Black Chapel is Electronic Producer and remixer, STEVE MORTIMER. From his base in Chelmsford, BLACK CHAPEL weaves a love of deep grooves with melancholy harmonies and intricate atmospheres, influenced from a wide range of genres. 
For the past 2 years, as BLACK CHAPEL COLLECTIVE, Steve has been  working with a group of talented and like-minded Artists/Musicians to address the single most important issue that faces our world today, that of Climate Change. His passion for the issue has led to the creation of a multimedia project, “CONNECT” and working with other musicians and artists through the Pandemic, this became firstly a Film and then a Live show. The film has become an International sensation winning over 40 awards so far and leading to Steve being interviewed Live on SKY NEWS earlier in 2021. The Live show in September was a triumph with all the Artists coming together for the first time on one stage to perform the show.
So far 3 singles have been released from the project in 2021. Earth Day on 22nd April  2022 will see the next release, and we will be announcing plans to present the show in schools, Universities and Festivals to support that release.
You can see the film “CONNECT” here
