About Gearhead Productions: Gearhead® started as a magazine in 1993, the brainchild of former owner Mike LaVella. The magazine was inspired by the culture around hot rods, custom cars and rock n’ roll. In 2000, the brand expanded to include the record label when Rev. Michelle Haunold came on board as co-owner. Having met when both were writers for the critically acclaimed punk magazine Maximum Rock ‘n’ Roll, the two released over sixty records and expanded the line of clothing and accessories and the continuation of the magazine. In 2013 Haunold took sole ownership of the company. In 2016 longtime friend and former music industry executive Aime Elkins-McCrory joined up with Haunold and the Gearhead Brand to further expansion. Today the Gearhead® brand combines mix of high octane punk ‘n’ roll, pop culture and the grease of American car culture all rolled into a unique brand of clothing, music and media.
