I built a new website for dynamic Scottish folk band Gnoss for the launch of their upcoming album.

I was delighted when the guys asked me to build their new site. They’re a really brilliant up and coming folk band who are making some beautiful music!
 
They’re launching their new album, ‘Drawn From Deep Water’ in April and have started taking pre-orders. For the launch of their new album, they wanted to have an awesome new site to help get the word out there about their album and gigs! 
 
 
 
 
Gnoss had some stunning artwork created by Orla Stevens and photography by Martin Venherm for their album. We based their site design on these assets and came out with a lovely teal and grey colour palette, and a darker feel based on their artwork and photography. It was a really fun project to work on!

Drum Academy Scotland is a website I built for the launch of an exciting new project by Fraser Stone.

 

Fraser is a fantastic drummer and educator who decided to launch a new initiative to teach drumming to a wide range of audiences from primary aged school children to adults in professional environments. Through their work, they aim to bring a wide range of drumming and rhythm based training, services and resources to people across Scotland.
 
 
I was delighted that Fraser asked me to work with him on this project as he got ready to launch. We worked closely on this build to get the right feel that he wanted for the site and to make sure it really showcased everything they’re working on.

He also had some brilliant photos taken by Paul Jennings to showcase the instruments they’re using that have been provided by their sponsors. Check out Paul’s work too for some awesome photography and videography!

Jenna Reid is an award-winning Shetland fiddler and a wonderful composer.

 

I’ve known Jenna for a long time now and have always admired her music and work ethic. I was so pleased when she asked me to design her new website to coincide with the launch of her fifth solo album, ‘Working Hands’.

 
 

Jenna’s had websites with a number of bands she’s been a part of, but she’d never had her own site. It’s always nice to start from scratch and build something from the ground up. She also wanted a shop to sell her album on her site, so I built that functionality into her site as well.

 

While Jenna was recording her latest solo album, she had some beautiful black and white photos taken of some of the recording sessions. We used these almost exclusively for her site build, and based her design off of her dreamy recording photos and her album cover design.

 
 

 

Drop me a line here if you’d like to chat about a new project with me, or take a look at Jenna’s website here. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think!

Andrew Waite is a brilliant accordion player and composer from the Scottish Borders. He plays in bands such as Dallahan, Fourth Moon, and Eliza Carthy’s Wayward Band. Full disclosure, he is also my hilarious brother in law!

 

Andrew has been working really hard as a musician based in Glasgow for several years, and as he was about to release his first solo album he decided he needed a new website to promote and sell his album. A lot of musicians use Bandcamp to sell their albums, but I thought Andrew wouldn’t have to pay their commission fees if he was able to sell his album on his own site. As a self-employed musician, seemingly small things like this can make a big difference!
