Different Moon was founded in 2015 by North Carolina (USA) songwriter Jim Piper. At the early age of 37, Piper's long-time high school friend and fellow keyboardist/songwriting partner, Mike Smith, passed away. Piper decided to honor his friend by sharing with the public five unreleased songs co-written by Piper/Smith, thereby releasing a debut EP under the artist name Different Moon. Encouraged by interest from new fans and driven by a passion for music, Piper decided to continue writing and releasing new songs as Different Moon. Between 2016 and 2021, Piper has released three EP's, twelve singles, and received over twenty international songwriting nominations. The music of Different Moon continues to evolve, but its foundation is a blend of pop, rock, and alternative 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

Hi Susan, cool song! I hadn't heard that one yet from your catalog. It was neat to hear you write a rock song. :) I noticed that Chris helped produce that one.

Yep, doing well. I've written my first Contemporary Christian song, which releases August 2. I'll share that with the B'jam community too. Hope you're well too! Jim

Yes, a rock song! And, yes, Chris and Sundown did it all. I have a few songs I think of as Christian Crossovers, like "I Looked Up To", which won the Dallas Contest in that category last year. I don't think I'll enter the Dallas this year. Something for you to think about...a little cash in that contest :) I look forward to hearing your song! Susan
