Joe Grushecky

    “Everything’s Going to Work Out Right”


    Joe Grushecky’s music has stood the test of time. For 30 years publications such as Billboard, Rolling Stone, Village Voice, No Depression, and countless others have hailed him as one of rock and roll’s most talented singer-songwriters.

    In 1979 Rolling Stone magazine crowned his band’s, the Iron City Houserockers, first album Love’s So Tough the “debut record of the year.” Acclaimed rock writer Jimmy Guterman, named their second album, Have a Good Time (But Get Out Alive) as one of the 100 Best Rock & Roll Records of all time. Legendary guitarist and Rock Hall of Famer Steve Cropper produced Blood on the Bricks. Rock superstar and Hall of Famer, Bruce Springsteen, produced American Babylon in 1995 and continues to perform with the band and write with Joe, including the Grammy winning “Code of Silence.”

    We’re Not Dead Yet, Live in Pittsburgh, Joe’s 14th LP, carries on his tradition of delivering honest and passionate music. Blurt Magazine said about the live performance: “Grushecky and the Houserockers performed like they thought they were damn rock stars and, on that night, they were indeed the greatest rock ‘n’ roll outfit on the planet.”
