Shelton native Suzanne Vick and Seymour resident Richard Demko have been busy in the studio lately putting the finishing touches on their debut album that is scheduled to be released on Tuesday March 7, 2017.
The Duo calls themselves “Demkovic”, and their music is classified as Baroque Operatic Rock. What exactly is Baroque Operatic Rock? Primary songwriter Richard Demko gives us an idea of what to expect.
"Our style is hard to explain, but to give you an example it’s a mix between Evanescence, Tori Amos, Faith no More and Living Color," said Demko. "It also encompasses vocal elements similar to hip-hop on the chorus parts, and powerful, dynamic, flowing, melodies on the verses. You really have to hear it to get the full scope of what this project exactly is.”
The album will be available on HMG Recordings nation wide on virtually every major online retailer, and in select brick and mortar stores. Demko states, “We are extremely excited to be able to have such a huge platform to share our music.”
The duo has been also busy assembling a live band and preparing for their CD release party. The band consists of powerhouse players from all over the state. Joining them on stage will be RVP Studio Guitar instructor and former G-Soul shredder Marc Amendola, Bassist Steve Wovkanech form the band Fast Ricky, Rhythm Guitarist Dale Grenier from Evil Twin, and Seymour Business Owner Matt Christiani on Drums.
“I am very grateful for the opportunity to have such an amazing, talented group of musicians to help deliver our music live," Demko added.
The CD Release Party will be on April 1, 2017 at Café 9- 250 State Street, New Haven CT. Doors open at 9:00, show starts at 9:30. Tickets are $10.00 at the door, or available in advance by logging on to cafenine.com. New Haven artist Nick Depuy and fellow HMG Recording artists Chemical Z will be joining them on the bill.
