Although singer-songwriter Niko Moon identifies as being a country music artist, his music shows an interesting mix of country, pop, R&B, hip-hop and reggae influences. Born Nicholas Cowan in Tyler, Texas, his father was a truck driver and musician, who influenced Moon's musical interests as a child and encouraged him to take up the drums and later to teach himself the guitar. A talented athlete, Moon won a scholarship to Samford University in Alabama, but soon his love of music became more important to him than his studies and he dropped out to concentrate on his music career. It was at this time that he met Zac Brown and collaborated with him as a songwriter on tracks such as 'Homegrown', 'Keep Me in Mind', 'Loving You Easy' and 'Heavy Is the Head' which were all released in 2015. Brown and Moon joined forces with Ben Simonetti in 2017 to form the electronic dance group Sir Rosevelt, but after a couple of years, Moon decided to branch out on his own. He signed for RCA Nashville and, in 2019, released singles 'Good Time', 'Drunk Over You' and 'Way Back'. The tracks were immediate hits online and 'Good Time' was streamed nearly three million times in the first few months of its release.
