This trio of musicians based in Los Angeles aims to bring a new sound to the neo-soul genre while drawing upon other influences such as Erykah Badu, Bon Iver, John Coltrane, and D’Angelo.
Max Bryk, Andris Mattson, and Amber Navran met at USC where they all studied jazz performance. After touring together as a horn section in 2011, they began co-writing and recording their first album “Be Free.” “Be Free” was released in late April 2012 and features soloists Ben Wendel, Russell Ferrante, John Daversa, and rapper Harry Mack.
Since their album release, Moonchild has opened for Stevie Wonder and Georgia Anne Muldrow, played shows up the west coast, released music videos, and received much attention from neo-soul blogs all over the internet. They currently sell albums at record stores around the US and are receiving airplay in Austin, Chicago and Los Angeles’ own 102.3. Moonchild continues to perform and has started working on their second album - to be released in May 2013.
Nomadic soul songstress Emily Elbert was raised in Texas on a musical diet of Antonio Carlos Jobim, James Taylor, Jimi Hendrix, and '60s radio. Now at 24, she has played over 600 shows throughout the US and in 15 countries around the world, from Peru to Palestine, and Turkey to Thailand. Emily's music has won awards in the U.S. and U.K., garnered accolades from publications including the Washington Post and Glamour Magazine, and YouTube videos of her performances have attracted more than 1.5 million views from music lovers worldwide. Her third independent album, a live, full-band recording entitled “Alive, In Love,” was released in May 2012. The Boston Folk Festival notes, "Emily is among the most glowing of the upcoming generation of American singer-songwriters, if 'upcoming' even applies to this phenom any longer."
