The story of Major Moment is one of passion, patience, and perseverance; never giving up on your dreams no matter the circumstances.
Born and raised in a small Russian city, Andrey Borzykin (Lead Vocals/Rhythm Guitar) grew up no stranger to music. Andrey’s love of rock was fostered by his father’s extensive record collection of Western music, once prohibited in the USSR. From the classic sounds of The Beatles and Led Zeppelin to the modern edge of Keane, Nine Inch Nails, Cold, the Chili Peppers and Linkin Park, Andrey has a broad range of musical influences that cover a wide variety of sounds. In 2005, after a short visit to the United States, Andrey decided to move to Boston permanently to pursue his American Dreams…
Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, in Criciúma, Brazil, Gabriel De Mattia De Oliveira (Lead Guitar) was just picking up his guitar for the first time at the age of 12. Inspired by numerous rock, jazz, blues, funk and country guitarists, such as SRV, John Mayer, The Edge, Slash, John Frusciante, and Mateus Asato, Gabriel was relentless in practicing his guitar playing and would sometimes spend 8-10 hours a day mastering his craft. It would not be until 2017 that he moved to Boston in search of adventures and new lifestyle. From here, Andrey and Gabriel meet…
Alexandra “Sasha” Razumova (Backing Vocals) makes success look easy! Behind the scenes, she invests extensive hours of hard work in every endeavor she pursues (including her former professional tennis career). She has always challenged herself to be the best, and music is no different. Having learned English by translating and singing lyrics of her favorite songs, music is what truly drives her! Inspired by both, raw rocking vocals of bands like Linkin Park, Papa Roach, Muse, along with melodic approaches of artists such as Chris Martin of Coldplay, Gwen Stefani, Avril Lavigne and Amy Winehouse, Sasha adds a gentle touch and beautiful harmonies to Major Moment’s music.
Adam Soucy (Drums) currently acts as a session player for Major Moment, and in a short time has been able to add extra strength to the band's rhythm section. Adam is something of a Swiss Army Knife of a musician whose unique approach to the drums is informed by an almost schizophrenic array of influences. It’s not uncommon to catch him listening to The Bad Plus, Björk, and Meshuggah all in the same day! Known for his work with Horns Become Halos, Paola Bennet and Anna Madsen, Adam now steps into the role of a heavy-hitter with Major Moment, taking the arrangements head-on as something he sees as “an interesting new challenge” in his musical journey.
In Major Moment, generations, nationalities, cultures, influences, and experiences converge to feed the strong desire they all share: to create modern-sounding, yet meaningful, rock music that comes from the heart. The band is currently working with studios around New England, producing their first record titled "ONE SMALL STEP", scheduled to be released Summer of 2018.
