Compound Artists - Style Guide

Only one artist should be entered into each Artist field.  If two or more artists or groups are entered into a single Artist field it prevents individual identification of artists at the music services, which will prevent the products and tracks from populating artist pages correctly.  If more than one artist performs on a product or track, each must be entered separately with its own role.

Correct:

 

Incorrect:

 

Artists who are generally listed together or as a band or group must be listed together and are not considered Compound Artists.  Eg:

  • Simon & Garfunkel
  • Brookes & Dunne
  • Hootie & The Blowfish
  • Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young

 

Example:

 

If a product has more than three Main Artists on the product level, Various Artists must be entered on the product level with a Main role.
