Getting To Know... The Numb Project

After recently releasing his highly-praised studio album 'Transmissions From A Troubled Radio', Portland-based producer The Numb Project now looks to highlight its emotive closing track 'Sad Eyes'.

Capturing more of that warm and invigorating aesthetic he has been building since he first emerged, 'Sad Eyes' makes for an incredibly rich and moving listen. With its spellbinding production and lofty aesthetics layered throughout, he continues to shine as one of the more immersive names doing the rounds right now.

So we caught up with him to find out more about his origins and what has been inspiring him most lately.


What kind of music did you love when you were younger?

80’s pop metal was my jam. I just retrieved a box full of Metal Edge magazines from my parents house and have been paging through them. They’re missing a lot of the pinup photos though because they were plastered all over my wall. Poison, Bon Jovi, White Lion, right on down the line to the obscure bands that were getting major label deals. I love that music.

What was the first album you remember owning?

I did the old Columbia House 4 CDs for a cent, or whatever it was. They all came at one time. Appetite for Destruction, Girls, Girls, Girls, The Joshua Tree, and I cant recall the fourth one!

What is the one song you wished you could have written yourself?

Be My Baby, the greatest pop song ever written.

Do you have any habits or rituals you go through when trying to write new music?

I brew some coffee and plop myself down in front of the laptop and get to work!

Who are your favourite artists you have found yourself listening to at the moment?

Fredric Robinson’s album “Live Signals”, Devonwho, and a whole lot of Bon Jovi.

If you could open a show for anyone in the world, who would it be?

DJ Krush

What do you find is the most rewarding part about being a musician?

Hearing the finished work. Its amazing to create something that didn’t exist before. The hard work is totally worth it.

And what is the most frustrating part?

When a piece of music is new, good and exciting and I can’t figure out how to move the sketch forward into a song. That, or just getting ears on your music is so hard. There is such an overwhelming amount of music in the world with streaming access that its hard to get eyes on your music.

And what is the best piece of advice you have received as a musician?

Make music everyday. If you miss a day, don’t miss two.
