Exit Stencil Recordings is an American independent record label based in Brooklyn. The label was founded by Brandon Stevens in 2002 [1] in Cleveland, Ohio. Ryan Weitzel joined in 2004 with Paul Murphy following shortly afterward to form the core of the label. The label is named after a play on the word existential. During the time in Cleveland, Ryan and Brandon helped operated a short lived multipurpose warehouse space called Parish Hall and the Miller Weitzel Gallery which both served as the labels home base. The spaces were centered on creative endeavors with a DIY ethic.[2]

Although Exit Stencil Recordings moved their offices to Brooklyn in 2010, the label continues to be the flagship label of Cleveland indie music. The label operated a digital and analog recording studio in the Waterloo Arts District of Cleveland's Collinwood neighborhood from 2008 - 2010. The eclectic sounds of Exit Stencil Recordings disparate member bands is simply explained by the owners' personal tastes, but the bands are each recognized for doing something creative in their respective genres.[3]
