Craig Armstrong

Scottish producer Craig Armstrong scored countless soundtracks to much acclaim during the '90s and into the 2000s. His soundtrack work was in fact so successful that many big-name artists, such as U2 and Madonna, began courting him, while he simultaneously pursued a solo career as a down-tempo electronica producer beginning with The Space Between Us in 1998. Though his collaborations are too numerous to list, Armstrong's most successfully paired with film director Baz Luhrman, producing big-selling soundtracks for Romeo + Juliet (1998) and Moulin Rouge (2001).

Born in Scotland, Armstrong began his production career in the early '90s. He composed music for several BBC and STV productions during this time, but his big break came with the Scottish pop trio Big Dish. Armstrong co-wrote three songs on the trio's Satellites album, released in 1991, and also provided string arrangements for the album. Three years later, in 1994, Armstrong worked with renowned trip-hop group Massive Attack on its genre-defining Protection album. This association with Massive Attack would pay dividends a few years later when the group released Armstrong's debut full-length album on its Melankolic label. By the end of the '90s, Armstrong had collaborated with such big-name artists as U2, Madonna, Hole, the Spice Girls, the London Suede, and Tina Turner, in addition to many other lesser-known artists.

As mentioned, Massive Attack released Armstrong's solo debut, The Space Between Us, in 1998. The album didn't prove to be as popular as expected, but it nonetheless increased Armstrong's reputation as a noteworthy producer. During this same late-'90s era, Armstrong continued working on soundtrack projects, which remained his most acclaimed work. His work for Jake Scott's debut film, Plunkett & Macleane, was perhaps his most visible work, being released by Astralwerks in the States (as had The Space Between Us a year earlier). However, he worked on soundtracks for much more successful films such as Mission: Impossible (1996), Romeo + Juliet (1998), Cruel Intentions (1999), and -- perhaps his most celebrated soundtrack work -- Moulin Rouge (2001). Following the success of Moulin Rouge, and its second volume, Armstrong returned in 2002 with his second non-soundtrack full-length effort, As if to Nothing, which boasted a new version of U2's "Stay (Faraway, So Close)." In 2004, he provided the score for the Ray Charles biopic Ray, and in 2005, an anthology of his film work was released. ~ Jason Birchmeier

For those of you that remember this song from an anime/game/m o v i e / e c t . You most likely remember it from the ending theme to Tekken Tag Tournament. Or a tleast 50% of it. Its very similar.

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. However if you don't post this you will be injured(but won't die) in two days now you started reading this so don't stop. Post this on at least five other songs in the next 143 minutes when your done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen with big letter this is so scary because it actually works

The bio by Jason B. is good, but I think countless soundtracks is a bit of a stretch. If you get a change check out Waltz (feat. Antye Greie-Fuchs) on YouTube... :) sMc

I had no idea that he was associated with music by Massive Attack. You learn something new every day, I suppose. I love Teardrop by Massive Attack. It's one of their more popular songs

Craig Armstrong is a brilliant composer and producer. He provided much of the genius of the earlier Massive Attack pieces as well.

I agree Rod and Xanana; I swear I thought this was from Wolf's Rain. Straight out of Yoko Kanno's work.

I remember this memorable piece from the movie "Love Actually". Hauntingly beautiful. I believe it was the first time i saw Kiera Knightley in a movie. What a household name she is now.
Report as inappropriate
Agreed with Xanana. I was just working on this years NaNoWriMo when this song came on. I almost thought I was listening to my Wolf's Rain soundtrack. It sounds just like the song they use at the end of episode 3 of Wolfs Rain. When I heard it I just 'fan-girled' all over the place

Romeo + Juliet was actually released in 1996 (2 years before the date given above).
