Don’t take our word for it – here’s what the critics are saying:
Pop, Rinse, Repeat Music Review Weblog
“..It’s a four track ep that strips away all the over hyped production that we encounter so much with popular music these days and what you’re left with is just pure, real, rock and roll.”
Jeff Odd Nugget – Music and Art Reviews
“…Mellow rock magic with retro tricks up its sleeve – Countless Numbers’ “Twice As Hard” pulls wool without missing a beat. Love like a lost and found finds itself swinging from riffs and licks in this laid-back track.”
Werner Schlosser Carte Blanche Music
“…Countless Numbers harmonize heartbreak over crunchy guitars, melodic keys, pumping bass lines and a driving kick drum.”

Noteworthy Music Reviews: Countless Numbers
Countless Numbers EP ‘Won’ is impressive in countless ways including their intricate rock arrangements that layer acoustic instrumentation with tasteful electronic motifs; lyrics that twist and turn, strong melodic content and hooks; and a sound you just never tire of thanks to Cary’s subtle vocal delivery and the bands overall tasteful musicality.
Countless Numbers – ‘Won’
Hailing from Toronto, Canada, Countless Numbers is an alternative rock band that uses both acoustic and digital instrumentation to create their signature sound.
Countless Numbers – ‘The Rabbit’
Countless Numbers music feels like a friend who has
stopped over with some great tunes – you can’t help but open the door and invite them in to stay for awhile and the more you listen, the more you like them, and before you know they are one of your favorites.
Countless Numbers tell their story through honest songwriting, rolling bass lines, hard truths, and soft angles. The band hails from Toronto, Canada, but are unapologetic about their music. Their influences include Spoon, The War on Drugs, Arcade Fire, and even Elvis (Costello), artists who pull on your heartstrings with the right chord or turn of phrase.
Countless Numbers harmonize heartbreak over crunchy guitars, melodic piano runs, and driving kick drum. Countless Numbers are Cary Parker (vocals, guitar, keys); Lionel Doe (lead guitar, vocals); Tristan Melendreras (bass, vocals); and Devin Jannetta (drums). Cary writes the songs, uncovering relatable experience with real-life wordplay. He and Devin have shared the stage for over 20 years in a variety of indie projects, mainly musical. Lionel Doe (lead guitar, vocals) is Cary’s neighbour, who plays and writes songs for two bands of his own. And Tristan has been with the band from the start and brings his melodic bass lines and endless positivity to the band and the process of building a song.
Their synergy comes out in their recordings, and live performances including past gigs at the Horseshoe Tavern, The Silver Dollar Room, The Opera House, Lee’s Palace, and Junction City Music Hall.
