The Blackheart Orchestra

 

With their Top 20 charting album Mesmeranto, and Chrissy Mostyn recently voted in the Top 10 world female vocalists, the UK’s inspirational award-winning electronic folk pioneers The Blackheart Orchestra take their music to a new, unexplored dimension. Described as “A mesmerizing powerhouse” “A life-enhancing listening event” “An avant-garde musical utopia” and “One of the most extraordinary voices singing anywhere today” vocalist Chrissy Mostyn and multi-instrumentalist Rick Pilkington combine classical influences with vintage synthesisers and ultra contemporary electronica to create music that takes over the senses.

 

As emotionally charged as it is musically accomplished, expect sublime harmonies, virtuoso guitar, piano and synthesiser playing and songwriting and arrangements that take the audience ”from heartbreaking to uplifting in a single song”. With awards including Best British Duo, a Limelight Progressive Music Award Nomination and being voted in the UK’s Top 4 Best New Bands, plus performances at the London Palladium and Royal Albert Hall, The Blackheart Orchestra are two voices and thirteen instruments that create a unique musical experience that is truly ground-breaking.
