“The magnificent Moonchild… good work” – GILLES PETERSON

“Yet another stellar piece”– SAINT HERON



“A beautiful mixture of jazz and R&B… the sound of LA these days” – JAMIE CULLUM



‘Voyager’ is the third full-length album from LA’s Moonchild, whose
candid style of soul and new-school jazz has propelled them onto a
swirling, emotionally charged journey of the heart. Since 2014 they have
dedicated their time and energy into honing dreamlike and ethereal
compositions which explore the intricacies of relationships with
emotional nuance. The band cites influences like D’Angelo, Hiatus
Kaiyote and J. Most as playing a key part in expanding the group's
musical horizons which none more evident than on ‘Voyager’.


Following two years after their widely-praised album ‘Please Rewind’,
the album marks a new level of maturity in the band’s sound. Building on
their trademark sound, the band brought in a harpist and string players
to their usual line-up, enriching standout motifs; these range from the
importance of making time for loved ones, to the feeling of waking up
in the middle of the night and missing someone, to the deep bonds shared
between mother and child.


Since cementing themselves into the vibrant LA soul scene, Moonchild
have released two albums and collaborated or toured with
highly-respected names in the soul-jazz crowd including Stevie Wonder,
Jill Scott, India.Arie, Leela James, The Internet (Odd Future’s Syd tha
Kyd & Matt Martians) and more. Along the way, Moonchild have
accumulated a host of iconic supporters from Robert Glasper and Laura
Mvula to James Poyser, Jazzy Jeff, Jose James, 9th Wonder and Tyler, The
Creator who have all shown love for the band.



Since finishing the new album, the band are looking forward to
announcing a string of tour dates across USA, Europe and Asia. “We feel
like we progress and get better with each album and we’re really excited
to put this out.” Andris enthuses.
