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.


James Miao & Samuel Hsiung

Come On All You Faithfull

“A likely candidate for album of the year. It’s that special.” 5/5 Sunday Times Pop CD of the Week
"Conrad Lambert displays the kind of talent that pop award judges shouldn't be allowed to ignore.....there is such a wealth of natural songwriting ability on display here...it’s the singers lyrical gift that grip’" 5/5 Independent Album of the Week
“Had Thom Yorke penned anything as moving as ‘Silver Moon Ladders’ or ‘Presume Too Much’ for his solo effort, the applause would still be ringing” 4/5 Uncut
"Chris Martin has endorsed Merz in the past because he knows that only at the absolute top of their game can his band get close to the power of Lambert's songwriting. Only two questions remain: why isn't he much much more famous and why did he name the album after a removal truck?" The Times
“Intricate, melodious songs that blend electronica and folk… understated, heartfelt stuff” 4/5 Q
"Lambert is a singular talent... an album of subtle enchantments" The Observer
“A delicate, sweetly sung tour de force” 4/5 The Sun
“Unsettlingly good” 7/10 NME
“An album of rare musical intelligence, illuminated by intriguing arrangements…there’s no doubt he’s a significant if eccentric talent” Daily Telegraph

Although some tiffs between artist and record label end badly for the artist, sometimes a little distance from the kerfuffle allows the artist to make a more honest go of it the second time around, being freed from the yoke of corporate music culture. This was the case with Bristol based musician Merz (real name: Conrad Lambert) who, after leaving behind a major label deal in 1999 returned in 2005 with the album Loveheart. The return work won Merz a great deal of respect and plaudits, as well as freedom from the massive amounts of hype that plagued the early part of his career. A single in March of 2008, entitled "Presume Too Much," was released to critical praise, and was to be followed by Merz's third album, Moi et Mon Camion. The album was to feature the talents of Orbital's Paul Hartnoll. ~ Chris True, All Music Guide

nice these new songs...........but

Try to load songs slowly - one or two at a time and then let them collect the looove - before loading more usually a week or two. People have limited "hearts" to give your songs, and it's best to build a following slowly.
