Poc is an edgy rock singer
hailing from Mexico with an amazing voice and a unique story.
Her tale begins as a young ballet
dancer in Mexico City on the morning of her audition into professional dance
school. On her way to the performance she had an accident and broke her ankle in
a literal twist of fate. This moment served as an epiphany and shifted her
passion to what inspired her to dance in the first place - music. Poc started
focusing on singing, writing songs, as well as playing piano and guitar in her
late teenage years. As time went on she started recording demos and performing
at venues around Mexico City, which would open up numerous doors in the
entertainment world, including a recurring acting role on the TV show "Roomies."
With musical inspirations from the likes of Janis Joplin, ACDC and Lenny Kravitz,
Poc, who is now in her early 20's, can finally say that her career is taking
off. She has teamed up with
Guns N' Roses guitarist
Ron 'Bumblefoot' Thal and
opened for the legendary rock band on their Mexico tour dates (Oct 2011). The two would
lock themselves in the studio for months to record Poc's debut album, Rise
Above. "An album made from chasing dreams and overcoming obstacles," this is
what the singer wants people to hear and feel when listening.
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.
