Hi, I'm State Shirt.

My real name is not State Shirt (it's Ethan Tufts), but I do wear a lot of state shirts. I spend as much time as humanly possible writing, recording, and producing music. And creating music videos. And being a nerd.

I've been told my music is kinda like if The Postal Service, Radiohead, Beck, Elbow, and The Folk Implosion all got in a bar fight then make up over frosty Newcastle Ales.

All of my music is open source and available for free. Download any or all of my songs, share them with friends, use them for youtube videos, grab the source files and create your own remixes or mash-ups.

I don't have a marketing department or a publicity team. So if you like what you hear, please spread the word and consider buying a CD, MP3, or a t-shirt. It allows me to continue to make music. And I appreciate that so much.

    mate, did you know your background on the new T61 isn't the 'WTF happened' speech bubble anymore, but a nice politically correct pic of you staring out into the distance? Just popped over to see how many hearts new songs were getting these days out of interest and by coincidence it gave me one of your tracks.

    I just wondered if you changed it or if a certain James & Sam did it without you knowing? Cos if the latter, that's reeeeally wrong, man.

      hmm looks like i did it. they give you the option to upload photos for each song, but apparently it must change the background for everything. gotta fix that!

    Love 61 Ways

    I was on T61 for about 3 months but I had flat out fallen in love with the site. I hadn't gotten to your stuff yet until I heard 61 ways. I think it's a truly inspired work and has now drawn me to listen to your other stuff now that you're here.
