The Blackheart Orchestra

tbo-by-sam-eddison.jpgThe Blackheart Orchestra are award-winning British songwriters, composers and multi-instrumentalists Chrissy Mostyn & Richard Pilkington. The band blend musical styles in a non-conformist way. Combining fragility and pulsing electronica, weaving melodies and atmospherics with silence to create ethereal musical landscapes. Albums, 'Diving For Roses' and 'Songs From A Satellite' have since been remastered for vinyl and will be released on deluxe 180 gram vinyl in September of 2021.

Chrissy Mostyn and Rick Pilkington of British duo The Blackheart Orchestra have in recent years been working on something of a musical reinvention and have presented those reinventions in their albums Diving For Roses and Songs From A Satellite.

The musicianship, performance and quality shine through in each and every song, incorporating both traditional and not-so-traditional instruments. 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.
