Following his global success as DEEP PURPLE and RAINBOW's guitarist and main composer, Ritchie Blackmore changed his musical form of expression in the mid-'90s to co-found BLACKMORE'S NIGHT with instrumentalist/lyricist/lead vocalist Candice Night.

BLACKMORE'S NIGHT has fascinated its steadily growing fan community since 1997 with wonderful vocal melodies and evocative guitar parts. Its debut album, "Shadow of the Moon", stayed on the German chart for 17 weeks and went gold in Japan. The band toured churches, opera houses, theatres and castles all over the world.

1999's "Under a Violet Moon" entered high in the European and Japanese charts, and was voted "Best Vocal Album Of The Year" in the USA by National Public Radio. 2001's "Fires at Midnight" went to #9 in Germany and #20 in Japan. "Past Times with Good Company" (2002), the first live album, and "Ghost of a Rose" (2003), preceded "Beyond the Sunset - The Romantic Collection" (2004), a retrospective of beautiful ballads from the early years, again voted "Best Vocal Album Of The Year" in the USA by NPR. "Castles and Dreams", the first DVD, aired on PBS throughout the USA in 2006 and 2007. In 2006, "The Village Lanterne" brought the band back into the Top 20 album charts worldwide.
