I want to create a place to store, display, play, and share all of the songs that family members and me have written (possibly a thousand mp3 files).

WordPress provides some great audio players, so I am not worried about that.  What I am trying to think through is the best way to organize the data.

Right now I am thinking that I need to create a custom post type for “song” with custom taxonomies for song information so that I can easily sort through mp3s.

My custom taxonomies at present are potentially:

  • Artist
  • Release Year
  • Album Title
  • Song length
  • Genre (Rock, Country, Metal, Pop, Rap, etc.)

Am I thinking about this correctly?
