about

“The magnificent Moonchild… good work” – GILLES PETERSON

“Love” – JILL SCOTT

“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.

Track Name: Cure
I’ve had my eyes on you for awhile and though
it seems the time isn’t right I know
you want the love that I’ve got to give

we laughed and kissed til the sun took us by surprise
telling the whole truth about our lives
I’m so in love with that you’ve got to give

I can show you that love is the cure for heartache
let me show you baby, don’t be afraid of a good thing
I can show you that love is the cure for heartache

you think your heart needs to hurt for awhile longer
live all alone til it makes you stronger
learn who you are without her love

I know, I’ve been there before but I won’t wait
for a love like yours I can’t hesitate
stay awhile and let me change your mind

I can show you that love is the cure for heartache
let me show you baby, don’t be afraid of a good thing
I can show you that love is the cure for heartache
Track Name: 6am
I know it by heart
but I still like to read it from the start
offering a remedy
sweeter than he used to be

spend the love we saved, soon
win the waiting game, soon

I hope you’re the same
though I’ve seen everything around me change
refuge in the memory
sweeter than the truth to me

spend the love we saved, soon
win the waiting game, soon

hold on a little longer
tired hands growing stronger
hold on a little longer
waiting for you
Track Name: Every Part (For Linda)
silly dancing 'round the house
laughing who knows what about
wine and popcorn before bed, look to the light

always craving something sweet
always doing something for somebody
every time that I turn around, I look to the light

to see
you smiling back at me

oh you’re with me all the time
everything I do
you’re always on my mind
you’re in every part of me

oh I know that I traveled too far
never wanted to break your heart
believe, you’re the one that gets me through I look to the light

nobody’s ever gonna love me the way you do
I know, it’ll always be the truth
every time I lose myself I look to the light

to see
you smiling back at me

oh you’re with me all the time
everything I do
you’re always on my mind
you’re in every part of me
Track Name: Hideaway
please baby, don’t you leave for you all of my shit can wait
we’ll push it all aside and we can share a hideaway

please baby, don’t you leave for me all of your shit can wait
we’ll push it all a side and we can share a hideaway

I’ll say anything to make you stay
I just wanna lay the day away
you can’t leave now, we’ve only had a taste
of heaven here in your embrace

no matter what I’ve got to do
there’s always time, time for you
no matter what I’m going through
there’s always time, time for you
there’s time for you, there’s time for you
Track Name: The List
I hate you make me nervous
I always say the wrong thing
it doesn’t matter anyway
ain’t nothing gonna change, no

I hate the situation
I’m always running in to you
and when I don’t I’m hoping to
I hate feeling so confused

don’t wanna feel the way I do, it’s just what I’m going through
don’t wanna feel the way I do, it’s just what I’m going through

I hate that you’re perfect
no way your ass comes up so clean
somebody’s playing tricks on me
can’t see what I wanna see

I hate that you still call me
just when I done made up my mind
to leave your perfect ass behind
I hear you sounding so fine

don’t wanna feel the way I do, it’s just what I’m going through
don’t wanna feel the way I do, it’s just what I’m going through

don’t wanna feel the way I do, it’s just what I’m going through
don’t wanna feel the way I do, it’s just what I’m going through

how else can I let you go
when the man I know
makes me wanna be your girl
outliving the love I saved
fighting dreams away
oh I wanna be your girl

I hate that I can’t tell you
left guessing if you’ll ever know
and trying not to let it show
mind games just to let you go

I hate that you don’t want it
I hate that I’m still so sweet
as if it might change something
when you’re ready you’ll remember me

I hate I know your birthday
I know all of your favorite shit
when you were talking I was listening
yet I still can’t win

I hate that you don’t call me
I’d like to think that we’re still cool
and now I’m feeling like a fool
every time it rings I hope it’s you

I was so good to you good to you
I’d be so good for you good for you
I know I’m good for you good for you
because I’m good to you

I was so good to you good to you
I’d be so good to you good to you
I know I’m good for you good for you
because I’m good to you

I just wanna be free
Track Name: Doors Closing
you think my love is an open door
no no you can’t come and go as you please
you think my love is an open door
always coming 'round here stealing my peace
you think my love is an open door
keep it up baby, I’m taking away your keys
you think my love is an open door
one day he’s gonna ask you to leave
Track Name: Run Away
been trying to
look the other way
like we never knew love
giving you this space
all I’ve got to say stuck
spinning in my head
I’m done, I’m not gonna pretend no

I should have known it’d be this hard
to let you go, free my heart
the little things drive me insane
I’m not gonna run away no

I’m not gonna run away from our love
I’m not gonna run away from our love
I’m not gonna run away from our love
I’m not gonna run away from our love

still makes me smile and
I’m not gonna hide it
learn to love what’s left cause
I’m too tired to fight it
so ready to move on
but not to forget you baby
you meant something to me, more than something

I should have known it’d be this hard
to let you go, free my heart
the little things drive me insane
I’m not gonna run away no

I’m not gonna run away from our love
I’m not gonna run away from our love
I’m not gonna run away from our love
I’m not gonna run away from our love
Track Name: Think Back
don’t know why I feel this way, it’s been a couple months in the making
but there ain’t no escaping
the doubt scratching at my heart

and though I know that I don’t wanna have to call you up and meet you at some coffee shop
just to find out how you been
lately I’ve been wondering

it’s just a phase, it’s just a phase
I pray it’s just a phase

think back
think back

back when we were making lists of things we’ve never done, living them one by one
everything so new together
even the weather

coming through with all the little things I like, I don’t remember even telling you
you make me wanna be so good
that you don’t leave me even if you should

it’s just a phase, it’s just a phase
I pray it’s just a phase

think back
think back
Track Name: Now and Then
deeper in to the blue, why do the colors fade
I opened my hands but the sand finds a way to stay
reminding me

coming back home everything breathes a new life, a new life
visions from now and then turn to a butterfly

now and then
remember when
your path is proof
of strength within
just turn around

take it in deep, the cold and the evergreens
let it crystalize there inside, quietly in between, remembering

coming back painted with time in another life
visions from now and then rise to a new light

now and then
remember when
your path is proof
of strength within
just turn around
Track Name: Change Your Mind
I have traced the dots and back again
searching for some truth
oh the thickest lines point to the end
I know you love me I do

finding bliss in half your heart
defining love as patience art
steady feet will find a way
just keep saying it’s okay

I’m scared of loving you
I tried to stop, but there’s nothing I can do
I’m gonna give you the best of my love
and pray you change your mind, pray you change your mind

oh a change is gonna come is playing
loud and strong
and from the way you’re looking at me
how could it be wrong

happiest and lowest down
uncertainty’s familiar sound
I won’t open up the door
but I can’t take it any more

I’m scared of loving you
I tried to stop, but there’s nothing I can do
I’m gonna give you the best of my love
and pray you change your mind, pray you change your mind

I’ve given you so many reasons to stay
showing you the joys of love
and I’ll find another thousand ways
I can I can, and I want to
maybe I’m the fool, maybe I’m the fool

I’m scared of loving you
I tried to stop, but there’s nothing I can do
I’m gonna give you the best of my love
and pray you change your mind, pray you change your mind

I tried to stop, there’s nothing I can do
I tried to stop, there’s nothing I can do
Track Name: Show The Way
something turned my love to mystery
you couldn’t hear the things I didn’t say
caught up in dreams of who I want to be
fooled by a feeling that the heart can wait

but love fades
words won’t hold the weight
please stay
show the way you feel

can’t sleep, can’t focus, no I won’t let you go
I know, I wanna spend my time to earn your love
here it is, let it overflow
finding new ways to show you you’re the one

cause love fades
word’s won’t hold the weight
please stay
show the way you feel

life feels right, living for the ones you love
up all night, living for the ones you love
can’t help but smile, living for the ones you love
life feels right

life feels right, living for the ones you love
oh I’m up all night, living for the ones you love
can’t help but smile, living for the ones you love
life feels right

cause love fades
don’t you hesitate
show the way, show the way you feel
Track Name: Let You Go
listen to me cause I’ve told you
I understand the situation
you came as a sweet surprise, the time was right, no need to
talk through every complication

come on baby don’t stress about it
time will do it’s thing for you and me
every man’s gonna have to compete
with that night at the beach, you know what I mean sugar
still find you looking at me that way, oh and I love it

I know, I know, always have a piece of you in my heart
I know, I know, always have a piece of you in my heart

I won’t be the last to tell you
what you got to give is so good
I know that I shouldn’t take it, should I take it
oh, every part of me wishes that I could

but I’m not gonna stress about it
time gifted me a memory
every man’s gonna have to compete
with that night at the beach, you know what I mean sugar
don’t wanna spoil a good thing so I gotta let you go

I know, I know, always have a piece of you in my heart
I know, I know, always have a piece of you in my heart
