Singer-songwriter Michelle Johnson’s style - best described as Carole King meets Ella Fitzgerald - draws from jazz, pop, soft rock, musical theater, gritty blues, & soul.The Las Vegas based singer has recorded, performed, or shared stages with some of the biggest names in entertainment: Paul McCartney, Elton John, Gladys Knight and Barbra Streisand to name a few. Her aesthetic has roots deep in the singer-songwriter tradition with traces of gospel & folk, & echoes of the vocal masters who ruled the radio waves in the days before rock & roll. That voice lights up "I'm All In," the Las Vegas based artist's warm & vibrant latest single, which premiered on September 23, 2019. Once a background singer, she's now stepping into the spotlight, so keep your eyes on her!

In Las Vegas, Michelle Johnson is known as the "First Lady of Jazz", but her sold out shows cover a multitude of genres. After years of singing backups for many musical legends, she is currently recording her first solo album and working on a book about the music business.  

Michelle is also an accomplished producer of corporate events, concerts, workshops and private functions, and she is in the process of developing The Artist Development Academy of Las Vegas. 

Take a tour of her site, featuring pictures, videos, and her ongoing blog, and be sure to check the calendar for upcoming appearances.
