I was born in London, England in 1982, and I suppose I've always had a passion for music. I enjoyed playing traditional instruments at school, but my interest in music composition really got started when I found out about computer music sequencing, and when I got access to a suitable machine back in the mid-1990s.
The technology has changed almost beyond recognition over the years, but my love of music has remained constant.
To understand music theory, and to learn more about the technical and professional aspects of music production, I attended University in Ealing, home of the famous Ealing Film Studios, and got a graduate qualification in Music Technology
I've been lucky enough to compose music for movies, and video games since then. I like to work in a variety of styles. With each new piece, I try to remain stylistically and culturally authentic to the genre, but I always try to add whatever the secret formula of musical herbs and spices is that makes up the trademark Charlie Armour sound.
I love to make music with other people, using the global reach of the internet to maintain collaborative relationships and friendships with independent music and video artists from all corners of the globe. I have been credited as producer and composer on a number of projects, and gained priceless opportunities to expand my own artistic horizons in doing so.
This year I received some international recognition in the form of 3 awards with help from a great composer Ian Henderson for our composing and my production work, as voted for by the global internet community. (Which was nice.)
I suppose the fact that I have made it so far is something of a miracle, given my battle with Leukodystrophy, a neurological disorder which (in my case) affects the use of my legs and hands - not an ideal situation for a musician, but I don't get distracted by little things like that. I believe that persistence is the main component of success, both in music, and in life - and I hope that my example will encourage other people to ignore their own distractions, and remain persistent in their own attempts to achieve their goals.
