Welcomes young up-and-comer, Dmitry Willis, into the fray


October 2015 – Eleventh Ward guitarist of 4 years, Greg Llewellyn recently decided to step away from the music scene to take time to focus more on his career, new home and family. Greg’s immense talent and passion for music will be missed amongst the ranks of his bandmates, but his influence will be felt as they continue to push on after adding lead guitarist Dmitry Willis.

“I’ve been a fan of Greg’s since the first time I heard him play at an open mic in Hoboken. Every time I wrote a song it seemed like he had the perfect riff or solo to accompany it. He will be sorely missed as one of the founding members of the group.” said lead vocalist and co-founder, Chris Saunders.

Scott Gawrych to leave Eleventh Ward

Press Release: 7/23/12

New York, NY – Roughly a year after co-founding Eleventh Ward, Scott Gawrych has decided to leave the band and focus on his career and other musical projects. Here are a few words from Scott regarding his departure:

“It wasn’t easy making this decision, but I felt it was in the band’s best interest to continue on without me as the bassist. I’ve been a part of something truly special over this past year, from the first Battle of the Bands victory last year, to our debut at the Bitter End (a lifelong dream of mine). I’ve helped create the foundation for one of the most soulful and pure musical acts in NYC, and had the chance to play with some incredible musicians/artists. For that, I am truly grateful.

I’ve never been more proud of anything I’ve done creatively, and will continue to support Chris, Mark and Greg as they continue to build on this foundation. It can only get better from here and I will be along for the ride, even if only as a pedestrian.

I wish them all the best of luck, although I doubt they’ll need it.”
