Napak “Dom” Boonruang – aka Tiny Moon – is perhaps best known as the lead singer of Bangkok-based all-girls band The Grumps. But she has established herself as a solo force to be reckoned with.
A drama and music graduate of Rajamangala Institute Of Technology in 2003, she first came to prominence as the lead songwriter, rhythm guitarist and vocalist with the Unicorn Girls, a six-piece all-girls band.
Starting in 2006, she began a regular stint at Thaitanium bar on Soi 22 and, over the next 15 years, has played just about every well known pub, music bar and brewhouse in Bangkok.
In 2010, she started teaching children singing at guitar at EakQ House Of Learning.
Outisde of Thailand, Tiny Moon performed at Hard Rock Cafe Vietnam in 2009, Moods Pub in Monaco in 2010 and at the South of France Music Festival in 2011 and 2012.

Earth debuted on the Bangkok music scene in 2008, whilst at the same time teaching herself how to speak English through song lyrics. Just a few years later she has become a well-known figure across Bangkok. Her huge voice and personality showcase her stature.
A turning point in her career was when Earth was invited to collaborate with Marie Wilson in Australia. Marie’s years of experience in the industry in the USA and Australia gave Earth the confidence to take on a brand new challenge. Just a few years after learning English, Earth is now writing her own songs in English, with amazing insight.
She can be found in venues across Bangkok, and is commonly asked to sing at many of the most prestigious venues across Thailand. Embassies, rooftop bars and hi-society functions. As a director and Thailand representative, Earth now uses her status on the scene to foster new talent in a search for “Girls Rock Asia”
