Michael Johnson has been composing and recording since 1976 and has been performing in major concert venues and festivals throughout Australia. He plays various instruments but is probably best known for his work on the harp. His concerts and recordings feature this instrument but also include percussion, guitar, piano and various classical and world music instruments.
He has been the resident musician at the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne for over a decade, performing in the Harp the Gardens recitals and Twilight Music concerts, providing his music for thousands of overseas guests and visitors to the gardens.
As well as a concert performer, Michael has been working in the field of music for meditation. His tranquil harp music has been an integral part of the Mindfulness Music program at the Gawler Foundation for over twenty years. His compositions are regularly aired on national radio and television.
