To our faithful listeners,

We've decided to formally shutdown thesixtyone.com -- our servers will go offline at midnight, May 1st 2017.

Artist tipping and music purchases will be functional until then, so please spend any remaining credits by month's end. 
A final payment will be made to artists following the shutdown.

thesixtyone was our baby for most of our twenties. We're incredibly sorry we weren't able to keep things going in the 
right direction.


Thank you for being a part of it.

"Cry Me A River" caught me totally off guard, I was expecting a cover of the Ella Fitzgerald song. I don't know the original you covered, but I love your cover. Thanks for sharing it. That's a very creative version of "Every Day Is Halloween" too. :)
