SSG Presents Thomas Johnston!

Enzo's , 382 US-46, Budd Lake, New Jersey 07828

Proving you're never too old and it's never too late, Thomas Johnston crafts his original songs by combining Americana with a touch of Irish music.

His debut CD, "Highway Signs and Highway Lines", was released in March 2013. A collection of twelve original songs in the genre of "Irish-American", the record tells tales of Irish history as well as personal stories from the heart and soul.

“Thomas writes songs with clean, unassuming melodies linked to powerful lyrics...since I first heard "Highway Signs and Highway Lines", I've revisited it numerous times...and I shall without a doubt return many more times." ~ Tim Carroll of Folkwords

Thomas Johnston's second CD, "Table For One" was released in November 2014, and was named one of the Best of 2014 by the Irish Voice!

His 3rd record, "More Songs to Sing", is complete and is making its way out to the world!! Early reviews are claiming "More Songs to Sing" is the best of his three records!
