Vigilant is a 4 member rock group including Jack (bass), Jordan Ferreira (guitar), Padget Nanton III (drums).Fronting the band is Chloe Demetria whose exhilarating vocal style contributes a supercharged urgency to their message.
They spent much of the last year recording their debut album Born To Kill which presents ten songs that will reveal another perspective to those turned on by mindful, massive-sounding bands like Muse, TOOL, Metallica, and Rage Against The Machine. It was produced and engineered by Jack. David Isaac (3-time Grammy Winning Producer/Mix Engineer whose legendary resume includes Eric Clapton, Aretha Franklin, and Stevie Wonder) as exec producer and mix engineer for the album was a constant mentor to the band through steady contact and magi like insight. Additional studio work was done by Randy Emata (also highly respected Steve Miller, Lou Reed) in Los Angeles, along with Jawad Mills who ran the drum sessions that took place in Jacksonville, Florida as well as Brian Matheson of Skyline studio in San Francisco.
They all show deep love for all kinds of music throughout the album, but they’ve definitely hit on a sound that can only be described as Vigilant. Chloe has a gorgeously expressive voice with no antecedent that comes to mind. Jack’s playing is some of the heaviest and grungiest and is comparable to the likes of rock’s legendary bass predecessors such as John Entwistle, Geezer Butler, Rex Brown and Cliff Burton. He shows his virtuosity and innovativeness by getting down on solos like the ones featured on “Born To Kill” & “Get It” that you just have to hear for yourself. Jordan’s guitar work is ungodly to say the least. With so much raw energy and intensity across the board, from the power in his chunky riffs to the vocal-esque solos that are ornamented with some lighting speed runs, it’s no surprise how Bumblefoot (Ron Thal, solo artist & guitarist with Guns & Roses) can say, “I think that Jordan is one of the people that’s the next generation of these guitar guys that everyone is gonna be naming and saying,’yeah, that guy!’ “
Vigilant is currently working on their show and preparing to take the extraordinary sound of Born To Kill on the road.
