The Blackheart Orchestra
Award-winning British songwriters, composers and multi-instrumentalists, Chrissy Mostyn and Rick Pilkington are The Blackheart Orchestra.
If you want to cite influences, you could credit Mike OldfieldLaurie AndersonTori Amos or Michael Nyman but, the fact is, The Blackheart Orchestra is unique, with a sound and style all of its own.
“Beautiful, powerful and inspiring”- Genesis Legend Steve Hackett
 
The Blackheart Orchestra is a two person orchestra playing up to 13 instruments in their unique live show.
Their symphonic use of vintage synthesisers, acoustic and electric guitars, mandola, bass, bowed guitar and percussion, piano, organ, omnichord and melodica creates powerful, highly emotional music that has been described as a modern day Pink Floyd, a more accessible Portishead and with many comparisons to the creativity of Kate Bush.
Their highly acclaimed album Mesmeranto entered the Official UK Rock Chart at No.18, hailed as:
“A mesmerising powerhouse” “An avant-garde musical utopia” and “A life-enhancing listening experience”.
Singer Chrissy Mostyn was voted No.8 in a UK female vocalist poll and named “One of the most extraordinary voices singing anywhere today”.
The pioneering duo blend musical styles seamlessly sidestepping boundaries to create music huge
enough to fill a cathedral. Well known for producing music beyond all easily marketed genres, their
multi-instrumental sonic landscapes have always been too unpredictable for pop, too adventurous
for the mainstream and too plain weird for folk. Fusing acoustic fragility and pulsing electronica, The Blackheart Orchestra bring together stringed instruments with '80s synthesisers and classical influences.
A treat for the eyes as well as the ears: to witness two people become an “orchestra”; seamlessly, almost invisibly, switching vocals and instruments between them is as mesmeric to watch as their music is hypnotic to hear.
Their four critically acclaimed albums and mesmerising live shows have won them obsessive
worldwide fans, plaudits from musical giants and placements on TV commercials and films.
Chrissy Mostyn’s haunting vocals, the multi-instrumental playing of Rick Pilkington, plus their fearless combination of conventional and unconventional all reflect their self-created universe where art meets sound and words paint pictures that take you with them on their deep musical journey into the human psyche.
“So stunning and beautiful; their music reaches areas of your head and heart that you never knew existed”- Metal Planet
“Beautiful, powerful and inspiring”- Genesis Legend Steve Hackett
