Alt-jazz and Neo-soul are coming our way, with Moonchild announcing a spectacular run of exclusive Australian tour dates.
Moonchild, one of the world’s most exciting alt-jazz acts, has announced a debut tour of Australia this June in support of their fourth full-length, Little Ghost. The Californian trio will bring their ever-evolving fusion of alternative R&B, jazz and neo-soul to Melbourne’s Night Cat on Friday, June 12 and the Woolly Mammoth in Brisbane on Saturday, June 13.
Moonchild is a combination of three multi-instrumentalists — Amber Navran [vocals, tenor saxophone, flute, keyboards, synth bass, drum programming], Andris Mattson [trumpet, flugelhorn, keyboards, synth bass, guitar, drum programming], and Max Bryk [alto saxophone, clarinet, keyboards, synth bass, drum programming]. The resulting union yields an ever-evolving fusion of alternative R&B and neo-soul. For as singular as each personality may be, they all participate equally in writing, producing, tracking, and mixing their records, collaborating as truly equal partners. Not only do they create as a unit, but they also evolve, grow, and transform as one.
After that first shared piano bench session at the University of Southern California, the group unveiled their debut record Be Free in 2012. Please Rewind followed three years later, and 2017’s Voyager saw them ascend to new critical peaks. NPR Music touted the record among, ‘Five R&B Albums You Slept On In 2017,’ and JAZZ FM named them ‘Soul Act of the Year’ for 2018. Their singles ‘Cure’ toppled 8 million Spotify streams and ‘The List’ exceeded 7 million plays on YouTube.
Moonchild recently performed ‘Money’, ‘The Other Side’ and ‘The List’ live on NPR’s ‘Tiny Desk Concert’ – watch it here.
