The Blackheart Orchestra


One of the must-see bands of 2017, The Blackheart Orchestra blend musical styles seamlessly sidestepping boundaries to create music huge enough to fill a cathedral. Fusing acoustic fragility and pulsing electronica, the duo bring together stringed instrument dexterity with 80’s synthesisers and clear classical influences. Often mistaken for an 8-piece band on first listen, they are to be found on stage continuously changing from electric and acoustic guitars, bowed guitar, piano, organ, bass and electronic percussion to vintage synthesisers, omnichord and melodica in a complex choreographed weave of musical moods and textures. One moment their sound is minimal and molecular, the next a mountain-like wall of sound with vast symphonic climaxes. Their four critically acclaimed albums and mesmerizing live shows have won them obsessive worldwide fans, plaudits from musical giants and placements on TV commercials and films. “One of the most extraordinary female voices singing anywhere” (Rock Society Magazine) “The band’s fresh new sound is delicate and fragrant”(PROG Magazine)
