If there's one thing every artist on Spotify should do, it's claiming their artist page through Spotify for Artists. Claiming your page gives you more control over your Spotify profile, gives you the blue 'verified' check mark, and allows you to view more information about your streams and followers.
You can upload a banner image, write a bio, promote your shows, submit songs for playlist consideration and promote songs you love. And like love, it doesn't cost a thing.
First things first, find your artist page on Spotify and copy the link by clicking the three dots to the right of "Follow", clicking "Share", then clicking "Copy Artist Link"
Once you have that copied, head over to https://artists.spotify.com/ and click "Claim Your Profile". Select whether you're an artist or a manager, then paste in your link. You'll see your profile pop up. Click your profile, then request access!
Spotify will review your request and make sure that you're who you say you are. Once they do that, you'll be able to log into your page and make all the changes. They even have a nice app you can use to manage your page.
What if I'm mixed up with another artist on Spotify
Oof, sorry about that! Sometimes that happens if you have the same name as another artist. We can totally fix it up for you, but please don't claim your page before we get that straightened out. We don't want you to verify the page we're requesting you to be removed from!
