Michael Paynter – How Sweet It Is

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.

Michael Paynter is in Perth to support Miley Cyrus tomorrow night at Burswood Dome. He joined me in the studio this morning as part of my radio programme on 98.5 Sonshine FM.

Michael has certainly built up an impressive fan base in the last few years but this time around he’s supporting someone else. I started by asking how differently he approaches a performance when he’s faced with a big crowd that haven’t really come along to hear your music.

Love the Fall was a big song for Michael. His latest song, How Sweet It Is, is out now.

You’ll find some of his music here.

He’s a great guy and I’m sure he’s got an amazing future ahead of him.
