Exigent, meaning “demanding” and “urgent”, is the word that started it all.
In 2018, guitarist Jacob Elalouf came across the word during a class reading of Julius Caesar. It would soon become the name of his newly-formed band later that year, and the South Florida rock trio, Exigent, was born. Jacob’s sister, Jessica Elalouf, is the lead vocalist and bassist, and Angelina Bukata is the drummer.
Each member has different musical influences and backgrounds, all combining to create a unique rock sound. Exigent’s original music combines heavy guitar riffs and powerful drumming with clean vocals, a fusion of each member’s strengths to form an aggressive, solid unit. “Unseen Things”, “It’s Over”, “Empty Hearts”, and “Low” are available on all music streaming platforms, and new music is on the way.
Angel is endorsed by both SJC Drums and Scorpion Percussion. Jessica and Jacob are members of the Brotherhood of the Guitar and endorsed by Ernie Ball.
