Award-winning British songwriters, composers and multi-instrumentalists Chrissy Mostyn and Rick Pilkington are The Blackheart Orchestra. Led by Chrissy’s stunning, ethereal vocals, they blend musical styles in an effortless and non-conformist way, creating music which has been compared to Kate Bush, Ellie Goulding, London Grammar, Steve Reich, Mike Oldfield and Kirsty MacColl, but which is also totally unique.
Their four critically acclaimed albums and mesmerising live shows have won them worldwide fans, plaudits from musical giants, and placements on TV commercials and films. Dextrous multi-instrumental playing, haunting vocals, and the gift for a catchy tune unite to create a universe where art meets sound and words paint pictures, taking the audience with them on a musical journey into the human psyche.
