My work for The Spiritspiders wasn't my first venture into designing for the music industry but it had been one of my favorites and, in my opinion, some of my best work. A testament to how the Internet has truly come to connect us all together, Frank (in Germany) and I (in the USA) met over 15 years ago on a music message board and have collaborated and supported each others artistic journeys ever since. He gave me the opportunity to create artwork for his demo Juno back in 2005 and after that I created the visuals for every Spiders release to date.
From the band's website:
"The Spiritspiders are a band with many birthdays. In 2001 lead singer Frank M. Reeve started using the name, which is rooted in a Native American fairytale, for a series of demos, which he later uploaded on the internet. The second incarnation in 2005 saw Frank recording a series of EPs and an album-length demo. It culminated in the launch of the Spiritspiders Entertainment label in 2008. The third incarnation happened in 2010, when the line-up got together, that recorded A VOICE IN THE SKY. The Spiritspiders had completed their alchemical transformation from an idea to a rock band. In 2013 the Spiritspiders reincarnated again and plan to play gigs and record the follow-up to A VOICE IN THE SKY over the course of 2014."
While the band hasn't released new music since 2013, you never really know when The Spiritspiders will surprise us and weave another sonic web.
