HI-DESERT SUITE

MEET THE PROFESSOR

WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF PROFESSOR YARNHEAD
"A beautiful blend of images - Embark on a spectacular journey through
a unique celebration..."

Over twenty years ago my friend Brian had a dream in which there was a character named Yarn Head. When he told me about his dream I told him that years from now, when I was around 50 I’d have a band and I’d call myself Professor Yarnhead.

I guess that time has come!

Off and on for over thirty years I’ve played in bands and worked on various music projects, from Train of Thought, Zombie Birdhouse and Eccentric Activities in the 1980’s to UFOverdriver for the last six years.

Now I’m living and recording in the hi-desert in Southern California, near Joshua Tree in Pioneertown.

I record while staring out at giant granite boulders and Joshua Trees, in a jackrabbit homestead cabin on 10 acres of quietness.

My influences include Leonard Cohen, Robbie Robertson, Brian Eno, Massive Attack, Tricky, Leslie Winer, Tom Waits and Laurie Anderson.
