Hailing from picturesque North-Devon town of Barnstaple, ELEVEN grew from the jamming of brothers Steve and Chris Tanton (Drums and Guitar respectively).
When Steve left for College in London, the end of the band looked nigh. But he returned with a burning desire to complete the band that the brothers had started. After some initial line-up changes, ELEVEN started 2006 as they mean to go on with the charismatic Ryan Butler (Lead Vocals and Guitar) fronting the band and the multitalented Tom Kyle on Bass.
All aged between 18 and 20, ELEVEN have already got an enormous following in the West country following some packed out gigs and the support of local Radio. In 2005 they played the Gold Coast Oceanfest in front of a crowd of 3,000 and went on to win the Big Night Out competition. The band have gone on to play storming gigs in London at the Metro, Garage, Telegraph and Half Moon. There has been massive airplay from Pulse Rated FM and glowing reviews from around the country.
So far ELEVEN have been likened to Red Hot Chili Peppers, Puddle Of Mudd, The Police, Maroon 5, Incubus, Pearl Jam, Foo Fighters, Mighty Mighty Bosstones, The Beach Boys and Sublime. The three part harmonies and excellent musicianship give them an unmistakable sound and the riffs will stick in your head like songs you’ve always known.
2006 holds the prospect of ELEVEN’s first UK tour, national radio airplay and some great after show parties!
