Michael Paynter Finally Reaches The Stars


WORDS BY Jacqui James


IT GIVES ME GREAT pleasure to announce the determined Michael Paynter TODAY has launched his brand new video for Weary Stars. The track is his first taste from his upcoming album due to be released on January 31st.

To refresh your memory, Michael was one of the favourite constants on The Voice 2013, reaching the final four! Receiving constant praise from all four judges, finally Michael’s amazing talents were shown to millions of viewers around Australia, and no doubt the world.

In September 2010 I interviewed Michael and even back then I knew he would achieve his ultimate goal to become the best he can be. Almost four years on Michael is extremely excited to release new music, meanwhile still staying humble and very grateful to his fans!

I'm an Australian author and music journalist from Melbourne. I've had articles and poetry published in several magazines and newspapers since finishing my Diploma in Professional Writing and Editing in 2001. In 2010 Gigs 'n Interviews was born. I launched it with my first big named interview and that was Vanessa Amorosi and then in 2012 I felt unbelievably privileged to interview Ronan Keating. I'm extremely proud of what Gigs 'n Interviews has become as it's seen as a platform for emerging artists and entertainers to be heard.

Looking forward to writing more children's books, I hope to change the wrong perception of children and adults with disabilities as I was born with Severe Cerebral Palsy (like Christy Brown who wrote My Left Foot). People can view my books at
