TORONTO, ON. – RCA Nashville breakout rising star Niko Moon will release his debut album GOOD TIME on Aug. 27. A new song off the project, “SMALL TOWN STATE OF MIND,” is available now. Listen to the new track and pre-add/pre-save GOOD TIME HERE.
“My debut album GOOD TIME is almost here!” said Moon. “I’ve poured my heart and soul into making this record and I can’t wait for y’all to hear it! The album is GOOD TIME vibes front to back so put it on, grab a cold one and turn it up to 10!”
Produced by Moon alongside longtime collaborator and friend Joshua Murty, GOOD TIME features the No. 1 in US, Platinum-certified title track as well as Moon’s latest single, “NO SAD SONGS.” Fans can expect more of Moon’s trademark positivity and the “one-man party” (Billboard) to continue on his highly anticipated full-length project, as HITS lauds, “Moon has found the sweet spot for intriguing rhythms holding small-town values in a roots-music vat that expands modern country.” Accented by banjo forward, swaggy back beats and guitars that tang as much as twang, GOOD TIME evokes an old school sort of country along with evident influence from Michael Franti, John Prine, the Eagles and Outkast through songs that simmer, stir and sizzle.
Fresh from his nomination for Breakthrough Artist of the Year at the 2021 MusicRow Awards, the “smooth vocalist” (Taste of Country) and exciting entertainer is gearing up for his opening stint on Lady A’s WHAT A SONG CAN DO Tour starting July 29 in Uncasville, CT.

ABOUT NIKO MOON: RCA Nashville breakthrough recording artist Niko Moon kicked off 2021 by topping multiple charts with his Platinum-selling debut single “GOOD TIME.” With more than 297 million on-demand streams, “GOOD TIME” helped catapult Moon to No. 1 on Billboard’s Emerging Artists chart and has been lauded as “a bottle-passin’ campfire daydream” (Tennessean), solidifying the genre-defying entertainer’s reputation as “One of the most genuine and creative artists in country music right now” (THINK Country Music ). Born in Tyler, TX, Moon relocated to Douglasville, GA at age 10, equidistance from hip-hop hub Atlanta and country breeding ground Newnan, GA, inspiring his artful persona: a mix of hooky melodies, shrewd wordplay and edgy, electronic beats. With six songwriting No. 1 hits (Zac Brown Band’s “Loving You Easy,” “Homegrown,” “Beautiful Drug,” “Keep Me In Mind,” and “Heavy Is The Head”; Dierks Bentley’s “Gone”) plus co-pen credits on singles by Ashley Monroe, among others, Moon continues to turn heads and has been named an artist to watch by CMT, Amazon Music, MusicRow, Country Swag, and more. His debut album GOOD TIME will release Aug. 27.
