Fiercely independent, it was absolutely no surprise to anyone when Jo created Indoor Recess in 2003 – a place where her energy, drive and ambition could flourish, unencumbered.

Amanda’s lifelong love of music – nurtured from a young age by a guitar-playing dad and drummer mother – led her to the Public Relations program at Durham College, where she focused much of her studies on the music biz. An internship with MapleMusic Recordings (now Cadence Music Group) helped pave the way to her career with Indoor Recess in 2010. Over the years, she has had the privilege of working with countless musicians and events, delighting in the opportunity to discover new artists and watch them grow and bask in their successes.
Management & Social Media
With small town Ontario work ethic and a Radio & Television Arts degree from Ryerson University, Aven entered the music industry in 2013 and hasn’t looked back since. Today, she has considerable experience in social media strategy and digital marketing that ranges from international album campaigns to on-tour coordination for arena tours. As an artist manager, Aven has proven her commitment to the artistic vision while encouraging innovation and growth.

Holding a Bachelor of Journalism degree from Ryerson University, Ola applies her communication skills, zeal for culture, and experience as a journalist and project manager to Indoor Recess.
Music has always been an integral part of Taffin's life starting from a early childhood when she rode on her parents shoulders at music festivals and concerts, like Ottawa's annual Bluesfest. After attending Carleton University and completing a degree in Communications and Media Studies, she travelled to South Korea for a year to teach English. Upon her return she enrolled in Humber College's post graduate Public Relations program and entered the world of music and entertainment public relations with an internship at Strut Entertainment. This experience affirmed her love for the music and entertainment scene and led her to working with Indoor Recess. Taffin enjoys the endless opportunities the public relations field has to offer and applies everything she learns into her work at Indoor Recess.
