He has received accolades for his music compositions and his studio production. He has five solo albums to his credit for which he has multiple nominations for East Coast Music Association awards.

Johnstone said of his music, “It is a search for our common voice, a voice that speaks to the heart. Whether I am playing a Gaelic air or a jazz standard I bring a deep love and respect for the traditions within each musical genre. For me, music is a call to live passionately, to celebrate tradition while exploring the joy of creating new forms of musical expression.”
