As the Bandzoogle family grows, so does our roster of website templates named after our beautiful children. Congratulations to our developer Dave S. on the recent addition of his son! Our latest music website template, Jacob, is a sleek symphony of neutral palettes and plenty of space. It features several classic color combinations, and a full-page background area option.
Let’s take a look at this simple yet classic theme and see how you can use it to customize your website’s design!
Customization starts at the top
With the Jacob website template, your artist name and the pages in your menu will sit at the very top. To customize this, you can choose any font, word sizing, and spacing you’d like. Then, add a background color to sit behind your text. You can set your menu above your band name, or below it.
Since this template includes a simple menu and text at the top, get as creative as you like with the content area of your website. Think of your content on the page in stacked sections - a section for your bio image and text, one for your latest music, and another for your news section.
With the Jacob template, you can extend these sections full-width to take up more real estate across the page. Style each section by adding a background image that includes some opacity, letting just a hint of the photo peek through. Setting these section background images to ‘fixed’ will make your content scroll as the image stays put, creating a modern effect.
Page background image
Another nice customization option with this website template is to add a full page background image. Make it subtle, so it flows behind your content, or use a striking image paired with a high contrast font. Set the image position to the left, center, or to the right. Then adjust the width of your content to allow the background to show to the sides, if you’d like.
Super stylish music players
Choose from any number of music player options with this music website template. A site-wide player is positioned to the bottom right of your website, neatly tucked away for continuous listening, but will also expand to display the entire playlist when clicked.
The clean lines and content area of this template lend itself well to multiple music players without giving a cluttered appearance to your website. So you can add a player to show off your latest single, or a track list to sell your songs.
Music website EPK section
The Jacob template is a blank canvas on which to build your brand. With that in mind, take advantage of the wide open space to add an EPK for your music. Be sure to place your best track, your bio, and some press photos in a layout that is sure to be showcased nicely by the crisp background and clean fonts - no matter which version you select as a starting point.
Four palettes to suit your style
If you’re looking to grab a template and go, simply choose from one of the preset options. With colors and fonts selected to suit each other seamlessly, each original version will look great with any musician’s content. You can choose one of the preset variations as a base, and customize as much or as little as you’d like from there.
Simple and classic black and white
If you’ve got greyscale imagery ready to go, it’ll pair perfectly with the neutral version of the Jacob template. As an instant classic in black-and-white, just add an image feature and music player to set the tone for this version. From the clean lines to sans serif fonts, this template is set up for a rock band to add their own finishing touches.
Super sleek and sombre palette
The second variation of Jacob is another classic. The Sombre black background and crisp white lettering will set up a jazz musician’s website for success. Adding a pop or two of bright color will create a nice flow within the content area.
Playful, vibrant colors
The Playful version of Jacob comes ready made with an electric background image. Pick up on the pink and blue tones to create a website for your virtual music festival, beats website, or pop band.
Neutral and elegant
Finally, the fourth version of this website template is a study in elegance. With creams and neutral brown leading the color selection, adding an image to the background will create a subtle feel to your website. This version works well for a music teacher, or a singer-songwriter looking to find that simple, yet sophisticated look.
Making a website for your music can be easy and stress-free. Once you choose the version of Jacob that calls out to you, customize the look as much as you’d like. Then add your content to create a winning website design that will contain your content, music, and EPK for your fans to explore.
