It’s crucial to have your music on Spotify as it is the biggest streaming platform in the world and one of the essential homes for music discovery today. Tastemakers and curators often use Spotify to unearth and shine a light on emerging artists.

Spotify for Artists

As soon as Songtradr distributes your music to Spotify you will have access to Spotify for Artists. One of Spotify’s coolest offerings is customization so you can keep your profile fresh and personalized which is a huge asset to promote yourself and your artist brand.

With Spotify for Artists you will be able to:

  • Customize your header and profile image
  • Edit your biography
  • Sell Merch
  • Pin new releases, singles, artist picks and curated playlists to the top of your profile
  • Share others’ playlists
  • Promote concert and tour dates
  • View analytics
  • Share band and concert photos

How Does It Work?

Once we upload your music, Spotify will connect the release to an artist profile – this means they will either create a new profile or add the new release to an existing profile. It’s imperative to claim your artist profile to be sure the connection is made correctly.

On some artist profiles, you may see a blue checkmark which means that profile is verified. The verification is available for all artists and there is no longer a minimum follower requirement to receive the blue checkmark. Simply claim your profile and you will be verified!

How to Claim Your Artist Profile

  • Go to your release on Spotify
  • Click the 3 dots beneath your artist name
  • Hover over Share and click Copy Spotify URI

I have a rap song I want to produce, but I don’t have the budget or equipment that would allow me to do so.i want to collaborate with Songtradr in getting the song coded and produced on Spotify.

    Steve · September 22, 2018 at 2:25 pm

    Songtradr doesnt do that you need a producer (like me) then once the song is produced you use songtradr to release your track to the world. When you say you have a rap song do you mean yo have lyrics written? what?

How much does it cost?

    Kyle Warner · September 24, 2018 at 5:56 pm

    Distribution comes as a part of our Songtradr Pro package for $5 per month. If you don’t want any of the Songtradr Pro benefits but are interested in distribution we offer Songtradr Distro for $20/year.

Is all of our music being uploaded? Can we opt out of this? I’d really rather not have the music me and my band have on songtradr to be on Spotify or any other streaming service. Especially because it would create duplicates of certain tracks that we already have up and also there are songs I don’t want released publicly

    Kyle Warner · September 24, 2018 at 5:58 pm

    Jameson – Distribution is completely optional on Songtradr. Your music will only be distributed if you create a release on Songtradr.

Matthew Williams · September 22, 2018 at 5:18 pm

Just tried to do this but I am seeing another band with an album in my library and it won’t let me claim my album or spot. I registered through Songtradr and am totally new to this part of the biz. Do I have to change our band name? Can I just fix it through Songtradr? I am a little perplexed

    Aliem Jumpp · November 21, 2018 at 7:18 pm

    Matthew, if you haven’t done it yet, yo need to go to artists.spotify.com and there is a help/faqs section. You can submit the credentials and ask for your catalog to be organized properly. Your work will be separated from other artists with similar names and under your profile. It takes several days. But is usually complete in a week.

I have released music under the name Billy Lightcap on Spotify. I am now releasing music under my own name Steve Merola. But when I claim my Steve Merola artist profile I keep going to the Billy Lightcap page. I own 100% of the material.

1) There is something else you can do: you can pitch directly to Spotify any upcoming releases to be considered for editorial playlists (without guarranty of inclusion, of course)

2) To sell merchandise you have to make a deal with third parties. Is not very easy, but can be done. I you want to go step by step (and achieve experience in the process), this feature is possibly the last one you will set.

Just slidin’ through to comment. A lot of veey interesting thoughts. Looking to fit into something like this, a plat that is built on honesty, integrity and most importantly, trust. ☕😎

I have a few demo’s I’d like to post, how do I go about it?

James · November 16, 2018 at 3:24 pm

Does Songtradr collect a percentage of royalties for distribution of the music? Or do artists get to keep 100%

Tim Harrison · November 22, 2018 at 12:36 am

Trying to claim my artist/track. I released a track through songtradr. Followed the instructions above. Pasted the URL. Spotify tells me that my track was uploaded by CD baby and that I should claim it through them. But I don’t have a CD baby account, but presumably I do have an artist account on Spotify? Help. Too complicated.

Hi Kyle! Spotify isn’t available in India! How can I register there?

Joy A Simons Brown · December 24, 2018 at 6:54 pm

I have several tracks on Spotify. I am verified, but i am not able to get a Spotify profile because it is not offered in Jamaica. Is that going to change anytime soon?
