The alternative R&B and neo-soul group from Los Angeles looks set to tour Asia in May and June!
Comprising members Amber Navran, Max Bryk, and Andris Mattson, the trio will play in Taipei, Seoul, Osaka, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Jakarta, Melbourne, Brisbane and Auckland as part of their Little Ghost Asia-Australasia Tour.
Their fourth full-length, Little Ghost, was released last September.
Listen to the album here:
The group unveiled their debut Be Free in 2012. Please Rewind followed three years later, and 2017’s Voyager saw them ascend to new critical peaks. NPR Music touted the record among, “Five R&B Albums You Slept On In 2017,” and JAZZ FM named them “Soul Act of the Year” for 2018. “Cure” toppled 8 million Spotify streams, and “The List” exceeded 7 million plays on Youtube.
Along the way, the trio performed headline shows everywhere from the United States and Europe to Asia, and supported other tours for the likes of The Internet, Kamasi Washington, and more.
The group have attracted support from international tastemakers including the likes of Gilles Peterson (BBC 6Music), WHUR-DC, KCRW, BBC1 XTRA, NTS and LA 102.3, and earned praise from a host of iconic artists including Robert Glasper, Laura Mvula, James Poyer, Jazzy Jeff, Jose James, Tyler The Creator, Saint Heron – and the legendary Stevie Wonder, all who have showed love for the band.
In 2014 the Motown-label-hero swept Moonchild off their feet with an incredible offer. DJ Kevin Nash, from Stevie Wonder’s radio station L.A. 102.3 KJLH, called up the band offering them the chance to open for Wonder in just 24 hours.
Wonder later told the group that he had heard their music just the day before and loved it so much that he ordered the radio station to invite them down as performers for his House Full of Toys Benefit Concert – the ultimate honour.
Effortlessly cracking the LA scene, Moonchild’s sound epitomises the LA mix of intricate, progressive musicality with the classic laid-back and blissful sound that has been famously associated with the West Coast legacy across the decades.
“There’s so much good music coming out of LA right now, a real creative energy surrounding the city”.
