60 Seconds With… Six60



Define your genre in five words or less:

We own all genres haha

What can a punter expect from your live show?

Our live shows are always really exciting. It feels like anything can happen on any given night. We put every last drop of our energy into every single show.

What makes a good musician?

Someone who cares about the way the listener feels. It’s never enough to simply ‘understand’ music, it should be felt.

What do you hate about the music industry?

Some artists seem to have the perception that you have to shave off influences to refine your voice. Bands and singers get caged in by genre expectation and that’s always been a turn off for me.

Do you have a pre-gig ritual? If so, what is it?

Everyone in SIX60 kinda has there own, but it’s all about focusing. I like to physically warm up and get my heart rate up so I never hit the stage stiff and cold. I want to give the best 90mins possible every single show. Also I like to kick or throw a chair… I have no idea why.

When’s the gig?

We’re playing at The Hi-Fi on Friday April 27.

I hope they have some light but sturdy chairs backstage…
