Every day there's more music than ever before, and it's important to differentiate your artist name from the other 30 acts with the same kind of name. Sometimes, that involves creative spelling (like changing a U to a V, a la "Cvlt"), or creative casing ("808 NATE").
While we employ our general casing standards with artist names, album and track titles, we do have some leeway when it comes to artist names.
Standard Artist Casing:
S.O.U.N.D.R.O.P (Where S.O.U.N.D.R.O.P is an acronym like A.T.M.)
Artist of the Century
Non-Standard Artist Casing:
daigoro789 - First letter is lowercase
GameChops - the "C" in Chops is uppercase in the middle of the word
XTOMHANX - the whole name is in uppercase and it's not an acronym for anything
We absolutely can deliver your unique artist name, but we'll ask for some kind of web presence.
If you have any of the following, simply shoot us an email with a link and we'll move things along for you:
- Wikipedia page
- Artist/Musician/Business Facebook page with more than 100 likes
- YouTube Video with more than 100 views
- Official artist website
- All Music Guide artist listing
- Link to a music site reviewing your content that can point to your artist name being established with this casing
