After their debut Australasian dates were cancelled in June 2020 due to the pandemic, the Californian trio will finally bring their fusion of alternative R&B, jazz and neo-soul to Australia.
LA-based neo-soul trio Moonchild have today announced Australia and New Zealand dates for November this year as part of an extensive world tour in support of their latest album Starfruit. Their Australia and New Zealand tour will see them head to Auckland’s Tuning Fork on November 15, Melbourne’s Night Cat on November 16 and Sydney’s Oxford Art Factory on November 17.

A combination of three multi-instrumentalists — Amber Navran, Andris Mattson and Max Bryk – Moonchild have collaborated with names such as 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 after the release of their 2019 album Little Ghost and the resulting NPR Tiny Desk Session that has logged over 4 million views.

Moonchild’s latest record Starfruit boasts collaborations from Lalah Hathaway, Rapsody, Tank and The Bangas, Alex Isley, Ill Camille, Mumu Fresh, Chantae Cann and Josh Johnson. Alongside the extensive list of featured artists, the release sees Moonchild experimenting with new synths and sounds. While still rooted in their trademark tones, these textures and sound palettes elevate Starfruit to new and impressive Moonchild musical territory.
