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

Think Back 02:56
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

Now and Then 03:57
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
11.
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

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.
