Out Of Your Head Records is an artist-run Brooklyn-based label dedicated to releasing creative music and original visual art in limited runs.
Our name has a history to it. OOYH Records grew out of the currently inactive Out Of Your Head Collective, an improvised music community dedicated to presenting one-time-only ensembles in improvised performances, originally in Baltimore, MD and later in Brooklyn, NY. While the label has a different concept, it certainly continues in the spirit of the collective, and in due time you will see releases from more members of those communities.
