“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.”
Spearheaded by two Russian-born vocalists, Boston-based band Major Moment has come from distant parts of the world to form a true modern alternative rock band.
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 got nominated for Independent Music Awards in “Best Production – Rock” (the only rock record nominated) and “Best Lyric Video”; for Hollywood Music In Media Awards in “Best Rock”; as well as “Best CD Artist” and “Best Rock Act” at the Worcester Music Awards.
Just 3 months after releasing “one small stEP” Major Moment has already recorded four 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 Lennon Award and “Best Rock” at the John Lennon Songwriting Contest. This year’s judging panel included such famed artists as Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas, Natasha Bedingfield, and more. This song also became the semi-finalist of the International Songwriting Competition. The single “Living Your Life Like This” has been streamed over 100,000 times on Spotify in its first month. Together, these four songs formed a new EP called “The Sequel” that was released on April 25th, 2019.
Major Moment is quickly gaining momentum, canvassing venues in and around MA and NH, as well as international venues. They received over 60 radio adds along with hype from Relix, Tattoo and Impose and performed at the 2019 winter NAMM show.

The distinguished video for their tribute song “Leave Out All The Rest” was released as a standalone asset to create awareness for mental health and support the suicide prevention campaign, 320 Changes Direction. The video was produced by the Grammy-nominated Project 2 Studios and features innovative light and movement effects that fluidly capture the emotive nature of the anthemic song. Major Moment is getting very positive feedback not only from fans, but from Chester’s close friends and family as well, increasing band’s visibility on an international scale. The video has generated more than 450 000 views in its first month.

ONE SMALL STEP
“One impressive thing about one small stEP is the diversity of sound within songs. There is a lot of variety in the pacing, tone and the way in which synths are utilized. They really do cram a lot of creativity into each song. Clearly, the band has their own distinct sound, which has proven to be able to stand on its own.”
