Formed in early 2006, the band frequently played Southern Ontario before releasing their independent EP On Being And The Affect later that year. Produced by Brian Moncarz (Moneen, Pilot Speed, Circa Survive), and mastered by acclaimed mastering engineer Greg Calbi at Stirling Sound, the EP gained Recovery Child notoriety due to its success on US and Canadian CMJ college radio. This gave the band the opportunity to compete for 97.7 HTZ-FM's acclaimed Rocksearch contest, with past winner like Finger Eleven and The Trews. The band ended up winning the Rocksearch contest, which got their first single "Trigger Me" into rotation 97.7 HTZ-FM and other Astral Media radio stations, as well as 102.1 The Edge.
Recovery Child continued to support the record with regional tours while playing festivals like North By Northeast, and notable shows for the Canadian Armed Forces. The band was also featured on CIRAA's audio documentary The New Indie, a guide to the Canadian music industry which also featured singer/songwriter Ron Sexsmith and CBC personality Jian Ghomeshi.
The band went on to dedicate time to writing and recording their follow up album to On Being And The Affect. In the summer of 2010, during the recording, Recovery Child's lead singer Ryan McCambridge organized Spill: Songs For Oil Spill Relief, a music compilation to raise money for Oceana and the Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill. The compilation featured a number of other Canadian artists such as Dragonette, The Junction, Dinosaur Bones, Lindi Ortega, Spirits, among others. Toro Magazine featured an article praising the compilation.
The band has since set out to play shows across North America, gaining coverage by regarded magazines like Truth Explosion. Recovery Child's still untitled new album is due out in 2011.
