Since becoming a student at Texas Christian University, he has established a growing fan base in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. His piano-based pop sound has been described as having a hint of jazz and reflecting the influences of musicians like Ben Folds, Elton John and Coldplay.

Halperin has released two EPs, “You are the Moon and Make or Break, and he had two songs featured on The Real World: New Orleans last month. He has performed with artists such as Jon McLaughlin, Matt Wertz, Andy Davis, the Ying Yang Twins and Green River Ordinance. A music video for his song “She Runs gained viral status on You Tube this summer, www.youtube.com/watch?v=G94-Z4RDLzs. More information can be found at www.timhalperin.com.
