Eleven Dollars releases their new hit single “Lighter Shade of Gray”.
It’s not too often you come across a band that you can’t stop listening to. For a while now you’ve been searching for new music to listen to, your iPod seems to be a repetition of old music that you’ve had on there for months. Your music status needs an upgrade. Welcome Eleven Dollars, a young band from Texas. They’ve had previous releases with ‘I’m Not Depressed’ and ‘Laurensong’. They have now released their new single ‘Lighter Shade of Gray’ from their LP Studio B.
Their sound is underground pop/indie-rock, and they know how to write a song. What strikes me most when listening to their music is their originality for storytelling, which you don’t hear much in mainstream music these days, it’s refreshing to hear. Lighter Shade of Grey displays a deeper element to the LP. It’s a much slower, softer track but still resembles an upbeat tone that is heard throughout the rest Studio B.
Eleven Dollars are a band that have true musicality, and will go far. Whether they end up playing at Madison Square Garden or a small folk pub they still will leave you wanting more.

ABOUT ELEVEN DOLLARS:
2003, longtime friends Chris Mills and Cris Womack shared an apartment in Lewisville, TX. Like so many In other musicians, the two starting playing and writing songs for fun. Their creativity turned into serious business as they began playing venues in the Denton area.
Trying to think of a band name, Mills and Womack ended up choosing Eleven Dollars, "since that's all we thought we would make." Of course, they underestimated themselves and, in 2005, they picked up the lead guitar skills of Brandon Deem and bass player, Doug Benscoter. The four-piece band played venues and festivals for another two years before bringing in the final piece to the puzzle: musician, Steve Hughes. With the newly crafted band finally in place, Eleven Dollars has recorded a popular EP, "Missing Pieces," and is currently working on their first LP, "Studio B," projected for a late summer 2010 release. In addition to their albums, the music of Eleven Dollars has been featured in the independent films, "After School Special" ("Laurensong") and "In Eternity" ("You," "Goodnight and Goodbye"). With multiple tours lined up for the summer and the talents of multiple booking agents, Eleven Dollars is geared toward becoming the next big music attraction.
