A combination of three multi-instrumentalists – Amber Navran, Andris Mattson and Max Bryk – Moonchild has collaborated with the likes of Kamasi Washington, Stevie Wonder, The Internet and Jill Scott. Their ever-evolving fusion of alternative R&B and neo-soul has been compared to the likes of Tom Misch and Jordan Rakei, and the band received widespread acclaim following the release of their 2019 album little ghost and the resulting NPR Tiny Desk Session, which has racked up over 4 million views.
Moonchild’s latest record star fruit features collaborations from Lalah Hathaway, Rapsody, Tank and The Bangas, Alex Isley, Ill Camille, Mumu Fresh, Chantae Cann and Josh Johnson. In addition to the extensive list of featured artists, Moonchild is experimenting with new synths and sounds. While these textures and tonal palettes are still rooted in their trademarks, they rise star fruit onto new and impressive musical terrain from Moonchild.
Ticket sales start on September 30th. Full tour and ticket information can be found here.
