Recess came to be in early 2008. They started off, with Vincent (the band’s lead vocalist) being only 8 years old, as a bunch of kids performing cover songs in the basement of a small 3 bedroom house on Boundary Lane in Parma, Ohio. As they improved and grew musically, performing at numerous venues and festivals across the States, Recess began to create and write their own music. Through many songs and peculiar situations / events, the band finally had created 5 songs in which they felt really reflected them and their sound. These 5 songs can be found on Recess’s first EP intentionally named "Boundary Lane".
Recess completed their second EP, "From Dust to Gold", and released their premiere music video with director Brad Golowin for the EP’s first single called "Leaving Home" on 7/26/18 which was immediately featured on the premiere music blog for emerging artists Kings of A&R.
During the pandemic, Recess performed virtually at the Canadian Music Fest and Finsperry Music Fest in the UK. In 2021, Recess was a finalist in Goodyear's Rock Hall Garage to Glory contest which is a great prerequisite to their soon to be released 3rd EP.
From performing at iconic venues such as the Viper Room, the House of Blues, and Black River Landing, to their television appearances on both New York City’s “Wonderama” and Topgolf’s “Who Will Rock You?”, Recess continues to enrapture audiences and bombard the music industry with their unique original music and lively stage presence.
