Consisting of two Russian-born vocalists and an American drummer, Boston-based band Major Moment has come from distant parts of the world to form a true modern alternative rock band.
Spearheaded by Andrey Borzykin (Vocals/Rhythm Guitar/Synth) and Sasha Razumova (Vocals/Keys), Major Moment has quickly developed a diverse and kinetic sound that integrates heavy guitar riffs, multi-layered synths, and melodic vocal blends. With their 2018 debut EP, one small stEP, the band just got nominated for “Best CD Artist” and “Best Rock Act” at the Worcester Music Awards.
In addition to “one small stEP” that was dedicated to the late Chester Bennington, Major Moment created an emotional tribute, “Leave Out All The Rest”. The distinguished music video for this song was released as a standalone asset to support the mission of a suicide prevention campaign, 320 Changes Direction. The video was produced by the Grammy-nominated Project 2 Studios and received more than 450,000 views in its first month. It’s being popular not only among the fans but Chester’s close friends and family as well, increasing band’s visibility on an international scale.
“Considering the destructive messages modern pop culture carelessly brings to society, we feel it’s our social responsibility to deliver an alternative message. One of love, trust, believing in ourselves and supporting one another.”
Just 3 months after releasing “one small stEP” Major Moment has already recorded 4 new follow-up singles with acclaimed producer Kevin Billingslea and six-time Grammy Winner Adam Ayan on board. One of the singles, “May Leave Scars”, won the John Lennon Songwriting Contest in Rock category, which was judged by such famous musicians like Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas, Art Alexakis of Everclear and many more. Moreover, it became the semi-finalist of the International Songwriting Competition. The band is planning to release all songs by May of 2019.
Major Moment is quickly gaining momentum. In their first year, they have already canvassed international venues and venues in and around MA and NH, received over 50 radio adds along with hype from Relix, Tattoo and Impose and performed at the 2019 winter NAMM show.
