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.

Just uploaded Cloudlines No'3, the third (so far) of a collection of melodic, ambient, soundtracky type pieces. All quite relaxed, and a good opportunity to set acoustic guitar themes against a more experimental backdrop.

Panic Lounge, my latest upload is a bit of a return to the world of Snowflake In The Desert and it's Cold Up Here etc
This taps into a style of music I've always loved i.e. a strange quirky blend of 1950's space movie, lounge music, bossa nova, experimental electonica, surrealism, cafe jazz and (unashamedly) elevator music :)

I'm occasionally asked by family members or friends to write a piece of music for a wedding, often played as registers are being signed etc. I'm always flattered, and enjoy these projects - the music becomes a lasting memory ....... plus it's about the only time everyone, the captive audience, HAS to listen to the end :)
Harry Beyond was written for a niece's Harry Potter themed wedding :)

Richard John is a guitarist and songwriter from the south west of England.
He writes acoustic based tunes with touches of electronica.
His music is always driven by melody and shifts from style to style with his many musical obsessions, from Bossa Nova, experimental electronic, alt country and folk, to lounge music and feelgood pop.

Hey Richard! The new one is great... I hear more "lounge" in there than "panic" myself;-) Thanks for sharing it with us. And thank you for offering a guitar sample...I may take you up on that one day. Sounds like a good idea!

Hello you poetic soul. :-) My lovely island is treating me well and I'm forever grateful. Sounds like you need to get away - head south to sun and sand for a vacation - well, until it all turns to sunshine and you can go back home. I loved your latest track. I really could feel the trill of tension amid the calm. I'm so glad you continue to post your wonderful creations here. :-)

Love your creations and Harry Beyond is just so sweet. I always enjoy to hear the stories behind your pieces. As far as the sun (or lack of it) remember that beyond the curtain, great light, warmth and beauty live on. I actually witnessed that the other day while standing at the window watching the wind blow gray clouds aside revealing a magnificent rainbow that had been hidden from view. It was breath-taking. I felt like I was in the audience of one of Natures's finest shows.
