Natasha Shneider

Natasha Shneider’s voice is sultry and hypnotic and her keyboard mastery is represented in her electric piano, organ and Moog bass playing. Alain Johannes’ guitar playing is emotive and textural with a virtuoso’s flair for subtlety. His voice adds a powerful complement to Natasha’s and this duality of expression gives the songs a timeless quality. Jack Irons is the rhythmic heart of Eleven. His drumming is profound and always rooted in a complete understanding of the pulse that gives music the power to communicate. On “Howling Book” the band is at the height of its creative powers. From the emotional balladry of “Kill Me No More”, “Howling Book” and “Simple Kiss” to the full-tilt rock of “Show Me Something” and “All My Friends” and the groove-heavy atmosphere of “You’re My Diamond” and “Now Is The Word”, Eleven have captured the essence of their vision: a unique synthesis of all styles and periods of music focused and forced onto a rock aesthetic.
