Blackmore's Night is the fantasy art inspired folk- rock band that was formed by legendary guitarist Ritchie Blackmore along with his wife Candice Night.
They have just released their latest album entitled Autumn Sky which went straight to number one in the Billboard New Age charts putting Ritchie firmly back on the art
The career of Ritchie Blackmore spans over more than three decades with
his previous bands and now his new musical art
form reaches across the
globe with a new genre of Ren and Rock music. The lyrics to this new
artistic album have been written by the award winning songwriter
Candice Night and have been inspired by many things; from nature to
myths and fairy tales and encounters on their luxury travels all over
Music is one of the greatest art
forms on earth and the
songs composed and arranged by Ritchie Blackmore have the essence of
melodies from as early as the 1400 and 1500s, that is, before Ritchie
turned them into works of art
and reinvented them as melodies equally
The previous album of Blackmore's Night, Secret Voyage, debuted on
the Billboard charts in the US at number 1, firmly ensuring a place in the world
and music when it held onto that spot for four weeks in a row,
and then remained amongst the top ten for 72 weeks. All of their past
albums with lyrical paintings have achieved great success and the honor
of being high in the charts along with attaining numerous gold records
and the very best awards worldwide.
Depicted as true art
, the albums have a unique sound all of their own.
This individual sound combines the very best of modern day instruments
such as keyboards, and guitars, with traditional renaissance
instruments along with the incredibly visual and emotional lyrics and
the ethereal vocals of Candice which are an art
in themselves. The band
is known for putting on spectacular shows when performing their art
live. Their shows often take place at luxury castles and beautiful
historical venues throughout Europe.
Blackmore's Night performances have been seen on numerous channels on
TV internationally and they have been awarded the Best Album of the
Year along with Best Vocal Album by NPR for their last seven CDs which
are all works of art
The new album from Blackmore's Night, “Autumn Sky”, features fifteen
new beautiful songs that are full of emotion and melodic magic. The
album is proof of the versatility of Ritchie Blackmore and Candice
Night along with their seven piece band. The pair have dedicated this
new piece of art
to their newly born daughter: Autumn Esmerelda.Fans of the rock bands Deep Purple and Rainbow might have thought
Ritchie crazy to enter into the art
of romantic songs rather than
focusing on the gutsy rock music they are used to hearing him produce.
However, Blackmore's Night has enjoyed success for the past 14 years.
