From Bumbles press release:

Mexican rock singer Poc releases debut single "Rock N Roll Baby" produced by Guns N' Roses guitarist Ron 'Bumblefoot' Thal

New York, New York – Feb 14, 2012

Poc's story begins as a young ballet dancer in Mexico City, on the morning of her audition to enter professional dance school. On her way to the performance she had an accident and broke her ankle, a pivotal moment that shifted her future toward her other passion, music. Poc started to sing, write songs, play piano and guitar, started recording demos and performing around Mexico City. Now in her early 20's her musical career is taking off – teaming up with Guns N' Roses guitarist Ron 'Bumblefoot' Thal and opening shows for Guns N' Roses in Mexico (October 2011), Poc is ready to release her debut album, "Rise Above", starting with the arena-rock inspired anthem Rock N Roll Baby.

About the recording process, Ron 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.

Drums were performed by Guns N' Roses drummer Frank Ferrer. The full album will be available in English and in Spanish.
