Different Moon was founded in 2015 by North Carolina (USA) songwriter Jim Piper. During his high school years, Piper met a fellow keyboardist and songwriter, Mike Smith. Over the next 20 years they collaborated on 50 songs together under the moniker Desert Rain. Then at the early age of 37, Smith passed away. Piper decided to honor his friend by releasing the debut Different Moon EP 'Desert Rain' in 2015, introducing to the public five of their co-written songs. Encouraged by several intl. songwriting honors and interest from new fans, Piper decided to continue writing and releasing new songs as Different Moon. Between 2016 and 2019, Piper released two additional EP's and several singles, while receiving over twenty intl. songwriting nominations. While the music of Different Moon continues to evolve, its foundation is a blend of alternative, pop, and rock melodically crafted together.

Thanks for the stars on "Sidetracked", Jim. You may recognize it as part of the instrumental from "Colors of the Brave". I also cut it down to 2:00 minutes for an ad on another site...trying to recycle some of my tracks...going green...haha! Susan
