    10-02-2014

    Blackheart are excited to announce that they will be joining Graeme Clark of Wet Wet Wet on his acoustic tour of the UK throughout May and June details of venues and ticket links can be found here.

    Graeme Clark - As a cornerstone of the record breaking, multi-million selling band Wet Wet Wet, Scottish songwriter Graeme Clark is no stranger to playing sell-out stadium concerts all over the world. More recently though, he's been performing his own stripped back, intimate and acoustic songs to an army of loyal and devoted fans.

    Graeme penned over 30 hits with Wet Wet Wet, including Goodnight Girl, Sweet little Mystery, Julia Says and Temptation. Now, his debut solo album Mr Understanding and current EP, Catching Fire are being very well received.

    Playing his new solo material and covers some of the Wet's favourites in his own inimitable style, Graeme will be joined by honorary Wet Wet Wet member and guitarist Graeme Duffin and Iain Duff on piano and accordion.

  • New Glowing Review for Songs From a SatelliteOpen or Close

    Kensington and Chelsea Today - Songs From a Satellite review by James Douglas

    I would hope that anyone who’d worked with me would describe me with my anal Filofaxes (yup, that’s plural, all six of them have an individual function and all written using a classic gold Waterman CF from the fifties), as more organised than I look, so I was mortified to turn up too late a few weeks ago to watch the quite fabulously eclectic youthful duo that is psychedelic-folk neo-prog outfit Blackheart support Stackridge, a band equally firmly based in that curiously eccentric British tradition that spawned the Strawbs and the earliest incarnation of Pink Floyd.
    I’ll pull no punches and say I love Blackheart, who have enjoyed some commercial exposure on the back of well-received festival gigs over the last couple of years. Regular readers may recall they are graduates of a school which guarantees class by association – there’s never been a duff act at Alex Dixon-Wilson’s Discovery 2. By way of atonement I’ve broken a person rule (one I break with alarming regularity) and I’ve reviewed their latest album, the just-released Songs from a Satellite, and I have to say it is stunningly beautiful, and deceptive in its simplicity-veiled depth. The referencing includes everything that’s great in rock, from the great English folk bands to the all-pervasive influence of The Velvet Underground (particularly in the pivotal Living in the Underworld, which segues into Me The in what is effectively a double track) all washed with the purity of Travis – the ticking in Not Over Yet echoing The Humpty Dumpty Love Song. Third album Songs from a Satellite by Blackheart is the best yet from an already great band.

    Marvellous band though Stackridge are, and bless them for the Korgi’s, it would be wrong to limit Blackheart as their natural successors. Blackheart are on the fringe of true greatness that should take their legacy beyond even their famous patrons' glittering career, and it’s to Stackridge’s great credit that the band (singer Chrissy Mostyn and guitarist Richard Pilkington) should be lionised as what would appear to be a regular support act to the sixties’ icons.
    Like all truly excellent bands, the albums are wonderful, but to get the full impact of Blackheart you need to see them live, and at least I'd seen them before so I know, and was reminded of the fact on hearing the fabulous Everything You Are on Songs from a Satellite. Well done guys.www.blackheartmusic.co.uk
