HERE (feat. Derek Sherinian

Montreal Progressive Rock/ Alt-Rock artist Polychuck releases his latest single ‘HERO’ featuring legendary Keyboardist Derek Sherinian (Dream Theater, Sons of Apollo, Alice Cooper). Coming off the back of his widely acclaimed EP ‘Polychuck Part II: Shadows Remain’, Polychuck looks to cement his place within the Rock scene further with his latest release.

 

‘HERO’ is about the events currently going on in Ukraine, Polychuck being of Ukrainian descent connected to the conflict on a personal level, he explains “I take to heart what is happening. 'HERO' is a cry for peace as if the music could help us get some relief from the pain caused by war and political conflict.”

 

‘HERO’ showcases Polychuck’s dynamic range of sound as he proves once more his versatility with a guitar. With its intricate drum patterns blending with heavy-hitting riffs, soaring guitar solos and Sherinian’s legendary keyboard lines that frame Polychuck’s vocals perfectly creating a well-rounded track that has everything you’d want from a ProgRock single.

Few modern day popular music artists are as all-genre encompassing as Polychuck. 

 

Already a guitar virtuoso by the age of only 13, Montreal artist Polychuck is now an innovative and ever-maturing singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer and high profile guitar coach Polychuck keeps his roots firmly planted in his hometown's rock and metal scenes while possessing a musical curiosity to embrace a wide variety of genres ranging from progressive metal to electro-pop, with ventures in alternative indie rock and urban trap beats. 

 

Now going back to his roots with brand new single 'HERO' Featuring Derek Sherinian (Dream Theater, Sons of Apollo) Polychuck aims to take his music to a whole new level and leave an undeniable, lasting legacy of his own in the realm of progressive & alternative rock.

 

Polychuck's fascinating musical and personal journey is chronicled in singles such as 'Nailed to the X', a celebration of the artist's straight edge lifestyle hailed by numerous blogs, including B-Sides and Badlands.

 

The multi-talented Polychuck played, produced, recorded and mastered everything that you hear on the EP, and has amassed an impressive arsenal of instruments that he utilized – a Suhr Modern (desert gradient finish) on all tracks (solos), Guerilla 7 string hand built in Canada (dark cyan finish) on 'In the Dark,' or his LTD EC-1000 (white) on all tracks except 'In the Dark.' 

 

Additionally, Polychuck has been training in MMA and Muay Thai for 4 years. He has never competed in major pro level fights, but he does participate in some underground (so-called "smokers") fights. These fights are not officially legalized, but rather in a grey zone. Polychuck also teaches guitar professionally, including to some established players in established bands. 

 

With most modern artists sounding quite one-dimensional, predictable, and same-sounding as their competition, the hard-to-pin-down Polychuck is a most welcome arrival on the music scene, as heard throughout his music.
