About Michael Johnson Harpist

Michael Johnson (Biography)


"…This music is so deeply moving and so ethereal in its beauty..."
3PBS Melbourne


Michael Johnson has been composing and recording since 1976. Originally performing as a rock musician in Melbourne music venues, he later moved to utilising his skills as a multi instrumental performer, touring with a trio in Victoria and South Australia. Here he was introduced to the harp and never looked back....

He is the instigator of Lyrebird Music (the recording label) and Twilight Music (the concert series).

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. Michael should be familiar to audiences throughout Australia. His compositions are regularly aired on national radio and television.

He has been the resident musician at a number of locations (Including Healesville Sanctuary). For over a decade Michael has been stationed at the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne, 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.

He has performed alongside an eclectic combination of artists such as Tony Gould, Imogen Manins, David Jones, Wilber Wilde, Gary Young, Judy Jacques, Kavisha Mazzella, Victorian State Opera, James Morrison, Judith Durham, David Herschfelder, The Melbourne Welsh Male Choir, Jane Rutter, Suzanne Johnston, Donald Cant...
