thesixtyone's guiding principle is to enable the creative middle class, providing talented artists the opportunity to make a living making music. Today, we're excited to introduce an online marketplace for supporting your favorite music on thesixtyone.
On thesixtyone, artists sell their music directly to their fans. Unlike a record or distribution deal where they only make $1-2 per album (if they ever get paid, that is), artists on thesixtyone make at least $7 per album and are paid every 30 days!
Listeners who support artists via tipping or buying music (patrons as we call them) are rewarded with colorful usernames corresponding to their level of support. These top patrons are listed in the leaderboards.
Songs or albums can be purchased via the download link. The bazaar's open for all artists. Here's a rundown of some of the artists available today.
