I tried to claim my Spotify artist profile but my name doesn’t appear when I search for it. Why is that?

There are a number of reasons why your artist name might not show up when you search for it:

  • You don’t have a release live on Spotify
  • You have a new release and Spotify is in the process of putting together your profile (so be sure to check back regularly)
  • You’re listed as an additional artist on a release—you need to be the primary artist in order to claim your profile
  • Your song is released as part of a compilation under a different artist—you need to release under your own artist name through LANDR Distribution
