When you come across a band as multi-cultural, passionate, and talented as Boston’s Major Moment, you have to pay attention. Combining captivating original sounds of alternative rock with their international roots, Major Moment knows how to create new worlds within their music. Inspired by acts like Linkin Park, Nine Inch Nails, 30 Seconds To Mars and more, the band is now on a mission to inspire others, encourage them to follow their dreams, and learn to appreciate life.
With each member developing a passion for music at a young age, it is no surprise that the Boston act came together, even when originally on different parts of the globe. Andrey Borzykin (Vocals/Rhythm Guitar) left Russia, while Gabriel De Mattia De Oliveira (Lead Guitar) ventured from Brazil to eventually meet with Alexandra “Sasha” Razumova (Vocals) and Adam Soucy (Drums) in the United States. They are a band of different cultures, nationalities and experiences, which all join to create the uniqueness that is Major Moment.
This September, Major Moment brings you One Small StEP, a record of various strong topics, including relationship, perspective, and loss. With acclaimed producer Kevin Billingslea and six-time Grammy Winner Adam Ayan on board, the band considers the record to be their greatest accomplishment yet.
“Kevin helped us build on and fine tune our material. Every step of the way with him felt like a milestone; from listening to our early demos, to sketching out the first drafts in pre-production, to hearing that first mix after principle tracking,” says Andrey, “It’s amazing to think about how far we’ve come in such a short time.”
What makes the record even more special, is its dedication to Chester Bennington of Linkin Park, one of the band’s biggest inspirations. One Small StEP features a #makechesterproud tagline, and it shows that Major Moment is the genuine and caring group of people that they hope to be remembered as.
Major Moment is for fans of: 30 Seconds To Mars, Linkin Park, and Muse.
