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, and in 2023 received a BMI Film & TV Award for his scores on East New York (CBS) and Inventing Anna (Netflix).
Charles has recently completed the score for Gonzo Girl, a feature novel adaptation by Jessica Caldwell directed by Patricia Arquette that premiered at the 2023 Toronto FIlm Festival. His latest project, Story Ave, starring Asante Blackk, is set to release in the fall. In 2022, Charles co-composed the score for the Shondaland limited Netflix series, Inventing Anna, with Kris Bowers, as well as co-composed the score for Netflix's They Cloned Tyrone starring Jamie Foxx. In addition to his own projects, Charles has contributed music to several television series and films including Euphoria, Space Jam: A New Legacy, When They See Us, DMZ, 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 early musical influence. He received a Master of Music degree from the University of Southern California.
