5. Tuned Balloon Music
One issue with some themes is that if too many people use them, they aren’t unique any more. Fortunately, WordPress template developers work hard to ensure that this isn’t the case, and musicians and bands that strive for originality can maintain their own stamp on things. Tuned Balloon Music is as great as it sounds, and allows for much customisation, meaning that your bands image and personality shines through in more than just the music. You can also sell your music via your site with the WooCommerce plugins.
