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

Speechwriters LLC is/are difficult to describe, unless you're ready to take some liberties with the English tongue. They was (am?) initially conceived as a cautious alliance between West Coast songwriters Dave Lowensohn and Misha Chellam, who quickly became inseparable and have spent most of the 21st century touring the country in borrowed minivans. They have since managed to strike a delicate balance between California sunshine and Northwest navel gazing, resulting in a weirdly three dimensional folk-pop that resonates with Red and Blue staters alike.

The Speechwriters have won countless, meaningless awards, and once loaned Jay Farrar their amp. They currently divide their time between Portland and Vietnam, which isn't nearly as impressive once you realize there's two of them.

I really dig the Santa Monica track. I picked it up on Itunes yesterday. I found you guys because when I uploaded a track to my band's account on here you came up as "similar". Check out our stuff if you have time! thesixtyone/birdsofwales

Keep up the good work guys! We should play a show some time, we're down on the West Coast a fair bit!
