Many years ago, a Salvation Army pump organ — dusty from service and silent since the War — settled into the hands of a fifteen-year-old boy named Michael Wookey. Michael began to play and record his own songs, and soon the pump organ was joined by other, more arcane instruments — an Optigan here, some Omnichords there; boxes of dead Casios waiting to be corrected. As the collection grew, so did the songs grow: into albums, the latest of which is called GUN GALA. For the past few years Michael lived in Paris, where he played regular concerts at Divan Du Monde, Café De La Danse and Le Reservoir, and a monthly residency at the prestigious La Bellevilloise. Michael could also be seen performing his score for 'Alice In Wonderland' over fifty performances, leading a thirty-piece orchestra of toy pianos for the French Culture Minister and recording innumerable Parisian musicians in his studio. Michael now lives in London and continues to play regular concerts and collaborate with other artists.
