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
