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.

Recording the album at its modernistic Eichler headquarters in Sunnyvale, California, the band took its time to decorate each track (or in some cases, de-decorate) for maximum emotional impact.

Featuring Clapp on vocals, piano guitar and drums, Oed Ronne (The Ocean Blue) on lead guitars, electric sitar and vibes, Jill Pries on bass guitars, Bob Vickers (The Incredible Vickers Bros.) on drums and guitars, John Moremen (Jad Fair, the Roy Loney Band) on guitars, all the itinerant members of the band are represented.

In my comment Charmed Life, I said how much I liked the intro guitar part--neglected to say how much I also like the guitar/electric sitar solo section. Very tasty work. Cheers!

I second the motion of dezkicks. Itunes and Amazon are making it difficult for folks outside of the US to buy your music so please make them available here. Thanks.

The band posted a blog about the making of Birds of a Feather yesterday!!! Apparently, the song was composed, arranged and fully recorded in a 48-hour period, Brill-Building style!
