Blackmore's Night

Legendary Deep Purple and Rainbow guitarist Ritchie Blackmore (b. April 14, 1945, Weston-super-Mare, England) shifted his musical focus away from hard rock in the late 1990s and started concentrating on his love of Renaissance-era music. He formed Blackmore's Night with his fiancee, vocalist/lyricist Candice Night (b. May 8, 1971, Hauppauge, Long Island, New York), and recruited other musicians from around the world to combine elements of world music, Renaissance, new age, folk, and rock & roll. Blackmore didn't exactly retire his Fender Stratocaster, but he plays acoustic guitar almost exclusively in Blackmore's Night. His acoustic guitar melodies and Night's clear, ethereal voice blend with a host of instruments such as mandolins, keyboards, pennywhistles, violins, tambourines, military drums, and hurdy-gurdies. Blackmore once described the band's sound as "Mike Oldfield meets Enya." Blackmore and Night met in about 1989 when Deep Purple played soccer against employees of a Long Island radio station where she worked. Night, a former model, studied communications at the New York Institute of Technology and had her own radio show. Blackmore and Night discovered they shared a love of Renaissance culture and quickly became a couple. The formation of Blackmore's Night is tied to the efforts of his previous two bands. Blackmore left Deep Purple -- again -- after 1993's musically disappointing The Battle Rages On... album. Blackmore then revived Rainbow -- technically under the original Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow moniker -- with largely unknown musicians for 1995's Stranger in Us All, and Night contributed lyrics for four songs. Blackmore didn't really want to call it a Rainbow project, but record company executives insisted the name recognition would make it easier to market the album. After Stranger in Us All, Blackmore decided to actually record Renaissance-inspired music. He'd loved the style for years, but he never really played it himself. Once he began playing the music at home, Night would casually start singing along. This innocent, informal practice germinated in Blackmore's Night. The debut Night- and Blackmore-penned album Shadow of the Moon, was released domestically in 1998, and featured Jethro Tull's Ian Anderson, who contributed flute on "Play Minstrel Play." Under a Violet Moon followed in 1999, and since a full tour was planned, Blackmore consciously wrote more upbeat, stage-friendly music. The duo continued to release albums throughout the noughties, including 2003's Ghost of a Rose, 2006's The Village Lanterne, and 2008's Secret Voyage. In 2010, Blackmore and Night released their eighth studio album Autumn Sky. Dedicated to their newly born daughter, the album went on to reach the number 15 spot on the German album charts. Night released his solo debut, Reflections, in 2011, and Dancer and the Moon, Blackmore's Night's ninth release, appeared in 2013. ~ Bret Adams

I like ritchie blackmoor a lot, but lets face it, this group is defined by Candace Night. To have not even a mention of her here when mentioning so many other nobody's is disgraceful.

Her Celtic voice is ethereal. Many of us don't understand the mystery of light in music and this moves me and allows gazes behind the veil.

I I agree with several commentators : Lyrics are essential for us sing along addicts and to add to our understandin g of the music: up-to-date performer info is valuable: We need to know more about original composer (hate the collections that rename the music and substitute a performer). and we want to find out about the lineage and influences for the music. You do hint at derivation with some performer(s) / c o m p o s e r s , when you discuss their influences. We realize there may be copyright issues.

Amen - the biographies are a nice thought, but they always seem to be inaccurate, or outdated, or just missing.

...although, I wouldn't be surprised if it turns out to be a copyright issue, since Pandora is for-profit, maybe they can't offer lyrics.

Yes, please return the lyrics option -don't really care about inconsistenc i e s . ...in fact, I find those interesting. . . !

Ritchie seems to find the best vocalists for his bands. Loved Purple and now this band and their music. Candice is the perfect fit. Listen to her do Child in Time - She Rocks!

I think Pandora stopped doing lyrics because there were so many (true) complaints about wrong ones. I was off for a few months and now even songs that used to have lyrics don't.

I'm a little crazy about Blackmore's Night right now. I found them on a Celtic station and can honestly call them one of the most incredible bands I've ever heard.
