I'm recording an album with my old friend Peter Lyons, so new music will be here very soon.
I just finished co-producing an album of covers for Pierre Faa. It's all songs written by Gainsbourg, some well known and some not so well known. Listen to it here.
Films and things
Live sessions from Hollywood Hex
The most rewarding of the pieces for toys on the program. A fairground tune unfolded on the toy piano, a bittersweet interlude evoked loss, and a syncopated bluesy melody evolved in a melancholic haze.
The New York Times
Anne Brochet found a musical parallel. The melodies and sound inserts of Michael Wookey come in delicate attire in a film where intimacy and fantasy, reflection and playfulness are balanced. - Le Monde
A brilliant composer of lunatic cabaret songs.
LES INROCKUPTIBLES - JD Beauvallet
Cajun music and New Orleans jazz are never far. A whimsical, playful world with a few melancholic strokes and carnival-like frenzy.
Obsküre Magazine (Mai-Juin 2013)
A charming formula with plenty of unique arrangement ideas and the same kind of energy as in Patrick Watson's music.
France Musique - Vincent Théval - LABEL POP
From string-filled popsongs that could have been composed by Sufjan Stevens to sparkling folk ballads through to darker tones, these songs are flawless!
