15+ music artist websites.


\"\"Musicians and bands are frequently young, and usually working within a tight budget, often funding promotional material from their own pockets. As a result they’re one group of people who try their hardest to stay within a budget. Most times, this affects their web presence. Major and independent artists alike tend to go cheap on their websites by either using templates or free sites to put their music online.<\/p>\r\n

It’s no big deal, but it’s important for musicians and bands to build a brand, much like any other business. So, having a unique spot on the web can really add to the presence of the music artist.<\/p>\r\n

There are many routes an artist can take to put their brand online. Using a custom website helps create that consistent brand image that’s important to every artist. Imagine if a legitimate business’ only web presence was Facebook and Twitter. The brand is often crossed with others and can make things tough for those interested. This is the same for musicians.<\/p>\r\n

As someone who has a foot in music as well, I know and understand how tough it can be with websites. Today, I’ve put together a decent list of musicians (major and independents) who have some pretty remarkable websites.<\/p>\r\n



We start off with a well-known name in the world-renowned Beyonc\u00e9. A performer this fabulous deserves a website that is just as fabulous. This website works with her brand because it’s as if she doesn’t drop any of her history off to accomodate this website. You become closer to the artist, learn the history, learn the music and much more. This one of the most feature-rich music websites I’ve ever come across.\u00a0<\/p>\r\n



Billy Harvey Music<\/h1>\r\n

Yes, this site auto-plays the music but you must admit, this is an extremely creative idea. The album is played and you can enjoy the music, but you also get a little show of sorts from Billy Harvey himself. The links are on connected Polaroid pictures and I guarantee you will get a giggle or two out of Billy.<\/p>\r\n
