Consisting of bassist Sean Anderson, drummer Rob Gommerman, guitarists Rick Jackett and James Black, and singer Scott Anderson, the band formerly known as the Rainbow Butt Monkeys got their start by winning a local radio station talent show. The band used their prize money to record their debut album "Letter From Chutney." Soon after, Gommerman left the band and was replaced by Rich Beddoe and the band changed their name to Finger Eleven. They got signed to Mercury Label in Canada and was then signed to Wind-Up Records. In 1998, F11 released "Tip." Two years later, they released "The Greyest of Blue Skies," featuring the singles "Drag You Down" and "First Time." The album also contains the Depeche Mode cover "Walking in My Shoes."
