biographical info

Michael was born in the northern, working class town of Warrington, England. While growing up in St. Catharines Ontario, Canada, he followed his passion to write music and honed his craft by performing throughout Southern Ontario.

He amassed a substantial collection of self-produced recordings which caught the attention of Los Angeles based producer Charlton Pettus. Signing with Pettus’ indie label Town Records in 2008 led to the release of his self-titled CD, Michael Wainwright. Revolutionary illustrator and graphic artist Alan Aldridge (Elton John, The Beatles, Rolling Stones) agreed to design the cover. 

In 2009, he was offered the opportunity to perform as the opening act and background singer for Tears For Fears. “It’s been such an honour performing with them. I was always a fan theirs, singing with them is truly surreal."

From broken hearted to a reckless heartbreak, Michael Wainwright evolves with his second full-length album titled The Circus Is Coming To Town. “It’s an eclectic mix of melodic confessions.” It features the song “Heart-Shaped Man” written by Roland Orzabal. “It’s a song he wrote about my head. Catchy, yet self-deprecating.”
