MUSIC FOR YOUR EARS | REVIEW Second Chance by Different Moon

We are offered a real American singer and songwriter called Jim Piper. In fact, Piper decided to honour his childhood friend and musical partner, Mike Smith, with one of the five unreleased songs they originally written together. For the release, he decided to change the band’s name to Different Moon and this will be their name going forward. Over the last eight years, he has been widely recognised, obtaining over twenty international songwriting nominations from such entities as the American Songwriting Awards, the ISC International Songwriting Competition, the UK International Songwriting Contest, and SongwriterUniverse magazine. It’s not hard to imagine that the artist is affected by his partner’s death and also, on the other hand, is encouraged by new fans he’s drawing in. 

His music reminds me of bands such as early Cold Play, with epic qualities and a particular cinematic mood. I like this song, Second Chance, particularly because it’s longer than most and a pleasure to listen to and lose yourself in. The piano sounds are really captivating, full of positive vibes. On occasion, the effect is electrifying.

The track gives freedom; the energy to advance in life despite difficulties along the path. An amazing melody originates from a combination of violin, piano, percussion. What’s more, in this song as in others as well, he let his passion for music be felt through his vocals, using different tones of voice to give strength and sense to the music. There is no doubt lyrics carry additional emotional weight. As always, he’s able to craft a perfect totality, to the delight of his many fans.

The single will leave you in no doubt of the unique and extraordinary talent of Piper. While the music of Different Move is changing over time it is not changing in any real or deeper sense: that is, it is continually forging a combination of adult contemporary, alt-rock and pop genre. All in all, Second Chance is a melodic ballad worthy of attention from anyone who appreciates good and original music. The absolutely perfect intonation and the majestic voice of the musician says it all.
