The musical evolution of Michael Paynter has been a series of obsessive love affairs. At the age of 7 it was the piano, at age 12 it was the guitar, and by the age of 15 he was crashing through a set of drums.
It's a natural progression that, at the age of 24, the Melbourne-born singer, lyricist, and multi-instrumentalist has harnessed his talents to release his debut EP Love The Fall.
The first single, Love the Fall, was the most added single in Australia in July, the video clip entered YouTube’s Top 100 in 15 countries, becoming the 46th most viewed music video worldwide. This spurned a string of TV and live appearances featuring Michaels talented young band and that ‘big voice’ that followers of the Melbourne born singer songwriter know so well.
Michael has traveled the globe four times in as many years, and written with the finest in his field, from Guy Chambers [Robbie Williams] and Adam Argyle [Newton Faulkner] in the UK, to Toby Gad [Beyonce, Black Eyed Peas] and David Ryan Harris [John Mayer] in the US.
