Layton & Johnstone

TURNER LAYTON d1978 & CLARENCE JOHNSTONE d1953. American vocal and piano duo of the 1920-1930s, consisting of Turner Layton (baritone and piano) and Clarence “Tandy” Johnstone (tenor). After forming in New York City in 1922, they moved to England two years later and met with immediate success. Between 1924 and 1935, they sold over 10 million records. They appeared at top venues in London, Paris and across Europe and gave command performances for the British royal family on numerous occasions. They also appeared frequently on BBC Radio. The duo disbanded in 1935 after Clarence Johnstone became involved in a highly publicized divorce scandal.
