Making music requires creativity, enthusiasm, and perseverance. With so much of your energy going toward performances or studio recordings, it can be challenging to carve out time for your presence on the web.
Whether you’re looking for a template that allows you to plug and play, or you want something that’s as customizable as your sound, the Shade music website template can kick start your website goals and get you going in the right direction.
The Shade template makes an impact with a full-page header image, customizable content border widths, and opacity overlay options. Let’s take a look at the full range of options available with Shade.
Lead the way
Your music website is the ultimate hub for the content across the web. With the Shade template, your band name or logo will sit boldly between icons that link out to your social channels and your website menu. A number of loading animations will accentuate these elements and encourage your fans to click through to all the possibilities.
Playing with opacity
Finding a way to highlight your content in a visually impactful way can seem intimidating. You want to help your fans focus on what’s on the page, without detracting from the content itself - that’s where the Shade template comes in.
The Shade template offers opacity sliders for your header background, page background, borders, and sections, making it easy to pull focus toward your latest single, your musician bio, and any other content across your website.
Because your header image sits in the background of your page, the opacity sliders allow you to add translucent backgrounds that float beneath your content while keeping your image in sight. This works especially well if you have album art, a promotional video clip, or a professional band photo that you want to spotlight on your website.

Page width, position, and borders
The Shade template features page width options that allow you to set your content to span the full-width down to half of the page size. In addition to custom width options, you can set the position of your content to the left, center, or right of the screen.
These custom options are great when you want to reveal your header image. You can also try stylizing your sections with these options applied to add trailblazing style.
In addition to page width and positioning options, you can apply borders to your page. The outer border can be adjusted in size, color, and opacity and the inner border, that sits between your sections, can also be adjusted in size, color, and opacity.
Variations to get you started
To help you get started, we’ve created variations that combine a stylish color palette with the other Shade template options already applied. You can design your website right away by applying the variation of your choice, or further customize the Shade template to match your unique style.
With subtle background color opacities and clear inner and outer borders, your content hovers elegantly over your full page header image with this variation. The Elegant variation is perfect for a jazz band that plays intimate events, as the darkened, opaque tones and serif titles lend themselves to a smooth and sophisticated project.
The Neutral variation sets your header area to the max with no overlay, giving your full-page header image room to be seen. The soft cursive site title mixed with serif fonts throughout your content gives you the perfect slate to craft a singer-songwriter website. The Neutral variation adds a large border around your sections, which is great for variegated page content.
Fuschia buttons and links pop against a translucent blue background for a stunning vibrance with the Playful variation. The interplay between the whimsical main content fonts and the robotic looking title font creates visual entertainment that is sure to make an impression on fans. Try the Playful variation for an energetic pop music project.
The Sombre variation features bold, black section backgrounds and borders so your content is fully enveloped. The full-height header area lets your header image feature prominently on your pages and, with peachy button and link highlights, the Sombre variation has a vintage feel that’s perfect for a country or Americana musician.
