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.

"Banks' melodies are beautifully mesmerizing."
-The Austin Chronicle



"Songwriter Paul Banks is another Austin force to be reckoned with . . . His favorite songwriter is Paul Simon, but Banks' voice has supreme range. He can go from sounding like a folk-singer Strokes frontman to a gorgeous Roy Orbison to stripped down Muse. There is an epic sweep to Banks' songs . . ."
-San Antonio Express News, Show Review

"The perfect swell to ring against de Ville’s rock grotto, local songsmith Paul Banks and his Carousels quartet build mesmerizing pop wrought with vocals that split the difference between Rufus Wainwright and Jeff Buckley."
-The Austin Chronicle, Show Recommendation

"Soaring and dare I say angelic vocal stylings, which easily split the difference between Thom Yorke and Jeff Buckley. I’d be lying if I said I’m not absolutely floored by this man’s singing, and I have ...

You are a sexy man....Medicine still gets me every time...like a crow swallowing too much than he/she can handle, because crows are the most indulgent of birds if they have the chance...as well as the most cruel. Anyways, I love you and miss you. You voice is obviously terrible...seriously. why do you even sing? Can't wait to hear more finished tracks! Haven't been to Mike's in a while to listen, I guess that makes me lazy. say hello to Lindsey for me as well as Austin, and the carousels.

This place called podcastalley is an alternative place for people go to find new podcasts to listen to instead of iTunes, but more importantly, it's where sponsors go to find places to advertise. Voting is a monthly deal and although I would really appreciate it if people took the time to "bump" my podcast over there every month, I'm not going to spam with this message again. Last night my podcast was in the #1 position of the music section with a whopping 6 votes. Yeah... It's pathetic but voting on that site has been really screwed up this month and things are just getting back to normal. If I've had you on my show or you've enjoyed anything about my show I could use your bump now. It's just a couple clicks away and they do not spam. Again, this will be the last time I beg for your "bump" here. I'll save future begging for my podcast. Thanks in advance for ALREADY making me #1 in the music section over there. :)

Okay, I gotta ask, sorry if you're sick of the question. You aren't named after the Interpol guy, right? It's just a coincidence? I just bumped Medicine to make up for asking this (also I like the song).
