At the age of 15, Michael Wookey was given a portable pump organ which belonged to his grandfather who was an organist during World War II. This instrument inspired Michael to write some songs and to start collecting obscure instruments. At the age of 20 , Michael recorded his first album entitled Dreams Of You. This album featured mostly his collection of vintage organs and a lot of Casios. At the age of 24 Michael completed his second album entitled You Shield Me From Darkness which features many obscure instruments such as an Optigan, a toy piano and an Omnichord, as well as his collection of organs and Casios. Michael now lives in Paris. The French describe his music as folk baroque, meaning bizarre folk.
