Eleventyseven is an electronically propelled alt pop explosion hailing straight out of the Carolinas. The group is known for their marriage of EDM, Pop and Punk influences as well as their fans base who seem to hold an incurable obsession with unicorns. Releasing their first label debut in 2005, the group quickly gained notoriety on the various Sony/BMG imprints they inhabited. Their second album, Galactic Conquest, cemented them as a staple of pop rock in Asia resulting in chart success and extensive touring in Japan. Their signature brand of "neon-punk" garnered them comparisons to Motion City Soundtrack, The Faint, and Cobra Starship. After a slew of other releases they officially disbanded in 2014, only to re-emerge with their own label, podcast and comeback album titled Rad Science. In 2012 they released their most popular album to date, Attack of The Mountain Medley. The release was an attempt by the band to channel the country and folk music they grew up with, and take a break from the loud electronics and theatrics of their previous releases. The album now sits at over 6 million streams, and contains the group's most popular track, "Appalachian Wine". Now almost 10 years later, Eleventy is reviving the Mountain Medley series with a new EP titled Revenge of the Mountain Medley. A temporary departure from the synth-heavy dance tracks that make up most of their discography, the band is once again taking a detox from their synthetic glitz and revisiting stories and folk narratives from their life in the south.

Van Oss was born and raised in Green Bay, Wisconsin where she was classically trained in piano, guitar, and drums, before making her way outside Boston to finish high school at Walnut Hill School for the Arts, concentrating on pursuing her ballet career. Van Oss found her way in Raleigh following graduation to join the Carolina Ballet, where she was promoted to soloist in 2021. She started her music career over quarantine in 2020 by recording with her brother Robby Van Oss of the Phony Santas in their childhood basement. Since then she has released 4 singles, a music video using dancers from the Carolina Ballet, and has played throughout Raleigh, her most recent show being on the stage of The PourHouse Record and Music Shop.
