The Sixth Year

The Sixth Year is a Philadelphia-based indie alt-rock band consisting of Ryan Downs on vocals and lead guitar, Tom Amey on bass, and Andrew Brubaker on the drums.

“Chasing Ground” is infectious, a sublime manifestation of the meanderings of a young man contemplating the numerous paths one can take in life.

What is contentment? What is happiness? Does anything really matter?

I honestly don’t know.

And now, listen and dig my friends…

“we could settle down in a little town”

We do not promote music for pay. Nor do we run intrusive advertisements. We are the resistance to the watered-down mainstream filth that currently pollutes our commercial airwaves. Without you, indie music would be dead and we wouldn’t exist. So, thank you.

Contribute to the survival of independent music. 100% of your contribution will go towards the proliferation of independent artists.
