She recorded with harmonica player Bobby Leecan and guitarist Robert Cooksey, playing country blues; she also did several recordings with New Orleans jazz ensembles which included Sidney Bechet, Clarence Williams, Louis Armstrong, Bubber Miley, and Tom Morris. She and Williams also played with the Jazz Rippers, Buddy Christian's ensemble, though Williams was not credited and Johnson was listed under the name Margaret Carter.

Her songs were often humorous and sexually suggestive in tone. After the late 1920s she ceased to record as a vocalist, but worked as an accompanist for Billie Holiday in the 1930s, when Holiday was performing with Lester Young. Read more on Last.fm.
