Magento problem - Create an A-Z of artists and artist profiles related to products

Hi Guys,

Pretty new to Magento and hit a bit of a stumbling block. I was hoping someone here might be able to help me.

I’ve been asked to create a shop that sells dvds, books and posters. As part of the feature request, my client wants to be able to filter products based on artists that feature in the films. I’ve been able to do this by creating an artist_name attribute and attaching products to this attribute set.

The problem I have though is that the client also wants to have an “Artists” page, which will show a list of all the artists on the site, and when you click on an artist it will give a short bio for each person. Underneath the bio will be related products - so a list of products that relate to that artist.

I’ve been able to get the products filterable by artist, but I’m stumped in terms of how to make this artist page, with the listing of artists, followed by a short bio when you click on an artist, with related products underneath.

If you can help I would really appreciate it. Thanks!
