Charlie Mole - Composer Profile

Charlie's musical career began with a music scholarship to Oxford university. After graduating, he signed to Warner-Chappell as a songwriter for 10 years before embarking on a career as a film composer.

Emmy Nominated in 2013 for his music to ITV's Mr. Selfridge, Charlie is perhaps better known in Hollywood than in the UK because of the quality of films he has scored, despite his incredibly well received score for ITV Studios’ flagship period drama Mr. Selfridge, starring Jeremy Piven. The dark and moody orchestral score he wrote for Othello(Lawrence Fishburne, Kenneth Branagh/Castlerock) "stands up there with those of James Horner, Danny Elfman and John Williams" (US Soundtrack Review). His witty and graceful score to An Ideal Husband (Rupert Everett, Cate Blanchett/Miramax) won numerous international awards and established him as a leading international composer. Charlie's versatility means he is equally at home scoring contemporary, cutting edge films, such High Heels and Low Lifes for Fragile/Buena Vista. He is also one of the UK's top pop/R&B songwriters, having written for & with Chaka Khan, Kylie Minogue, Angie Stone, Ultra Nate, and Lenny Kravitz. This rare combination has enabled him to include end title songs in his film scores. He most recently completed scoring North America, an epic natural history feature documentary from Discovery and Silverback Films.

Charlie received massive critical acclaim for his score to The Importance Of Being Earnest (Fragile/Miramax) - "Charlie Mole's score takes risks that the camera sometimes doesn't, boldly swirling into gaps in the action, adding pace, excitement and humour, it makes you want to laugh out loud!" (Sunday Telegraph). His film scores also include the black comedy Guy X and the Italian set thriller Fade To Black about the life of Orson Welles, as well as the comedy I Really Hate My Job, starring Neve Campbell and Danny Huston. He also co-wrote the title track for the animated feature Quest For A Heart. Charlie scored the much anticipated St Trinian's remake as well as scoring the sequel, St Trinian's II: The Legend of Fritton's Gold, which again sees Rupert Everett stepping in to Alastair Sim's role as Miss Fritton. He also scored Northanger Abbey, a TV Film adaptation of the Jane Austen classic, starring Felicity Jones and J.J. Field, as well as a dramatic adaptation of The Diary Of Anne Frank for Darlow Smithson which was incredibly well received by critics and audiences alike. He went on to score Dorian Gray for Fragile Films starring Ben Barnes and Deadmine, a horror action thriller, for director Steven Shiel.
