I'm wondering what are the potential disadvantages when changing my artist name. I'm currently featured in a few Spotify Editorial Playlists, and I'm wondering what will happen to those placements when I change my name. Will my songs be removed for those playlists? I know my followers will be transferred over, and my monthly listeners will be rebuilt. Are there any other logistic downsides on changing my artist name? Changing your artist name is a mess. Things have to be updated and some stats will end up having to be rebuilt if they can't be transfered over. Sometimes everything on Spotify can be moved over smoothly to the new artist name. Other streaming services will of course have different rules set up.
Recently I added myself to Spotify for artists and was curious, I put my artist name in as iiiQ. Now I have been verified but yet the name is displayed as Iiiq which in my opinion looks a little weird. I also have distrokid as a distributor, I was looking to get pointed in the right direction to get this changed! Please let me know if you have experienced anything along these lines or know something that could help! Go to Solution. To update your artist name, your label or distributor DistroKid, in this case needs to submit a metadata update to Spotify. Spotify is unable to make these changes manually since they display music according to the metadata delivered to them. Once Spotify receives the updated info from your label or distributor, the changes will be reflected on their side as soon as possible. View solution in original post.
