We've been enamored with Moonchild's unique blend of jazz and R&B since we first heard their dreamy sound. So, as you'd expect, we're super excited for their upcoming album, Voyager. They gave us a listen to what they have in store with the mellow-smooth track "Cure" and its accompanying video. Now they're giving us another lovely number with their latest single, "Show The Way."
Like "Cure," "Show The Way" finds the band waxing on everyone's favorite topic: love. This time around, though, the band is looking for a way to express their love. Lead vocalist Amber Navran beautifully and delicately weaves the tale over luscious keys and guitar that sounds as soft and light as a cloud on the verse. But, just when you think things couldn't get any more sublime, the song's chorus kicks in, treating us to a masterful mix of Amber's songbird-like vocals and the gorgeous, soothing instrumentation that truly must be heard in all its deserving glory. The song continues walking the fine line between jazz and R&B throughout, taking us to unexpected highs that have us wishing that Voyager was coming tomorrow rather than at month's end.
However, if you want to see the band create that musical magic that they do live, you'll only have to wait until this weekend. That's when Moonchild is set to embark on a brand new tour in support of the upcoming release. They'll kick things off on Saturday in Carson, California at Sol Venue before taking the show to all over the continental United States, including Dallas, New Orleans, Atlanta, New York, Chicago and Oakland.
