Welcome: Recent History

Oak Honest Records is proud to present to you, the newest members of our roster: Recent History! The five headed rock and roll outfit from Northampton have been on our radar since late 2021, when they played their first show at The O’s in Sunderland. The music scene in western Mass. is teeming with talented bands, so it’s no surprise that a crew of this caliber would form there.

After moving to western Mass. from the Boston area, Glen Fant started the band with Ryan Guillen, Ryan Anderson and Steve Tremblay. The band was formed for one purpose; to play fun rock music over dance beats with no apologies for big riffs and guitar solos. Add synth player Rocco Desgres to the mix and you have an outfit that not only achieves this goal, but throws down with the best of them.

Recent History maintains a connection to the past, with their vision focused on the future. Elements of blues, funk, and soul are combined with 80’s synth pop, 90’s alt-rock, and dance-punk of the 2000’s. The end result is a massive sound that isn’t tethered to any specific time period. This is pure rock for now people. So many rock bands are stiff, serious, and borderline stale; where’s the energy, where’s the fun? Turns out it’s in Recent History!

Please join us in welcoming RH by giving them a proper listen! You can find their music on Spotify, Bandcamp, and Youtube.
