Different Skies is the 1994 debut album by singer and songwriter Cara Jones who, up until its release, had operated solely as a songwriter for other artists. The album established Jones as an artist in her own right, selling unusual amounts for an indy release and making her the darling of Tokyo radio.[citation needed]
