Conceived in 2007, and continuously evolving ever since, alternative hip-hop band N.U.M.B. Never Underestimate Musical Belief, have worked with the likes of Peter Andre, Arrested Development, Frank Turner, Finlay Quaye, Mica Paris, The Magic Numbers and Stooshe. With a prestigious reputation of providing an adrenaline fuelled, awe-inspiring live performance and an insatiable appetite for success, the urban fusion band pride themselves on their infectious, hard to get out of your head hooks and their more than impressive CV.
With an un-equalled fusion of Rap and expertly crafted songs, they’ve featured in media such as BBC Radio, Sky News, ITV News, HipHop Connection Magazine, and efestivals.co.uk, they’ve performed in front of Prince Harry, got through to the last 10 out of 30,000 bands in The 02 Wireless Competition, performed nearly 500 gigs, been nominated for an Album award alongside Muse, and in 2009 came second in the UK heat of Global Battle of the Bands.
They’ve gained the interest and sponsorship of international guitar manufacturer Faith Guitars, clothing label Fenchurch and urban ethical UK urban outfitters THTC Clothing to name a few.
N.U.M.B.’s classic urban street song ‘Night Time’ was snapped up for Brit comedy film ‘Three and Out’, and in that year while the band walked the red carpet for the film premiere, their video for the track produced over 8,000 hits on Youtube alone. The song was featured on the accompanying CD alongside Blondie and Elvis Costello.
And that’s not all... The band have written and recorded 3 albums and have performed Glastonbury, 02 Wireless Festival, Secret Garden Party, BeachBreak Live, Crealy Rocks, Colston Hall, Respect Festival, The Great Escape Festival, Farmer Phil's Festival, Solfest, Endorset iT Festival, Vibraphonic Festival, Aeon Festival, Vale Earth Fair, as well as many of the smaller boutique festivals.
So what do they sound like? Hook filled songs with intelligent raps, head nodding-fat beats, beautiful soaring vocals, soul twisting bass, with a strong reggae influence, topped with an addictive urban vibe...
