The Blackheart Orchestra are 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”.
“So stunning and beautiful,
their music reaches areas
of your head and heart that
you never knew existed”
