12 WordPress Templates for Musicians Worth Singing About [Elementor Compatible]

Are you a musician? Don't settle for an Instagram or a SoundCloud page, build your own website! In this post, we present a collection of the best WordPress templates for musicians, compatible of course with Elementor.

Friedrich Nietzsche once said, “Without music, life would be a mistake.” Music is an essential part of our lives. It has the power to put you at ease and creates an enjoyable environment. Most of us have at least one song that, when we hear it, triggers an emotional response. Music is hardwired in our brains and, as a result, we have such a deep connection to it. 

When we’re thinking about music, most of us imagine a star on stage. But the music star is just the tip of the iceberg; the music industry encompasses a broad spectrum of artists, people who work in record labels, event organizers and promoters, and many others involved in this industry. 

No matter what you do in the music industry, you should always have a great online presence. Many musicians use Instagram, Facebook, Spotify, SoundCloud, and YouTube to share their work with other people, still, it’s essential to have a place that people can go to see this information in a structured way. A website can play the role of a central hub to provide important information.

Below you will find a collection of the best music-related website templates for building your music website. They are not only visually appealing but also optimized for speed and performance with tons of customization options.

  1. Hi, thanks for the post.
    I have a better idea.
    You could put a background music and tubiese some controls, volume, etc, modifiable with styles.
    This would be very good.
    Currently Elementor, does not have these types of options. Not for example a widget to put audios by scroll or when clicking or hover in elements.
    Audio is a great ally and in my opinion, a good widget option.

  2. Most of these & their functions can be custom made just using Elementor Pro..

    BUT what I can’t find is a solid working ‘waveform player’ plugin that works similar to SoundCloud’s player (where you can click around a waveform to play from that point but without the SoundCloud branding & fee’s!)…
