Designed with the intention to convey the Americana look and feel of the music and album content, I designed this interactive multi-media website for Irish-American musician, author, and singer-songwriter, Kevin O'Donnell for his solo concept album: Deep is the Well
Extened view of the home page with music player and introduction along with sidebar components: social media; album purchase; bootleg track; mailing list; and contact form.
One of Kevin's objectives for the site was for it be interactive for the listener and have extra content to dive into including this page titled "Anatomy of a Song" with video, photos, and scrap notes documenting the process of a song's conception.
The heart of the website lies in the Family Tree, an interactive exploration into the background and character stories behind each song and to outline the relations between the characters. Deep is the Well is a work of historical fiction following the descendants of a 19th century Irish immigrant in America.
Each character story is accompayied by vintage photos and links to further reading on related history.
Through links within the Family History pages or within it's own menu item you may find the songs accordion from where you may read, share, or print the lyrics, chords and author's notes for each song on the album.
The Author page highlights the musician's separate publshed work as an author and features an audio passage from his book read by the author as well as video and purchase link.
Events page for listing all related info and links for the inital cd release and following for any future events.
Explore the site usiing the navigation bar and drop-menu items. Read reviews, blog posts, download promo images, read all About the songwriter, and link to the other musicians featured on the album
Another character page from the Family History and finally the footer.
