Nashville based pop-country duo, SixForty1 (Brooks Hoffman and Austin Gee) are bringing people together in a big way. The duo originally formed when the two met at Murray State, in Kentucky. Since then, the goal of the band was to bring people together, through their music, as does highway 641, the band’s namesake.
Since making the move to Nashville in 2018, they have managed to create quite a buzz. The two have a unique and inimitable songwriting chemistry and a knack for catchy and clever musical phrasing.
The band has yet to put out a full-length album, but from the two EPs and the handful of singles SixForty1 has released in just a short time, while also landing on major Spotify playlists like “Breakout Country”, “New Boots”, “Next from Nashville” and “Wild Country”.
The group has found early success and fandom, attracting Aaron Tannenbaum, CAA booking agent powerhouse who is also responsible for Luke Combs, Martina McBride, Brantley Gilbert and Brett Young. The group also turned the head of manager Aaron Keiser at Morris Higham Management; a Nashville based management company representing artists Brandon Lay, Brantley Gilbert, Carly Pearce, Kenny Chesney, Michael Ray, and Old Dominion. Since Tannenbaum and Keiser came on board, SixForty1 has toured with several acts including Brantley Gilbert, Michael Ray, Walker Hayes and Muscadine Bloodline, while also making appearances at Brantley Gilbert’s first and second annual Kick It In The Ship cruise.
With an arsenal of new music in the works and a solid support team in place behind them, 2020 is poised to be a momentous year for Hoffman and Gee.
