Looking for a guitarist for the alt. metal band (Framingham)

Pop metal band Major Moment is looking for a metal / metalcore-oriented guitarist.

Our band consists of career-oriented hard-working musicians with ambitious goals. In 5 years we've made a lot of noise not only in the Boston music scene but worldwide, and have a decent library of songs (produced and engineered by Kevin Billingslea of the Halo Studio, and mastered by legendary Ted Jensen and Adam Ayan), shot 10 music videos, gained over 3M streams on Spotify and 1.6M views on YouTube, received international coverage in major press outlets, TV, and radio, including rotation on SiriusXM Octane, received multiple songwriting and film awards, performed locally and internationally, at 2023 Louder Than Life festival, 2021 Blue Ridge Rock Festival and 2019 NAMM Show in LA. We are on a mission to push this band as far as we possibly can!

You can find us on any streaming service and social media to see where we're at.

We can't wait to get to know you, if:

✓ you are a team player and ready to work hard to help the band reach its goals. That means that besides playing your instrument and attending rehearsals, you will be expected to take on a share of business-related tasks and responsibilities on a daily basis;
✓ you like the songs that we already released, and are willing to learn the parts as is;
✓ you have the financial ability to support yourself and your passion (music) with this band, which means investing in studio time, photoshoots, music video shoots, promotion, touring, merch, etc.
✓ you have a relatively flexible schedule to be able to rehearse, perform, attend photoshoots and music videos, help with their planning and everyday tasks, go on tours a couple of times a year;
✓ you are in your 20s - 30s. We would love to ideally have a band member of our age so the band looks cohesive;
✓ you have or will be willing to buy a guitar modeler: HX Stomp, Helix, Kemper, AxeFX, Quad Cortex, etc.


Unfortunately, this won’t be the right fit for you, if...

✕ you are looking to get paid when other members don’t. We would love to find a team member and a partner, not a session player. We are nowhere near making money at this point but we believe if we have the right team, it's just a matter of time.
✕ you JUST want to play guitar, have fun, and "see where this goes" (this usually goes nowhere). We don't jam. We treat it as a business, so rehearsals only come before it's time to play shows or go on tour.
✕ you are not willing to invest time and money into the band. We can't believe we have to state the obvious but things like paying rent for the rehearsal space, recording / promo expenses, transportation, and accommodations while on tour should be expected to be split evenly between all members. If you can help with designing, video editing, new content creation, email pitches, email marketing, etc. we will go further faster.
✕ you don't have a car... well, yep, that's gonna be a big problem.


If you wanna join us, please, send us a short bio and a video of you playing. Thanks!
Texts are ok too. six I 7 - five 4 tree - for 7 seven 9.


Short-term plans are:

- promotion of our first full-length album
- writing and recording new songs
- production of new music videos
- touring and playing festivals in 2024
- shopping for a record label / management
