Your main band image takes on a modern, blurred look, sitting stylishly behind a call-to-action created to direct your fans attention to your new single, video, or to sign up for your mailing list.

There are four versions to choose from with Filter, most of which feature whitespace in the content area, flanked by sections. 

The mint green featured in the elegant variation would work nicely with for a jazz artist’s website. Pops of red in the playful version would suit a songwriter or pop band well. The sombre version comes with olive and white hues. 

Finally, for a classic look, you can choose the black and white template version – perfect to capture the energy of a band with great live shots.

3. Frontier

In addition to a huge area for a striking image on the Homepage, your content area can be as wide as you want, making lots of room for images within text, photos, and more media.

With smooth animation drawing lines along the page, it’s easy to see why Frontier is a favorite among the templates for musicians. Featuring four variations, this template shows off section styles ranging from subtle to star power. Think teal and white for some pizazz, or earthy browns for an authentic folky vibe.

4. Tonic

No header image on hand just yet? No problem. Your name in the center of the white space at the top makes it a focal point instead. If you’d like to feature your name in text, you can choose from tons of bold font options, or add your band’s logo.

This template also comes in four variations, with each one a bit different and fun in its own way. Choose either a large title, or a bigger than normal menu; give your website a sentence at the top, or leave everything in sleek black and white.

All of our templates are mobile friendly, but Mezzo turns it up a notch. It mimics a mobile display with a hamburger menu on your desktop site, if you’d like. This removes the navigation text so it doesn’t cover up your image – it’ll slide out stylishly when the menu icon is clicked.

8. Duet

Music website template DuetThe Duet template is for musicians who give equal weight to image and text. Most of our band website templates look best with landscape images (horizontal), but Duet celebrates the portrait style (vertical). The header image sits on one side with text on the other. And don’t worry, you can flip them left or right.

Duet doubles your pleasure in a few other ways. Menu inside or outside of the header image? Either is fine. Border or no border? No problem. Call-to-action at the top, center or bottom? You choose. 

Duet offers four unique variations: An elegant variation, a darker sombre version, neutral grayscale, plus a colorful playful variation.

9. Forte 

Music website template ForteTwo things make the Forte template stand out: the built-in animated scroll effects, and the full-width content area option.

When scrolling down, the header image fades into the background with a subtle color overlay applied on top, giving your website a modern look.

Once your visitor has scrolled down, they will also see your content stretching from side to side. This means extra room for your photo galleries, blog posts in columns, or site-wide footer.

All four versions of Forte include a clean design aesthetic, sans serif fonts, and room to play with the margins. 

10. Anthem

Music website template example ForteIf center stage feels like home, then Anthem is a great choice for you. It features a wide open space up front, drawing attention to your band’s image.

This website template has a built-in frame that stays in place as you scroll. You can select different start and end colors so that as your visitor navigates down the page, the frame color changes. This animation adds movement to the site, making the content pop even while on the same page.

Just outside the frame there’s a spot for your band name or logo, menu, social media icons, and sitewide music player. You can customize the look with either a thin line around your image or a thick solid border that goes to the edge.

The Anthem template has four variations: Playful, Elegant, Neutral, and Sombre.

11. Limelight 

Music website template example LimelightFocus all eyes on your image with the Limelight template. It features a unique shape plus a commanding call-to-action at the top.

The four variations of this template will dictate the style of your website right off the bat. Go for a super colorful, party vibe for a cover band. Or try a clear, crisp look featuring a grayscale image combined with plenty of whitespace. You’ve also got the option to try a cream and brown version to give your website a retro vibe.

12. Echo

With 4 preset palettes, ranging from colorful (think: EDM or a DJ website) to neutral (perfect for a rock band), Echo gives your website a unique look based on your main image.

This template adapts well to mobile, and features clean fonts that are easy to read over your imagery. Use a call-to-action to mirror your band name at the top, then fill the content area with text and images. 

This template also includes a pop-up site-wide music player that displays your entire tracklist as visitors navigate all of your pages.

13. Spotlight 

Music website template example SpotlightThe Spotlight template puts you at center stage. This template works well for solo artists and single projects. Whether you’re releasing a book, podcast, or announcing a tour, Spotlight will make sure you’re in focus. 

You can use the traditional round spotlight at the top, or choose a square, rectangle, or triangle to frame your main image instead.

After adding your image, you can set it on the left, center, or right side. You can also give the text a shake up with underline, strikethrough, or lowercase options.

The Spotlight template has four sleek variations: simple grayscale, an elegant white version, a more neutral blue, and a darker variation.

14. Resonance

Singer songwriter music template example ResonanceThis striking music website template caters to a couple of different genres, adding unique graphic touches along the way.

The template variations of Resonance include a large space for a wide image, plus a clear menu underneath. From there they diverge – the first version pops off the page with a wash of yellow and hot pink. With a clean white content area and a trendy thick content border, it’s perfect for a pop band, DJ, or beats producer.

The second variation is subdued and tranquil. It features cream and medium blue tones, with title flourishes. It’s the perfect singer-songwriter template.

Then to round things out, we have a neutral version, just right for rock bands, in black and white.

All of the versions include loading animation. Your image will fade in, then your band name and menu will load. It’s a subtle yet smooth effect that will wow your website visitors on first glance.

15. Surround

Music website template example SurroundSurround is the template to use when you want to make a big impression. It features a full screen header image that gives fans some eye candy before they start navigating your site. And navigate they will, because the menu is laid out in a way to give each page name its own semi-transparent background.

With so much power in the header, you may think the content area will pale in comparison, but not to worry. You have the option to adjust the header image to display as much or as little of the image as you’d like. 

16. Encore
