Ben Johnson is a prolific Austin-based composer who composes, records, and produces piano music.
He recorded his debut album of original piano music, Handcrafted Peace, in early 2013 while completing his final semester at The University of Texas at Austin, where he studied music.
His next album, Sounds of Austin, Texas, weaved together more original piano music with field recordings from locations around Austin. The album quickly became his bestseller after it caught the eye of Austin's NPR station, which interviewed Johnson about the project.
Near the end of 2013, he released a collection of traditional and original Christmas music entitled Peace and Eggnog. His latest project, The Alaska Recordings, was a Kickstarter-funded album inspired by Alaska.
He publishes and performs his work as "Ben Johnson Music Factory."
