Are you coming out strong with a new album, new video, or even a new band as the live music industry begins to revitalize across the globe?
With a stunning split header and a clean content area, Breakbeat is the perfect template to give your website a fresh look and feel. It’s modern, mobile-ready, and features bold images and tasteful color palettes right off the bat.
Let’s take a look at how to customize this template to create a look that will breathe new energy into your website.
Big photos for a bold look
Create a unique look for your music website by using coordinated photos from a recent shoot in the header area of this template. With double the space for imagery, these photos are the perfect introduction to your sound for a new visitor. Make sure the photos reflect your personality and your music.
You can then draw from this imagery to create a color palette for the rest of your website. Pick a color for the content area, as well as your social media and streaming platform icons.
Use your call-to-action for promotion
A call-to-action is a key way to grab your website visitors' fleeting attention. Make it count with this website template by choosing a font that stands out. Grow your mailing list, or promote an upcoming single from your website.
Once you’ve customized the call-to-action, use the slider to create a gap to add some separation between your header images. Then upload an image to sit under your call-to-action text. To give your website a unique look, use the same image, cropped differently, in both header areas. Or add your artist image on one side and album art on the other.
Use the slider to change the size of this image which sits under your call-to-action to change the ratio between your featured images.

Frame your content for a cohesive feel
Once you’ve created your music website with text, video, music, and more within the content area, use a frame of color to encapsulate your website. Adjust the Page border option to narrow your content within the frame.
If you’ve already built your site, all of your content will stay intact if you decide to try out this new look. Head to the Edit Theme area to choose the Breakbeat template, then apply it to your current website. Once you’ve adjusted the options, publish your website and you’re all set.
To be sure that your fans, friends, and industry professionals can find the content they need quickly and easily, use a menu with 8 main pages or less. Once you’ve set up your pages, tailor the menu to your website's image and color choices.
For a streamlined look, display your navigation on the right, opposite your artist name and above your image. For a more quirky feel, set your menu overtop of your image, using a font in high contrast.
Animations for extra polish
Use smooth animation to make your artist name and menu float in seamlessly as your website loads. This creates a modern effect which will make your band website appear professional and polished on first impression.
Structured styled sections
The content area of this website template suggests a structure to the flow. This makes it easy to navigate, with blocks of information stacked down the page. Give your sections a modern feel by adding a section background or muted image, then customize your font and button colors to be sure it’s easy to read.
Variations to grab and go
As an independent artist you may not have the time or inclination to fully customize your color palette. With this in mind, our designers have created 4 variations of the Breakbeat template.
Each one comes with coordinated fonts, links, and colors, designed to evoke a different feeling. SImply choose the one that’s closest to the vibe you’re going for with your website, add your own main image, and you’ll have a polished look with little effort.
The first variation features a delicate blue background, white text, and pops of gold to complement the look. If you’re designing a singer-songwriter website, this is the perfect template to try out for size.
With bold black and crisp white, this template is calling out for an EDM artist, producer, or pop band to make it their own. The red tinges add some flourish and excitement, making this a modern take on the template.
The full fonts and streamlined sections in the Elegant version make it a great choice for DJs. The black outlines featured through this version also make it a nice fit for a jazz artist, composer, or classical musician.
The neutral version of Breakbeat is a wide open canvas for a band looking to make a professional mark. If you’re building a cover band website, or creating a record label, this template variation is a good place to start.
A fresh new look is always a welcome change as you brush off the cobwebs and get back into performing. Once you update your website, don’t forget to promote it to your fans, letting them know you’ve got great things to check out on your official music website.
