I have a Pandora Premium account and have several artists listed under my collection's "Artist" section. How do I add more artists to that list? I cannot find a way to do it.

I have been with Pandora for about 10 years.
My partner and I get frustrated when we really just want to add a new artist to the music rotation and we end up making a "Station" which we DO NOT want.
PLEASE tell Pandora that we should be able to add ARTISTS and then you all can pick whatever music from them that you think is good.
@teaganb It looks like you are upgraded to Pandora Premium.
With this level of subscription, you do actually have the ability to play music on demand, where you can pick and choose what songs you want to listen to.
I recommend you try creating a new playlist if you want to manually select specific songs from each artist during each of your listening sessions.
Check out the accepted solution to this thread for instructions on how to create a new playlist: How to create a new playlist
Hope this helps!
I am a premium user who has artist radio stations without those artists being listed under my collections.
It's a bit baffling as to why this should be mysterious at all to be honest. I have a small list of artists that I have apparently collected and have no idea how... meanwhile, I have artists I want to find, and have to scroll through a large list of stations to find them... or search for them directly.
Seems to me that there really should be a straightforward way to add an artist if I have a list of collected artists so readily available.
@AdamPandora - I am not 100% clear on the "sorting your collection by Artists" bit.
On the web, when I go to collection, the default is All with two sort options: Recently Collected, and A-Z.
When I select the Stations "tab", I have over 80 stations (not all by specific artists)... on my Artists "tab", I have only 17 artists listed.
Here are a few that I have stations for that do not show up in my Collected Artists list. Note that the results are different on my Android app. The items with an asterisk are *also* not listed in my Android Pandora Collected Artists list. Hope this helps, as I find this very confusing. I'd love an "Add Artist" option 🙂

I just reviewed my Collected Songs, those artists *are* listed on my Collected Artists list. So I guess this is the surest way, to add a song instead of just a station?
@rogerroger I checked in with our engineering team about this.
To clarify, artists will only get added to the Artists tab if you collect an album or song by that artist.
If you only create a station for them, they will not get added to the Artists tab.
Hope this helps!
I’m trying to setup different artist only stations for those I’m planning to see in concert. It only plays top 10 and doesn’t allow me to save the artist under My Artist. There is no + sign when I search for the artist. What am I doing wrong?
To clarify, an artist will only get added to your collection if you collect an album or track by them.
It sounds like you are attempting to set up either a station or playlist for each artist you are planning to see in concert.
If this is the case, you do have a couple of options:
