A premium WordPress theme by Jetpack


The Obsidian theme, like the naturally occurring volcanic glass of the same name, possesses an inherent allure that’s stylish in appearance and practical in purpose.

With distinctive background options and various customization possibilities, Obsidian makes it easy to create the ultimate hub for your online identity.

Make It Your Own

Use the Customizer to easily add a site title and tagline or upload your own logo.


Distinctive Backgrounds

Choose a color and add an image to your background to give your site a distinct look.


Adjusting the color opacity of your background allows you to control contrast and optimize the legibility of your content.


Site-Wide Jams

Obsidian includes an optional site-wide player that anchors to the bottom of the screen, allowing you to highlight a custom audio playlist. The current track displays by default, while the rest of your music is easily accessed with a playlist toggle.



To enable the site-wide player, upload MP3s and add them to the player under Theme Options in the Customizer. Uploading MP3s requires the WordPress.com Premium or Business plan.


Showcase your music in a grid using the Record Archive page template.


Single Record Pages

Single record pages give fans the opportunity to sample your music using a single or playlist audio player.  Add additional record details, purchase links, record artwork, and more.


Video Library

Creating a video library — similar to your discography — is done using the Video Archive page template.



Obsidian is fully responsive, allowing visitors to access your site on any device, from mobile to desktop.
