After their debut Australasian dates were cancelled in June 2020 due to the pandemic, the LA-based neo-soul trio MOONCHILD will finally bring their fusion of alternative R&B, jazz and neo-soul to Auckland’s Tuning Fork on November 15 - a part of an extensive world tour in support of their latest album 'Starfruit'!

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.
