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.

Thanks to everyone who has helped push us up to Level 5. Here's another song for you! Thanks again so very much. All the tunes are available in streaming audio on nusonics.net/listen.html. Thanks again everyone!

And one last thing. I got a call from Wayne Kramer who produced my first record. He loves the Nu-Sonics stuff and told me he was proud of how much I had grown as an artist. I have to give thanks to Scott Anthony, the best production partner anyone could hope for, and Melissa Houston, a drummer and singer who brings her own particular brand of brilliance and groove to everything she plays and sings on.

Most of all, our thanks to the listeners. So thank you all for listening.

Alex Sniderman was discovered playing with The Tone Def White Boys in Nashville at 19 by The MC5's Wayne Kramer. An impressed Kramer subsequently produced and played on Sniderman's self-tilted debut, released in 2000. The album was reissued in 2002 with new tracks featuring Kevin Salem, Billy Ficca, and Scott Yoder. Scott Anthony is a widely respected bassist and producer/engineer who has worked with musicians from David Poe to Daniel Lanois. Drummer Melissa Houston has played with a variety of acts, in addition to working as a session drummer with producer Jimi Zhivago (Rufus Wainwright, Ollabelle).

The Nu-Sonics tracked The "Eureka" E.P. at Excello Recording in Brooklyn and The Viewing Room in Springfield, New Jersey. Guests on the record include Brooklyn troubadour John Pinamonti on guitar and mandolin, alt-country singer Rebecca Turner on harmony vocals, and noted pianis... (+) expand

Y'all are more than welcome for the bumps. I'm looking forward to hearing more. There seems to be a dearth of good, solid, rocking americana tunes on the sixty one, but you're certainly helping to fill the void.
