In an effort to stop artist releases appearing on the wrong Spotify profiles, we have a Spotify look-up function built right into our release upload tool. This means that every time you make a release, you can choose the correct artist profile for your release to land on, or opt to create a new Spotify artist profile if it’s your first release.
If, when creating your release, you type in your name and it doesn’t appear, this could be for a few reasons, so please check all the points below. If your name still doesn’t appear then you can manually add your artist profile link.
Why can’t I find my Spotify artist profile?
- You may have used the same name as an already existing, high profile and high streaming artist – we recommend choosing a unique artist name unless they are the high-profile artist
- The artist name has been flagged as having copyright claims with the stores and they have blocked that artist name – this issue will need to be resolved before music is distributed through Spinnup
- You have used discriminatory or ultra-right wing wording, or have previously been flagged by us or the stores for promoting these ideals through your music, which Spinnup does not tolerate
- This is your first release, which means there is no existing profile for you to select. In this case type in your artist name and click ‘create new profile’
We can’t 100% guarantee your release will go live on the right profile as this is something that happens in Spotify’s systems, but we do our best to make sure the whole process is as smooth as possible for our artists.
If your release does end up on another artist’s page don’t worry, it’s easily fixed! Read our article on artist separation for more info.
