Websites For Bands & Musicians
Whereas a photographer or artist can contain their portfolio in a website, the musician’s reach goes far and wide across the internet. In promotion you’re likely to accumulate at least half a dozen platforms: Bandcamp, Reverb Nation, SoundCloud, SongKick and BandPage are just some, and that’s not including traditional social networks like Facebook and Twitter. They’re all free so why not take advantage? Yes, even MySpace is still kicking! Amidst all this chaos, your website is the neat, clutter-free embodiment of your musical mission. It is the definite place for tour dates, gig diaries, video galleries and detailed bios, otherwise restricted by the social networks.
Album Artwork & Online Marketing Materials
The irony of promoting music is that visuals are often at the forefront. Like it or not, albums are judged by their covers, not to mention website banners, thumbnails and website design. With graphic design services I am able to provide album or EP artwork, cover photos and full branding of your band or solo project. The result feels a little more cohesive; you could be on dozens of music networks and still feel the visuals tie together.
Aspiring musicians may wish to consult these online music guides. I wrote them so that independent artists could make the most of platforms such as BBC Introducing, Spotify and Bandcamp.
