Bryan Johnson was an English singer and actor who represented the United Kingdom in the Eurovision Song Contest 1960 with the song Looking High, High, High.

Having been eliminated in the semi finals of the 1957 UK heats for Eurovision, he later emulated his brother and sister-in-law, Pearl Carr and Teddy Johnson, by coming second in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1960, with "Looking High, High, High". The single reached number 20 in the UK singles chart in April 1960. Johnson also participated in A Song for Europe, the UK qualifying heat for Eurovision in 1961. His song, "A Place in the Country" came fifth.

He was also an actor who, in Donald Wolfit's company, played such roles as Feste in Twelfth Night and the Fool in King Lear. Later he played roles in musicals such as Lock Up Your Daughters and enjoyed a late success as Scrooge in a touring production of A Christmas Carol. He was an actor of the old school with a melodious speaking voice and a strong stage presence.

Johnson recounted his Eurovision experiences in an edition of Gloria Live, with Gloria Hunniford, broadcast on BBC One on 4 May 1990.

He died in October 1995 at the age of 69.
