Charlie Jefferson is a composer and music producer from coastal East Lothian in Scotland.

His training as a classical and folk guitarist collided with the world of electronic music production in the late 1990s. Ever since, his work has explored the connection of these diverse fields. His emotive blend of rootsy acoustica, orchestral instrumentation and minimal electronica, has proven popular with award winning film makers worldwide.
