An outfit convened by by ex-PROPHET, DANGER DANGER, BONE MACHINE and MELODICA man Ted Poley in union with Austrian guitarist and MELODICA colleague Gerhard Pichler. The duo debuted the 'Big' album live at the Z Rock festival in the UK during October of 2002. Ted Poley and Gerhard Pichler's new album is essentially the third Melodica album.
The singer Ted Poley (Danger Danger) has released the album "Greatest Hits Volume 2" and is the sequel to 2009's "Greatestits Vol. 1". GREATEST HITS Volume 2 features re-masters of some of Ted's favorite songs that didnt make it onto the now almost sold out Vol. 1 cd set- PLUS 4 new tracks not available on any of Ted's CD's until now which includes the single BREATHE (awesome video now playing on youtube) as well as a RARE track by ERIC CARR of KISS with Ted on lead vocals taken from a lost, then found demo cassette tape, vocals added later, this exclusive version is remastered!
"Greatestits Vol. 1" - Special Collectors Limited Edition is an awesome collection (Vol. 1 is actually a 2 CD set) that includes 33 songs taken from all of Ted's work outside of Danger Danger. It includes re-masters of some of Ted's most popular songs from his 2 recent Solo CD's, Bonemachine, Melodica, Prophet, and songs done with other artists such as JK Northrup, Jack Frost, Jun Senoue, Vic Rivera, and rare unreleased stuff like original song demos, hard to find rare tracks including the impossible to find Xmas Song, the Japan exclusive Takoyaki Rock, and NEW STUFF too.
"Smile" is the second studio album by "Danger Danger" front-man Ted Poley, originally released in 2007. In contrast to its predecessor, "Smile" as a release falls clearly in the melodic rock/AOR genre perhaps partly influenced by the change in record label (Poley has been signed to "Frontiers" records since "Smile"). The melodies and vocal hooks are plentiful and the music is how melodic rock should be.
From start to finish, "Collateral Damage" is an absolute triumph and Ted's vocals never sounded better. It's so refreshing to actually see an artist mature over the years and this is very true of Ted Poley. From his glory days back in DANGER DANGER till the more intricate, well written and brilliantly arranged music he is putting out today, Poley has definitely come a long way. Joined by long-time friend and fellow DANGER DANGER band mate Andy Timmons on guitar for this one. "Collateral Damage" is Ted Poley and AOR at its best!
