The names Poley / Rivera should be very familiar to all. This special pairing of two very talented guys ensures the delivery of some classic melodic rock moments. The ‘Poley’ of course belongs to Ted Poley (vocalist for Danger Danger) and ‘Rivera’ belongs to Vic Rivera (guitarist for Adriangale/Crunch).
The duo teamed up in late 2005 for the album Collateral Damage which was released as a Ted Poley solo record by Kivel Records in 2006.
Now the guys finally get to do it again, under the Poley/Rivera moniker for the first time since previewing one of the demos from this album on the MelodicRock Volume 2 sampler in late 2006. The album is named after that very track. Only Human is everything one expects from a Ted Poley release, with the added “crunch” of Vic Rivera, showcasing an extra special set of songs.
Says Ted Poley: “I am very excited and honored that Poley/Rivera has been chosen as one of the initial signings to Angelmilk! Vic and I are very proud of the new CD and happy that Andy and Andrew and their team will be handling it! I wish Angelmilk much success with all of its new signings and look forward to being part of a new adventure in melodic rock!”
Vic Rivera joins in: “Ted and I are absolutely thrilled to be working with Messrs. McNeice and Bramhall and Angelmilk Records for the release of this CD. We’re very proud of the work we’ve done on this project and are honored that the classy label in Angelmilk has endeavored to bring this great bunch of songs to the melodic rock fans. It was a labor of love every step of the way, and to finally see it fully realized is a dream come true for us. Thanks, Andrew, Andy and Angelmilk! And a big thanks to all of our fans who make this possible!”
