The Sixty One. Highway 61

A road is a road, but sometimes it's more. Sometimes a road sings.

Drive down Highway 61 and you'll find music everywhere you turn.

Muddy Waters rode the 61. So did Bob Dylan, Ike Turner, and B.B. King. Elvis grew up in the housing projects along it.

Highway 61 was the road by which people left to find better opportunities. And by leaving they took their music to the world.

Come join us on thesixtyone.

How does it work? Musicians upload their music for listening, but rather than allowing the Simon Cowells of the world decide which songs go on the homepage, the listeners do. How, you say? If you like a song you've found on thesixtyone, just click the "bump" button to increase its bump count. Doing so will cost you points, but if songs you bump get bumped by others, you can earn more points! Collecting points increases your level and reflects your skill in picking top songs in your favorite genre!

By listening to songs through the lens of the collective community on thesixtyone, you'll always find good new music. We're committed to giving every bit of music on the web the opportunity to find its audience.

-- Sounds like a pretty cool idea.

Also, I recently played drums on a recording of a Tom Petty cover "Listen to her heart" played by Allegra Gellar. Fun stuff!

I have some photos I need to upload soon as I get through the current rush of work. Shot a bar in San Fran called the Gold Dust, I have some out takes from the G Callers shoot and some nature porn shots from Big Sur. Lot's o stuff coming soon. Just a stress ball right now and don't have the time.
