I recently finished designing and coding a website for Ryan Sousa, an up-and-coming musician who mainly does reggae, jazz, and soft rock. He wanted a layout that was: a) clean and unobtrusive but still implied his genre of music, and b) allowed him to post updates and share new songs quickly and easily.
As this was the first Wordpress-powered music website I was commissioned to do, there was a steep learning curve I had to go through to figure out how to integrate things that all musicians require on their site: music players, show listings, social media widgets, etc. All I can say is that it was frustrating but very rewarding in the end.
There’s still a lot of bug-testing to do so I’m not ready to share the full website just yet, but you can see the mockup of it HERE, though some changes were made in its final iteration.
