Colour By Numbers is a quartet of indie rockers delivering catchy hooks and dancey beats layered with rich harmonies. Their music is a one-two punch of raw emotion combining elements of nineties rock, early funk and a hint of modern folk. The band’s influences include the Arkells, Motown and even some laid back, folky Neil Young.
Jared Adams and Alex Kozub share lead vocal with Mike McDermid on drums while multi-instrumentalist Jesse Millar will jump from guitar to synth to percussion all in one song. Recently, they put out a punchy new single, “The Great Gatsby", along with their first music video. The group is currently working on writing and demoing songs for a full length album.
Alex and Jared began writing music together in the summer of 2010, hammering out the songs that would make their way onto their debut EP, released in the spring of 2014. University of Winnipeg publication, The Uniter reviewed the EP saying, “Colour By Numbers has a gift for making harmony the focal point of every song, […] tying this eclectic rootsy indie pop EP together.”
This group of talented and dedicated musicians has crafted a unique sound that is bound to find the groove in everyone.
