“With only a couple of albums under their belt – 2012’s Be Free and 2014’s Please Rewind – horn/reed players Andris Mattson, Max Bryk, and Amber Navran of the jazz and soul trio Moonchild have built a considerable following among both the neo-soul-hungover crowd and traditional jazz lovers who don’t mind the genre’s evolution. For much of this, we have lead singer Amber Navran to thank, whose voice whistles and whooshes in and out of the band’s soul claps, horn melodies, and synth shades. This is most evident on Please Rewind’s “Don’t Wake Me,” “Just A Minute,” and “Nobody,” on which Navran’s voice evokes Erykah Badu-esque charm, but with a vocal-defying soprano that’s almost too cool for jazz and too controlled for soul. An arresting voice like hers knows no boundaries, and her bandmates Max and Andris create lush templates to adapt to any genre while still maintaining a jazz aesthetic. The end result is an infallible cross-breed of lush boom bap and soul power, aligning with Moonchild’s orbit. It’s no wonder artists like Stevie Wonder, Jill Scott, Robert Glasper, James Poyser, Jazzy Jeff, 9th Wonder, Giles Peterson, and Leela James have been singing their praises.”

Bobbie Morrone Trio
Bobbie Morrone launched his music career in approximately 2007. Since then, the fledgling act has recruited three other musicians who create their own slow-burning tunes blurring the lines between jazz and popular music. Rose Benge at AAA Music roughly compared him to Jack Johnson “if [Jack] were actually good.” This twist of humor reflects the originality of Morrone’s sound fraught with eclectic riffs and blues infused phrases. His most recent release was the EP “The Best I Can Be” from 2014 featuring three tracks of particularly distinct flavors.

Morrone’s favorite guilty pleasure playlist includes music like Beyonce’s “Love On Top.” In all seriousness, his focused sound is akin to the likes of Johnson and John Mayer. Morrone is working on a full-length album to be released in 2016 and is currently spinning his wheels in the Midwest.
