Moonchild is a combination of three independent, strong-willed spirits—Amber Navran [vocals, tenor saxophone, flute, keyboards, synth bass, drum programming], Andris Mattson [trumpet, flugelhorn, keyboards, synth bass, guitar, drum programming], and Max Bryk [alto saxophone, clarinet, keyboards, synth bass, drum programming].
The resulting union yields an ever-evolving fusion of alternative R&B and neo-soul. For as singular as each personality may be, they all participate equally in writing, producing, tracking, and mixing their records, collaborating as true equal partners. Not only do they create as a unit, but they also evolve, grow, and transform as one.
As Moonchild, the whole becomes greater than the sum of its parts—never more so than on their fourth full-length, Little Ghost.
he 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 Wonders 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. Andris affirms – “There’s so much good music coming out of LA right now, a real creative energy surrounding the city”.
