“Beautiful, powerful and inspiring”Steve Hackett, Genesis
With their critically acclaimed album Mesmeranto entering the official rock charts at number 18, and being voted number 4 in Top 10 Albums of the year by New York’s Big Takeover Magazine, award-winning electronic prog-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 and multi-instrumentalist Rick Pilkington combine their classical influences with vintage synthesisers and ultra- contemporary electronica to create music that takes over the senses.
Expect sublime harmonies, beautiful 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, 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.
