The Blackheart Orchestra
With their Top 20 charting album Mesmeranto, inspirational electronic folk pioneers The Blackheart Orchestra, take their music to a new, unexplored dimension. Described as a mesmerising powerhouse; an avant-garde musical utopia; and one of the most extraordinary voices singing anywhere today, vocalist Chrissy Mostyn, along with multi-instrumentalist Rick Pilkington, combine their classical influences with vintage synths 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 song writing and arrangements that take the audience from heartbreaking to uplifting in a single song. With awards including Best British Duo, Limelight Progressive Music Award Nomination and being voted in the UK’s Top 4 Best New Bands, The Blackheart Orchestra are two voices and thirteen instruments that create a unique musical experience that is truly ground-breaking.
