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.


James Miao & Samuel Hsiung

Hey everyone, We just launched a crowd sourcing campaign to help raise the $9000 needed to record. I've self funded all my previous albums but with the tour bus being built all of the resources made as a busker go towards the bus project. So I'm asking for your help, If you can afford it and like our music please consider donating.


I just uploaded a new song on the Mandocello called "waterfall" on this website.

Thank you for your support! and if you can't support I totally understand, times are tough when it comes to finances. If you'd still like to show support towards the Fish in a Birdcage project please share this Gofundme in any way you can.

Thank you!!

Do you perform in Victoria? Solstice Cafe perhaps? That might be too small of a space to manage you. Maybe in the summer when the back patio is open? Really glad you posted more music here for us. You have a wonderful sound.
