The Blackheart Orchestra

With their new album Mesmeranto entering the official rock charts at number 18 , inspirational, award-winning electronic folk pioneers The Blackheart Orchestra take their music to a new, unexplored dimension. Described as “A mesmerizing powerhouse” “An avant-garde musical utopia” and “One of the most extraordinary voices singing anywhere today” vocalist Chrissy Mostynand multi-instrumentalist Rick Pilkington combine their classical influences with vintage synthesisers and ultra contemporary electronicato 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 andbeing 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.
