On Friday we lauched our newest artist website on Cisco’s EOS platform for Jonathan Tyler & the Northern Lights. The site was designed in house by one of our talented web designers Priyanka Batra (her last before going off to freelance full time) and was managed and built by the talented web teams at Atlantic Records and Warner Music Group.
Beyond a stylish yet clean design, and the great community features our fans have come to expect from our websites, we rolled out some exciting new features centered around concerts. For some time now we’ve wanted revamp the tour experience on our artist’s websites, and JTNL is the first site to include some of these new ideas.
Across the music industry most artist websites do a fine job of alerting you to new tour dates, but very few have given much attention to past shows. Live shows are a huge part of the music experience and we wanted to add features to our web platform to reflect that. The ARCHIVE section of the JTNL site displays past shows and allows fans to interact with those shows in new ways.
You can now rate shows, comment on your experience or upload videos or photos you have taken at the show. Beyond allowing user generated content each show has the official setlist, and on the JTNL site, each show can be downloaded in its entirety for free via Topspin! It’s a great way to experience this amazing live band and share your experiences with other fans.
