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.

Just a thought... This song is called "Intellectual Properties Law is Bullshit":
If you want to support a musician, go hear them play live; pay for a ticket or pay them in tips. Buy their CD if you'd like to "hold" the record, or download the CD for free, then share it with other folks. If the past 10 years in music business have taught us anything, it's that the myth of the "recording artist" is a farce (thank god). If you want to be a musician, it's because you can't not play in a room full of people at every opportunity given to you. A record can be a separate art form, a little piece of performance art slaved over in production for months in a cabin, or it can be a series of moments captured in a room live to tape. Either way, the record is peripheral in comparison to live performance. A working musician works in a room full of people, creates a moment that provides relief, joy, transcendence, nostalgia, or provokes thought for the duration of the time available. THAT's the job. End of song.

Stephanie Nilles is an independent musician constantly on the move. At 17, she was a finalist at the Young Concert Artists' International Competition. At 22, she had graduated from the Cleveland Institute of Music with a BM in classical piano performance. These days, she's performing her own politically-influenced jazz/folk tunes, described by listeners as "Ella Fitzgerald on speed beating the shit out of Regina Spektor" and "Tom Waits on helium," in her adopted home base of New York City and out on the road in a hatchback with a Roland. She has performed at joints like Zankel Hall at Carnegie Hall, The Bitter End, The Cutting Room, WFMT's "Live from Studio One," and the Dame Myra Hess Series at the Chicago Cultural Center, and she has collaborated with artists such as Bobby McFerrin, Joel Newton, and Christian Howes, in styles ranging from free improv to burlesque accompaniment. Stephanie's songs, sometimes "brutally honest," address issues ranging from drug busts in her Harlem neighborhood and feminism to the recent election and life on the road. "She is a poet without being pretentious about it; she is bluesy, jazzy, soulful (in her way), and lets her music pour out in such a... (+) expand

Let me know when you're coming to Norway, and I'll both go to your show and buy your merchandise (bring lots of t-shirts). I might even steal a hug if you let me:)

In the meantime, however, you should fix this page so I can tip you!

I don't entirely agree with you on the "Intellectual Properties Law is Bullshit." What about Nick Drake? I agree that live and record are two different art forms, but why do they have to always come with each other and why is live 'better'?

On a side note, I really dig your style. :]
