NMBR11 (pronounced Number-Eleven) is a national act formed by artists Bernard Bulhack and Yeshiva Lex. The band was born on May 11th 2012 after Bernard and Yeshiva met while joining a blues project. Their interest in other genres drove them to branch off to create a duo and eventually full band as well.
Born and raised in South America (Chile and Venezuela), coming to the US over a decade ago, and being exposed to many cultures resulted in the rich sound they now deliver in their music. Bernard and Yeshiva (Bernard - FIU & FAU alumni & Yeshiva - Berklee alumni) join forces to create songs that reflect the wide variety of influences they’ve picked up along the road, which range from Americana, Blues, Roots, Folk, Jazz, Latin, and Rock. Their hearts, however, are ever so taken by Americana music, which is the style they drift towards when it comes to writing.
Their debut full-length album “Follow The Song,” is an independent effort released by NMBR11 Music, Inc. on February 11th 2015. Recorded in Muscle Shoals, Alabama at the renowned Wishbone Studios, and produced by Billy Lawson and NMBR11, the album includes contributions from several esteemed legendary musicians including Will McFarlane, Bob Wray, Harvey L. Thompson, Randy Hartsfield, Marty Lewis and Johnny Walker. Not to mention Grammy nominated engineer Daniel Beard who was part of the project, as well as Grant Walden who acted as Daniel's right hand during recording, and DJCharlie Jo was the perfect studio assistant who made sure everything was ready and seamless behind the scenes. Besides writing all the songs in the album, Yeshiva & Bernard poured their hearts and souls in the production of this project, contributing as recording and editing engineers, arrangers, and performers adding vocals, guitars, and percussion. It has been described as their most realized work yet, as well as honest, emotional, inspirational, and with a direct message. These 10 songs deliver strong lyrical and musical content.
The album is available on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, Spotify, and Pandora, as well as www.nmbr11.com. "Follow The Song" is also available for sale in physical format at Grimey's Record Store (Nashville, TN), Pegasus Records (Florence, AL), and nmbr11.com.
The band is currently doing their "Follow The Song" Tour 2015 during October and November. A South America Tour will take place this November, beginning in Chile, so stay tuned for shows near you!
