9:00PM. Call for reservations at 267-397-6866 and come on and by to celebrate!
