Over the last decade and more, Charlie has¬†written soundtracks for all sorts of projects in the field of film, television and media, from experimental animations, comedy jingles to hard hitting factual documentaries and dramas.
Over the past fifteen years he has also worked extensively¬†in the field of community music, believing that everyone is both deserving and in need of musical nourishment, whatever their circumstance or background.
He and¬†his wife live in sunny East Lothian, Scotland where – when he’s not growing veggies and getting muddy – he can be found writing music inspired by the beautiful¬†outdoors.
