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 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”.
While their music has led them to recent performances at
Birmingham’s Symphony Hall and London’s Palladium
and Royal Albert Hall, their online concerts were voted
No.10 Rock Event of the Year 2010 by
Prog Magazine’s readership.


“So stunning and beautiful,
their music reaches areas
of your head and heart that
you never knew existed”
Metal Planet
