OOYH Untamed is the digital-only DIY side of Out Of Your Head Records. The focus of Untamed is to release high quality performances with a quicker turnaround than a traditional studio album. They may be a live performance, a home studio recording, or an unearthed gem that never had the proper release outlet. That being said the performances are always first rate, and this is music that we strongly believe should be out in the world.

In the time of COVID-19 all proceeds from Untamed album sales are given directly to the artists. We want to say a huge thank you to TJ Huff (huffart.com) for generously donating original art, time, and talents to the design of these albums. Extra thanks to Nathaniel Morgan for the generous donation of his mixing and mastering services for this album.

For every sale of this album OOYH Records will donate an additional $1 to Black Lives Matter, an organization chosen by Michael Formanek.
