You’ve been working on your vocal technique since you were little. You’ve been practicing and performing and building your network.
Now you need a sleek, professional website to promote yourself as a singer but it’s hard to know where to begin. So what kind of website template should you choose? How can you customize it to best reflect your singing style?
Selecting your songs and rehearsing a performance is very different than making a website for your music. Think of a website template as a starting off point - a place to put your bits and pieces of imagery and songs.
Let’s take a look at how some of these artists have used their personalities and content to create a great looking singer website.
High-quality header imager
When you start designing your singer website, you’ll want to find a great image that shows off your personality on stage. The photo Afro-Soul/Jazz artist Aramide has chosen to open up her website is perfect. It not only shows who she is, but you get a sense of her music straight away.
Looking at the quality of that image makes you think she’s a professional, and you want to find out more. With that perfect header image, you also get a range of colors to use in your website - blues, oranges, and other coordinating colors work well for Aramide’s link and button colors.
Nyah Grace has a great image as well - one that appears powerful and calm. You’d guess from looking at it that she’s got a strong set of pipes. Click play on her music player and you’d be right. As a songstress with creative flair, her imagery is set on one side.

A good story
You can tell your story in two ways. The first is with a compelling image, and the second is with a strong artist bio. Combine the two and you’ll have a compelling page that draws in your fans.
Although he’s well-known for his Freddy Mercury-like chops, Marc Martel also has a great story. He outlines it beautifully on this About page, touching on his past accomplishments and releases.
Artist: Marc Martel
Looking at his main image, you can tell he’s a seasoned performer. His color scheme goes really well together, greyscale plus crisp white text. The hints of red make his name and menu pop out.
Charcoal or black plus white is a stunning way to provide contrast to your website’s About page. Erin Stone, a Toronto-based soprano, uses this combination with some gold text to create a look that’s subdued, yet classic. The design palette is overall pleasing but refined, perfect for a classical singer.

This goes without saying, but let’s say it anyways - as a singer, you need to have music on your website! It doesn’t have to be CD upon CD of best-selling albums. Even a few videos with excellent sound quality will help your voice shine online.
Rootsy folk singer Dana Wylie bases her website’s design on her album artwork. This is clever and makes for a cohesive look throughout her site. It also draws attention to her music.
Taking notes of teal and darker blue, set against a neutral background, her use of color sets the tone for her laid back yet infectious tunes.

With tons of popular videos to his credit, Broadway singer and actor Myles Erlick makes great use of a simple design. With all of his videos lined down the page, and a super clear logo and menu, it’s easy to find what you’re looking for.

Form of contact
If you’re looking to book events, you need to be reachable. Add a contact form, your email address, or even your phone number. On a contact page, you can also include an image and your social media links.
George Moss, a Christian hip-hop/rap artist, has a detailed contact page plus a thorough bookings page with FAQs. It helps cut down on the back and forth to lay out the requirements (think stage plot, budget, time frame, and travel).
Laying these out in a sleek and organized way like George does amps up the sense of professionalism, with all questions answered.
