Who Ya Dyin’ For is the first track of many from Los Angeles singer-songwriter, Joe Grah. Written and recorded during a long and arduous recovery following an October 2018 near-death head-on Motorcycle crash. The devastating vehicle impact left Joe with a shattered left clavicle, a crushed left hand, and left foot, multiple fractured ribs, a broken right thumb, internal bleeding, and an anomaly on his left lung. Confined to his Laurel Canyon home while recovering from various surgeries, Grah set out to escape the pain, depression, isolation and canceled JIBE tours by recording the entire process. The resulting collection of genre-defying songs is a flag-waving ode to the quest for redemption and the undying ability to overcome against all the odds.
Mixed by Evan Rodinache (Lacy Sturm/Flyleaf, Escape The Fate, Powerman 5000), and mastered by Grammy Award Winning Engineer, Bill Hare, Who Ya Dyin’ For questions the very core of mortality. The video is filmed on location overlooking a massive dry lake in Death Valley, California by Emmy winning director, Matthew JC and 1307 Productions. The final scenes, shot around a blazing fire burning atop a windswept mountain, proved to be painfully cinematic. The single cover artwork is actually a still frame taken from the footage of Joe literally catching on fire.
Joe Grah is best known for being the lead singer of the Dallas based Alt-rock juggernaut, JIBE (Billboard singles, Release & Yesterday’s Gone). Other mentionable bands are Island Def-jam recording artist, LOSER also featuring guitar virtuoso, John 5 (Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson), and Chicago’s South Of Earth with Geno Lenardo (Filter). His songs have been heard worldwide in regular rotation on radio, film & television.
