Hard rock band Circle 7 was formed by high school friends Ryan Holliday and Daniel Cease, along with Cease’s cousin Ryan Welcher. Guitarist Isaac Rauscher was a later recruit, followed two years later by singer Simon Alcantara, who moved to San Diego from Florida in order to join the band.
Their full-length In Between was released in June 2012.
