In 2003 longtime friends Chris Mills and Cris Womack shared an apartment in Lewisville TX. Like so many 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 thats 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 more recently their first LP Studio B.
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 and their signing with Blue Pie Records Eleven Dollars is geared toward becoming the next big music attraction.
