Australian native Michael Paynter might be a foreign name to people who are not familiar with the Australian music scene. But the 27 year old former 'The Voice Australia' contestant has caused quite a storm in Australia. Apart from performing and making music with big names like THE VERONICAS, the lad has released some mind blowing chart toppers.
Michael has got a rawness to his music that many musicians today lack. There's always something special about a sincere and raw sound. His first single "Closer" (released in 2008), serves as a testament of his undeniable talent.
Michael's success with his music has only escalated since. 'Love the fall' was released in 2010 and has garnered 164, 000 views on YouTube! The track was a great showcase of his rock solid vocals and it's versatility. This song also features popular Ozzie twins, THE VERONICAS!
Michael caused quite an uproar when he got booted of the second season of The Voice Australia. During the competition, he wowed Australia with his renditions of Justin Bieber's As Long As You Love Me and Bruno Mars' Locked Out Of Heaven. WHY ISNT THIS GUY FAMOUS YET?
MIchael is a good example of musicians with talent but little exposure. Australia knows him, but the rest of the world needs to meet this young lad. Honest, young and full of talent to share. If you want to try something new, you should check him out! Michael, if you see this: Do a live gig in Singapore. It's a good place to start.
