Michael J Johnson
BIO
Michael J Johnson is a mix of extraordinary talent and a genuine down-to-earth attitude rarely seen in a person with such an astonishingly diverse range of musical aptitudes.
With over twenty years experience as a professional guitarist and vocalist, Michael has been blessed to work along side such “heavies” as Jon Secada (EMI), Lari White (RCA), Dawnn Lewis (A Different World), Take Six, Bob Dorough and Kevin Nealon (Saturday Night Live). In the studio he performed soundtracks for Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, The Orange Bowl Half-Time Show, CPP Belwin (Warner Bros.), and album projects at The Record Plant (formerly Criteria Studios) in Miami, Florida.
An independent certified ProTools engineer, Michael has produced over fifteen nationally distributed acts whose musical genres span from hardcore punk to hip/hop to classical. At South Beach Studio (Miami) and New River Studio (Fort Lauderdale,) he recorded and produced rock, jazz and hip hop albums for national clients and local independent bands.
As a member of ASCAP, he is a nationally recognized songwriter whose independent rock releases have been featured in films such as “Night Becomes Day” and “Samsara.” Summit Records houses one of his finest jazz compositions, “His Song” and country, gospel and industrial song credits to his name can be found on iTunes. As an arranger he has nationally published works including “Celebrate”, “Straight No Chaser” and a jazz vocal arrangement of Prince’s “New Power Generation”.
Well rounded and master of all things musical doesn’t even begin to describe his passion for this field. Michael also has an affinity for teaching and mentoring young minds. As an educator, Dr. Michael Johnson, served as Director of Commercial Music at Greenville College for six years, where he managed the degree programs in songwriting, digital recording and performance.
Known as “Dr. J” to his students and even some of his friends, Michael received his doctorate in Studio Music and Jazz from the University of Miami in 1999. He currently resides in Boston, Massachusetts, and is an Associate Professor at Berklee College of Music in the Contemporary Writing and Production program.
