Here's the web site we've just completed for The Dylan Project - something of a supergroup of the folk, rock and blues world featuring the talents of Steve Gibbons, Dave Pegg, PJ Wright, Phil Bond and Gerry Conway. The chaps wanted a simple clean site to support their tours and promote their CDs; we pitched in with a nice photo slide show and are looking forward to adding more features like a blog, or maybe some social media stuff. Early days, but the band needed the site up quickly for their Winter tour and fortunately we were able to turn it around in less than a week. They’re touring in November and December and we suggest you check out the web site to keep up to date with what they’re up to. But then of course, we would...

Here’s another new site for a screenwriter and script doctor based in Madrid, Spain. Lea wanted a simple site with plenty of white space to use as an electronic calling card for her work in the Spanish TV and film industry. We set up a showreel page with links to some her many videos on YouTube and added a blog that she can update herself. This allows her to have control over the content and keep the site fresh when it suits her, rather than having to keep coming back to us. It’s also more cost-effective to manage new content in this way.

We’re delighted to have just signed off on Helen Watson’s new web site. Helen’s one of the country’s finest jazz-blues singers with a back catalogue and track record to match the very best. She tours as a solo act, part of a duo and with both Burden of Paradise and The Lovenotes. She wanted a site that showcased her music and the ability to update gigs herself using a simple content management system. We added a carousel effect on the Music page that helps us fit more content into a smaller area without things feeling cramped; we also used a natty MP3 player for the music samples.

Here’s a new site we’ve just built for Fraser Nimmo, a Scottish singer, songwriter and actor. Fraser was keen to update his old web site with something more contemporary that he could use to promote his live appearances, sell CDs and generally keep fans - and promoters - in touch with what he’s up to. The launch of the site was time to coincide with the release of Fraser’s new CD - The Best of Five and a Wee Bit Live. The site incorporates a couple of nice, simple features - a shopping cart that works with PayPal and a music player which lets visitors hear snippets from Fraser’s last two albums.
