On my own or in a pair, I might rest quietly at your side.

In greater numbers we may hang and sing about your adventures.

More again and we might sing to a crowd, or perhapse help you give answer.

What am I?

  • $\begingroup$ @wrangler I could be wrong but I don't think there'll be any answers that will fit as well as the one I'm after. $\endgroup$ – Brent Hackers Jun 12 '16 at 6:40
  • $\begingroup$ @BrentHackers Is 'perhapse' a typo? Sorry to be pedantic :P $\endgroup$ – Inazuma Jun 12 '16 at 6:53

Is it:

Keys?

On my own or in a pair, I might rest quietly at your side.

One or two keys might not jangle

In greater numbers we may hang and sing about your adventures.

When you have a number of keys, it tells of all the doors you can open

Keys on a piano would sing to a crowd at a performance. Answer keys would give you an answer to a test, etc.

OP Answer

On my own or in a pair, I might rest quietly at your side.

One or two keys may sit quietly in your pocket.

In greater numbers we may hang and sing about your adventures.

A large number of keys would instead be worn on the belt where they will jingle as you walk.

More again and we might sing to a crowd, or perhapse help you give answer.

Keys on a piano. Keys on a computer keyboard. :)

May be:

A secret

On my own or in a pair, I might rest quietly at your side.

Can be a single or many secrets of a person. Until known they rest quietly on persons mind.

In greater numbers we may hang and sing about your adventures.

Every secret has an adventure or story attached with it.

More again and we might sing to a crowd, or perhapse help you give answer.

If any of them is out they are transmitted to whole crowd.
