HEAD / Bio

Head is a power trio from Grand Rapids, MI. Their practical approach to songwriting has yielded a sound that can't be categorized or commodified. With influences ranging from The Melvins to Bowie to Face to Face, this band is a melting pot of aesthetics. Recently reunited after a 8 year hiatus, they released their 3rd debut "Strike of The Golden Eagle" in May of 2011.
Frontman Benjamin Hunter, is a Professor at Grand Valley State University. There he teaches Communication Design and Media Literacy. He is also the Culture Editor and Director of Promotions of Recoil Magazine, West Michigan's premier alt monthly.
Mike Luxford (co-founder) has played the drums in several Michigan punk and post rock bands including The Everdead and 123. His pragmatic approach to the drums and his syncopated counter-rhythms create the toe tapping snap typical in Head's arrangements. He has two beautiful daughters and a lovely wife. He built a house for them with his bare hands.
Jobot (co-founder) is a producer, musician, husband and father of three. He has been a key asset to the West Michigan music scene for two decades performing in a variety of groups. In the early 90's his group Mesh shared the stage with the likes of Jane's Addiction, Ministry and King Missile.
Head has shared the stage with ATDI, Bear vs. Shark, Shiner, Helmet and GZA to name a few. They begin their spring 2011 tour in Seattle on May 1st with Portland's Peninsulas
