Charlie's versatility means he is equally at home scoring contemporary, cutting edge films, such as the Mel Smith film 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. Charlie has 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 forthcoming comedy I Really Hate My Job.
He also co-wrote the title track for the animation Quest For A Heart. Charlie has most recently completed the much anticipated St Trinian's remake, based on the tales of the anarchic schoolgirls, with Rupert Everett stepping in to Alastair Sims' 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, and a dramatic adaptation of The Diary of Anne Frank for Darlow Smithson.
He is about to begin scoring Dorian Gray for Fragile Films starring Ben Barnes. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
