Story Tellers. Honest song-writing, rolling basslines, hard truths, and soft angles.
Countless Numbers are Cary Parker (vocals, guitar, keys); Lionel Doe (guitar, vocals); Tristan Melendreras (bass, vocals, rattlesnake); and Devin Jannetta (drums).
Our latest EP – Ai Yai Yai – is our most personal to date. The songs just sound like us – who we are, how we play live, who we’ve become as a band – and touch on challenges we face every day, with themes of alienation in a connected world (Phone Call); surrender (Waiting Room); letting go of holding on (Little Lever); and the inertia of empty promises (Tellers). Set to some sweet sweet rock and roll. We love how it sounds and are excited to share it.
Every and all thanks go to our partners in production. Adam Drury (SodiPop Studio) recorded all bass, drums, keys, some backups and a rattlesnake, and with Lionel Doe, the guitars. Adam is a neighbour and a friend, and the most positive person you’d hope to be around while recording. Countless Numbers thank him and his family for letting us invade his space.
We were lucky to work with John Dinsmore again (Lincoln County Social Club), who recorded our vocals and backups and some percussion, and also handled mixing duties for Ai Yai Yai. He’s mixed all of our music and we keep coming back because he’s able to capture our sound as we sound and because he’s just a really good dude.
Phil Demetro was the mastering engineer (Lacquer Channel), a true master in his craft. He lets a song breathe, expand, settle, shine. Like seeing all the stars in the night sky for the first time.
Album artwork was provided by Canadian artist Tim Gorewich who is a genius in everything he does.
Videos for Phone Call and Tellers were created by Lionel Doe; and for Little Lever, Tessa Juyun Kim.n!
