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.

2007-2017

Thank you for being a part of it.

Farewell,

James Miao & Samuel Hsiung

Alex Grant

What is art? Here is an answer I love from an old friend, divemaster and underwater videographer: "I define art and artists by noting that they show us the same world we live in but from a perspective that we have not attained, and probably could not attain, without that art. Some of that is because we are all individuals and we all see things differently but mere difference, in itself, does not make it art. Art has a rare and hard to define quality to it which we recognize even if we cannot reproduce or explain it.
Art it is evocative and rich. It produces emotions and conjures up images that were just around some corner before we experienced it. Art may not necessarily make our perceptions better - just different."

Alex Grant knows that being fired was one of the most positive things that ever happened to him. Raised in a strict, orderly and loving family to be “something sensible, please”, he followed this direction for forty years, when he was abruptly let go from his job as general manager of a manufacturing firm in Phoenix, Arizona. Although approached by other companies in related fields, Alex decided at that point to really look at his life. “I had always loved writing and performing music, and had a deep desire to do so professionally”, he says thoughtfully. “I finally decided that if I didn’t take this opportunity to pursue what I most love to do, I’d probably kick myself when I was eighty!”

Grant’s odyssey actually began much earlier. Growing up in a rigid, academically-oriented environment, he excelled in school, and started at the University of Missouri-Columbia on both a full academic scholarship and a Navy ROTC scholarship. “My dream back then was to fly jets” Alex reminisces. But then, midway through his sophomore year, he started writing music-“it was like a floodgate had opened”.

So life-altering was the deluge that Grant very quickly left behind the scholarships and th... (+) expand

I love coming here and listening to your music. Even the voices in my head stop talking to me and pay attention to the great work you produce. :0) You should come to Tucson for a concert appearance. It's 68 degrees under sunny skies...pretty tempting, huh?
