Talking to Michael Paynter

Even as a young child it was obvious that he had a special connection with music. At the age of 7 he was learning the piano, at age 12 it was the guitar, and by the age of 15 he was playing drums. Combine that with a big voice and you’ve got a winning formula.

Now at 24, Melbourne born Michael Paynter is releasing a five track EP, Love the Fall.

His musical influences are as diverse as Rick Price, Muddy Waters, Elvis, Blink 182, Sam Cooke, Stereophonics and a range of others. His voice has been compared with the big sound of John Farnham.

You’ll find some of his music here.

Clearly he is a guy who is ready to give the musical world a big shake.

I spoke to Michael Paynter on my morning radio programme today. He’s a great guy and I’m sure he’s got an amazing future ahead of him.

(You can hear a more recent interview I did with Michael here.)
