New York, New York – May 29th, 2012

Female rock artist Poc from Mexico City has released her debut album Rise Above, available today at iTunes, Amazon & other digi- stores. The bi-lingual crossover rock artist had her first release this past February, the arena-rock inspired anthem Rock N Roll Baby.

About the recording process, Ron 'Bumblefoot' Thal says ”Poc flew up to to my studio in New Jersey and lived there for two months while we wrote, recorded, and kept a Livestream going to have fans watch, and participate – we had them Skype their backing vocals to us to include in the song Rock N Roll Baby, something I don't think has ever been done on an album. We'd spend hours late at night listening to the past 50 years of rock music, Janis Joplin, Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, getting inspiration. And in the end you can hear that real singer/guitarist team in the songs, that duo of personalities, we captured that."

"I've never experienced so much making an album as I have with Poc. In those two months we had a heat wave, an earthquake, a hurricane, a flood that left 3 feet of water in the studio, and lots of personal challenges to deal with from family tragedies to extortion threats, all this while I was in rehabilitation from a car accident that had left me unable to play and in constant pain. It was one challenge after another. But instead of it stopping us, it added intensity and spirit to the album. That's where the album title came from – every time an obstacle would stand in our way, we'd Rise Above

Songs on Rise Above were co-written and produced by Ron 'Bumblefoot' Thal and feature Guns N' Roses bandmate Frank Ferrer on drums. The album features nine songs in Spanish and three in English.
