Internet: New Music Websites

NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- A spate of new music websites this week gives an idea of the number of LDS artists and how frequently they are getting on to the web. As technology has made it easier for musicians to write, record and produce music, the number of musicians has proliferated, and LDS musicians are no exception. For a large, but still incomplete, list of LDS musicians, see .

The sites featured this week have recently come to Mormon News' attention. Unlike most weeks, all these sites are fairly well designed and easy to use. But the most striking graphically is Julia Davis Allen's site, which includes large, attractive graphic buttons for reaching the main sections of the site.

Also notable are the sites from Excel Entertainment, which are not only effective, but show saavy marketing. Its site is an interesting attempt to present only the portion of its stable of musicians that is relevant to a particular audience.

Newly Listed Mormon Websites:
Cori Connors

Website for LDS musician from Farmington, Utah, one of the musicians who wrote and performed music for SeaTrek2001. Site organized on a 'home' theme, with a Foyer (includes a guestbook), Study (includes her performance calendar, booking information and ordering info), Family Room (photos, a biography and news), Studio (albums, mp3s and lyrics) and a Kitchen (chatroom).

Julia Davis Allen Band

Nicely designed musician website that includes Allen's biography, calendar, information, lyrics and mp3s from her CDs, news and photos.

Home page for distributors of LDS and Christian music. Currently includes just one Christmas album, and allows users to download free mp3s of selected portions. Includes pages on its artists, albums, an e-commerce page for making purchases and a list of links.

Little Stream Records

Record label that distributes LDS music for children. This Excel Entertainment label currently includes nine albums, including those of well-known LDS musician Clive Romney.

Music website provided by Excel Entertainment that features four albums suitable for LDS missionaries. Albums are by well-known LDS performers Enoch Train, Kurt Bestor, Kenneth Cope, and Clive Romney.
