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.

Caroline Herring: Gothic Story Songs-NPR

January 2, 2010 - Mississippi singer-songwriter Caroline Herring's new album, Golden Apples of the Sun, is her most intimate and mature work to date, mixing timelessly personal story songs with Gothic tales of the modern South. But the record also includes a handful of familiar tunes, rendered anew by the singer, including classics such as "See See Rider," "Long Black Veil" and even a reinvention of Cyndi Lauper's 1986 hit "True Colors."

"I thought I could never sing it like Cyndi Lauper did," Herring tells All Things Considered guest host Mary Louise Kelly. "I'm a folksinger. I don't have that range; I don't have that style. I think Cyndi Lauper is amazing and a real American original, and so I thought she wouldn't mind. In fact, I thought she'd like it if I changed things around."

Caroline Herring is a Mississippi-born artist whose music has been hailed for combining traditional folk and bluegrass sounds with striking, original observations of modern life and love. Thoroughly steeped in southern culture, Herring began her music career in Austin, TX, where she released her first album, “Twilight,” and won Best New Artist in both the Austin American Statesman and Austin Chronicle in 2002. Since that time, Herring has built an international following and released three more albums, including the masterpiece “Golden Apples of the Sun.”

The critical acclaim for “Golden Apples of the Sun” firmly supports Herring’s status as one of the top musical artists of her generation. The Oxford American says, “Golden Apples is the album of a woman who has come into her powers as a singer-songwriter, claiming as her stomping ground the territory where folk meets alt-country.” NPR’s All Things Considered interviewed Caroline in January 2010 about the making of the record, and Jim Allen of All Music Guide said the following: “It's not easy being a great folksinger -- Kate Wolf, Linda Thompson, and Iris DeMent are some of the names on the short...
