Ray Donovan’s Dash “Diz” Mihok and his band, Diz and The Fam, have released their new single “Fire” ft. Desi Valentine along with a powerful and thought-provoking video. The hopeful, urgent song speaks to the difficult and divided times that we are in as a nation through an uplifting melody, passionate lyrics, a booming soulful chorus and a cinematic video, directed by Dash, that places a focus on our children as the future. Dash felt compelled to put pen to paper after he was deeply disturbed when neo-Nazis descended upon Charlottesville in what was described as one of the largest white supremacist events in recent U.S. history.

“To me, at this moment in our blazingly fast created history, fire has more connotations than ever. A forest fire acting in primitive fashion only knows that it’s desperate for air and room to expand. Fire is the motivation within us all to achieve the greatest version of ourselves and it’s the ability to tear down everything we have built in minutes. It’s the heat that warms us yet burns us when we get too close. Itʼs the torch that some riot with but the symbol that lights our worldly connection at the Olympics. Ultimately, I believe it’s the discovery and rediscovery in each of us over the course of our lives. I believe this video shows relativity, and the innocence and beautiful vulnerability we all share as humans on this earth regardless of color, gender, religion, sexuality, nationality. There is a oneness to the fire in all of us – whether we see or feel it as fear or as power,” says Dash.
Dash Mihok – artist, rapper, award-winning actor (he currently stars as Bunchy on Showtime’s Ray Donovan), producer, multi-instrumentalist and philanthropist – fell in love with music at 8 years old when he was gifted a drum set from his uncle. As he learned to play, it helped to calm his Tourette Syndrome. Eventually discovering hip-hop, Dash began to front Diz and the Fam which has cultivated a sound powered by organic beat craft, live instrumentation and elastic rhyme schemes that will make you move and think, confronting socio-political issues head on.
