Spearheaded by two Russian-born vocalists, Boston-based band Major Moment has come from distant parts of the world to form a true modern 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 won “Best Rock Production” and got nominated for “Best Lyric Video” at the Independent Music Awards, as well as got nominated in two categories at the Hollywood Music In Media Awards for “Best Rock” and “Best Production”.
“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.”
While working on “one small stEP” the band felt very confident in their team that included acclaimed producer Kevin Billingslea and six-time Grammy Winner Adam Ayan. Just 2 months after the release they were back into the studio, and less than 6 months since their debut record, the band put out a follow-up EP called “The Sequel”.
One of the singles, “May Leave Scars”, won The Lennon Award and “Best Rock Song” 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 Sequel’s first single “Living Your Life Like This” has been streamed over 100,000 times on Spotify in its first month, and became a semi-finalist in Rock category at the international music competition, Unsigned Only. The lyric video of this song currently has over 600,000 views across social media platforms.
After starting off 2019 on a high note by performing on Hilton stage at the winter NAMM show in LA, Major Moment, motivated by their success, is now working on new singles and plans for 2020, and is currently in pre-production stage of producing 4 new songs…

In addition to “one small stEP” that was dedicated to the late Chester Bennington (one of the band’s biggest inspirations), 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 is now almost at 1M views. In October 2019, this music video has been selected and screened as part of the Tri-Cities International Film Festival.

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.”
