visit the site

We built this site in conjunction with Marc Harkness, a wonderful designer from east Tennessee. Mark did all the design and we coded, authored and built the site. Formed in 2007, Lightning Rod Records is a Nashville-based independent record label. Lightning Rod Records's first artist signing was critically lauded singer-songwriter James McMurtry. Since then they have also worked with Jason Isbell and Joe Pug. Label founder Logan Rogers previously worked as Vice President of A&R for Compadre Records on the release of McMurtry's last two albums. The label is distributed in the United States by Thirty Tigers/RED.

When the label was formed one of their first and foremost needs was a website that provided visitors with a place to explore the artists, listen to their music, watch videos and order CDs. A custom "admin" section allows the label to update the news page on their own. Links are provided for email newsletter, street teams and Facebook.

We do lots of things here at DVM. Mostly we design, code and build websites, but sometimes we partner with others and handle just the design or just the coding. Take at look at some of the projects we've done with our partners.
