Craig Armstrong In-depth Biography

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)."} ~ Jason Birchmeier ~ Jason Birchmeier, All Music Guide
