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, Rovi

Music to Dream to!
Niceee
I love this music

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of you life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lover's name will come on the screen in big letters. This is so scary because it actually works
I heard it on Wolf's Rain, and when I herd this...I had to re-watch it :')
Found beauty :)

Love Actually!
I can never tell whether to cry or dance to 'finding beauty' ... :')
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

have not heard his work before, amazing melodies, unexpected and beautiful!
It's so pretty. ☆彡
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
know this aritis by wake up in new york.~
This is in Love Actually!!! O:
This is so emotional.
Totally thought this was from Wolf's Rain as well... glad I'm not the only one :)
Craig Armstrong is a brilliant composer and producer. He provided much of the genius of the earlier Massive Attack pieces as well.
@ kauldron26 wasn't this a background in more than just wolf's rain? i remember it was in WR now that u mentioned it but i swear i remember hearing this as background in a diff anime
Makes me happy, makes me cry, gives me chills and hope and peace and sorrow all at once!!! AMAZING feeling!!! This guy rocks!
I agree Rod and Xanana; I swear I thought this was from Wolf's Rain. Straight out of Yoko Kanno's work.
Very great music
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.
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

Amazing artist :D
could've sworn I heard this in an anime. Wolf's Rain, possibly? Anyone else hear it from there or am I wrong?
Great song :D
