A new fully featured website for performing AAA songwriter Lorie Doswell.
The art is inspired from the cd artwork and photos we created to complement her debut album, Dream Drivin’, which has nostalgic imagery of country roads, old trucks, weathered wood, and misty vistas, as well as plenty of shots of Lorie herself.
The site is built on a robust blogging platform that allows Lorie to change content easily without a programmer’s intervention, including adding gig postings, writing news items and journal-style ruminations, adding and arranging pictures in unlimited categories, and editing text parts such as her bio, links, and contact info. There is a password protected “backstage” area that she can sign into from any browser (even a cell phone) so she can update it easily from the road.
The site has RSS feed ability, so fans can add a constantly updated Doswell gig listing to their own bookmark bar with just a few clicks.
At the bottom of every page is a secure flash player (safe from prying downloaders) that plays continuously wherever you are in the site, taking the listener through some of the highlights of the album. There is also a music page where visitors can play short samples of every album track, read lyrics, and learn about the performers on each song.
