Biography

Awkward Moment formed in 2005 while Nathan Slater was attending Greenville College in IL. The band started as a solo project and Nathan continued playing through 2007 when he met Justin Orrick in Columbia, MO who began playing drums for the band. The band’s popularity grew quickly around the small college town. Later that year, Orrick left the band but in 2008 Nathan met drummer Chad LaRoche and a tenacious Awkward Moment was once again ready to take the stage, this time with something to prove. Things have continued to go well for the band and, in 2009, after seeing him perform at a local open mic, the band asked Jake Fischbach to be their bassist. He agreed and added a whole new layer of depth and personality to the band and rounded out the band's sound and presentation. In early 2010, the band signed with Three Tree Entertainment and began playing venues that made Nathan’s vision of a show, not just a concert, a reality. Awkward Moment is currently enjoying playing shows and looking forward to the day they outgrow the Midwest. Nathan, Chad, and Jake are working on their first full length studio album due out in the spring of 2011.
