BIO
 

IMG_1803.jpg

As a versatile composer with a background in jazz and classical studies, Pierre Charles thrives in sonic environments that blend the sound of traditional scores with contemporary, often electronic and synth-based, elements. In 2019, he was awarded the SABAM Award for Best Young International Composer at the internationally esteemed World Soundtrack Awards in Ghent, Belgium.

 

Charles and Kris Bowers co-composed the score for the upcoming Shondaland limited Netflix series, Inventing Anna. In addition to his own projects, including White Coat Rebels (Participant Media) and Musicology (Quibi), Charles has contributed music to several television shows and films including Euphoria, Space Jam: A New Legacy, Bridgerton, Dear White People, Mrs. America, Bad Hair, and United States vs. Billie Holiday.

 

Charles prides himself on his New Orleans heritage, from which he draws much of his musical influence. He received training at Michigan State University, where he majored in jazz studies, and received a Master of Music degree from the University of Southern California.
