Sixty Stories is a Canadian three piece, female-fronted indie rock band from Winnipeg. They formed in 1999, released a demo and toured Canada in 2000. In 2001 they released a split-CD with the defunct band Painted Thin titled Different Places to Sit / A Loveless Kiss. In 2002, the band saw the addition of Sarah Sangster on bass and released Anthem Red which made its presence felt on the Canadian National College Radio Charts.

The band's original members included Jo Snyder (guitar, vocals), Kelly Martin (bass), and Paul Furgale (drummer, formerly of Painted Thin). Martin was replaced in mid-2001 by Sarah Sangster. The band continued performing and touring through to 2004 before disbanding following the departure of Furgale.

In 2004, Jo Snyder, Sarah Sangster and Andrew Filyk formed Anthem Red, drawing their name from the title of the Sixty Stories 2002 album. As of November 2006, that band's membership consists of Snyder (guitars vocals), Sangster (bass, vocals), Dustin Karsin (drums), and Andrew Filyk (guitar, vocals). Their album, Dancing on the Dishwasher, was released in October 2006 on The Company With The Golden Arm, DE.

In November 2006, Sixty Stories reunited in preparation for a German tour promoted by the punk label The Company With The Golden Arm. Membership at that time included Sangster, Snyder, Furgale, and Andrew Filyk.
