Michael Johnson (născut la 08 august 1944), este un cantaret american pop , folk, compozitor şi chitarist . El este  cunoscut pentru melodia sa hit 1978 "Bluer Than Blue".  



Johnson a fost născut în micul oraş de Alamosa , Colorado,  a crescut în oraşul metropolitan Denver . El a inceput sa cante la chitara la 13 ani. În 1963, el a început să frecventeze Colorado State University pentru a studia muzica, dar cariera sa a fost trunchiată  atunci când a câştigat un concurs internaţional doi ani mai târziu. Premiul întâi a inclus un contract cu Epic Records . Epic a lansat piesa "Hills", scrisa şi interpretata de către el. A inceput sa faca turnee extinse in cluburi si colegii, găsind un public receptiv oriunde mergea.
Din dorinţa de a perfecţiona abilităţile sale instrumentale, in 1966 el a pornit spre Barcelona, ​​Spania , la Conservator, studiind cu chitaristul clasic eminent, Graciano Tarrago. La întoarcerea sa în Statele Unite, s-a alăturat la Randy Sparks şi a făcut un tur al Orient. Trupa s-a dizolvat în 1967 dar el a semnat cu Chad Mitchell Trio pentru un an.
În 1971, Johnson a semnat cu Atco Records pentru lansarea primul său album, care a fost lansat în 1973. Johnson a produs  următorul său LP în 1975. 
Facand echipa cu Brent Maher şi Steve Gibson, în Nashville , Tennessee , Johnson a creat un demo cu două cântece compuse. 
În august 2007, Johnson a avut cu succes un cvadruplu by-pass intervenţie chirurgicala pe cord.
