Vocalist and Shelton native Suzanne Vick, and writer/producer Richard Demko, a Seymour resident formerly of Monroe, have scored a record deal with West Haven Indie label HMG Recordings. The duo call themselves "DEMKOVIC" and their debut album, entitled "Breathe," is scheduled to be released in the fall of 2016.
Vick and Demko began working together in 2007 when they played in the local funk/jam band, Electric Mayhem. The two eventually left the group due to what Demko describes as "life," but said he always knew that he would eventually find himself working with Vick again. After a few years of musical hiatus, Demko started writing again and could think of no one other than Vick to bring his latest batch of songs to life. When asked to describe DEMKOVIC’S musical style Demko said it is "very deep, emotional, operatic rock with elements of heavy guitars, big drums, deep bass, and flowing, dynamic, layered vocals.”
