Biography

SIX60 is a five piece New Zealand band that formed in 2008. Their self-titled debut album was released on 10 October 2011 on their own label Massive Entertainment. The album debuted at number one in the New Zealand charts and was certified gold within its first week of release. Their first two singles "Rise Up 2.0" and "Don't Forget Your Roots" reached number one and number two respectively on the RIANZ singles chart and were both certified double and triple platinum. 

SIX60 was formed in Dunedin, the founding members met while attending the University of Otago. The band created their name from the street number of the house they lived at in Dunedin. 
Their local following developed from Dunedin to other student hubs around the country such as Auckland, Waikato, Christchurch and Wellington. 
SIX60's original EP (released 2009) contained a track called "Someone to be around". This track was left off their debut album but remains one of the most popular songs. 
SIX60 have a quadruple platinum number one debut album with triple platinum selling single "Don't Forget Your Roots", two double platinum selling singles "Only To Be" and "Rise Up", one platinum selling single "Forever", and one gold selling single "Lost". 
In early March 2013 the band was featured on George FM Breakfast's 'Damn! I Wish I Was Your Cover' series covering Rudimental's "Feel the Love". 
In 2014, their song "Run For It" was featured on the trailer of ITV drama series Prey, starring John Simm.
