Seeding Specific Musicians in Addition to Seeding Artists

I would like a feature that lets you add the name musician credits in addition to being able to add artists and songs. 

Some musicians, especially session musicians are very talented, such that songs where they have a credit, such as composing a song, playing a song, that they appear in different bands but aren’t considered the name of the main artist, or if they appear only as a guest only on certain album tracks, and I hope to be able to have them added as a different type of seed.

Thanks for sharing your suggestion, @MusicIsForever

Logged in to request this feature.

Would like to have Song Credits info included with I add a channel. It helps me discover artists when they collaborate with some of my current favs, and vice-versa.

Could be in a separate channel 'Artist-X collaborations' where the person/band has worked with other musicians.

I think a real easy way to change this would be to replace the "Artist" button on stations with "Station Seeds." "Artists" doesn't look right, and even "Station Artists" doesn't and really it is also misleading, as in it seems like there would be a problem if one selects a song under the artist station feature. What could that possibly mean??? The artist button is too nondescript. Seeing it first made me think that it was only one artist and that artist was the one currently playing. So it took me a lot of trial and error to figure out that Artist could be plural. Many of my stations had 100+ seeds, and when I clicked on the Artist button I couldn't remember all the Seeds just that I wanted the bands in the mix, so I thought my station was going haywire. Then, I learned to put fewer seeds by recommendation, and to expect popular music on the "My Station" setting. And, then to go to Discovery to find less popular bands. My next question I wonder is what if the Discovery part runs out, which I think it does, but there is always the Deep Cuts. For now I'm satisfied. It would be nice though to be able to search for "Songs," "Artists," and "Credits." I'll add to that I have question:  Does the "My Station" feature become broader in song and artists by using Deep Cuts and/or Discovery each subsequent time I use it, because if it did, that would be ideal. Also, I have learned that if you want to listen to rarer music, make a single station with a rare seed, perhaps 1k-5k listeners, and use the My Station Feature because eventually you probably will get to the more popular stuff, and then you can click on Discovery when that happens.
