Autumn Sky consists of 14 new Blackmore's Night songs, plus a cover of “Celluloid Heroes” from The Kinks. Recorded during Candice's pregnancy, Candice and Ritchie have dedicated the 'Autumn Sky' album to their newly born daughter Autumn Esmerelda Blackmore.
Blackmore's Night's last album, 'Secret Voyage', debuted at #1 on the Billboard New Age Chart and held that spot for four consecutive weeks.
With a career spanning nearly two decades, the band of minstrels has gained crossover success all over the world with its new genre of “Ren and Rock” music. They also have appeared nationwide on PBS and Discovery channel specials, and been awarded the Best Album of the Year and Best Vocal Album of the year by NPR New Age Reporter for their past 7 studio CDs.
