Blackheart are Chrissy Mostyn and Rick Pilkington.
Just three years in they are widely regarded as the fastest rising stars of the new folk generation having become established for both their live concerts, their outstanding debut album ‘Indigo’ and now their brand new CD 'Invisible'.

The last three years have seen them headline their own successful tours across the UK, Scotland and Ireland, a major city tour as guest of Jared Osmond of the famous Osmond family, a TV commercial soundtrack and worldwide radio play including Radio 2 Spotlight Song of the Day twice.

Their songwriting blends folk, country and even rock influences to create a unique style of beautifully crafted, instantly memorable songs that has been christened by the media ‘urban folk’. Their highly personal songs paint pictures of their lives with subjects such as hometowns, marriage, faith, redundancy, bereavement and even suicide all being treated with the sensitive, intellectual lyrical observation that is becoming the trademark of their work.

Their live shows combine the unforgettable lemon and honey voice of Chrissy Mostyn and jaw-dropping acoustic guitar playing of Rick Pilkington with highly entertaining audience interaction as they tell the stories behind their songs.

2010 saw the band complete successful tours of the UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand.
