The bio for Sam Smith is inaccurate - it uses he/him pronouns while Sam Smith uses they/them.

I see what happened. There *is* another band called Kite that this bio is for. However, the music in the channel seems to be a mix of both bands' music.

Hi Tanner! The info in Armando's bio is correct but the wrong picture is being used. Not sure who is pictured. Perhaps another Armando? https://www.pandora.com/artist/full-bio/armando/ARrdxX345nxnnfw

In the bio for Ray Charles it says: "The biopic Ray hit screens in the fall of 2010 and was a critical and commercial success, with the actor who portrayed Charles in the move, Jamie Foxx, winning the 2005 Academy Award for Best Actor for his role." Clearly one of those years is incorrect. Also, should say "movie" not "move"

Sully Erna of Godsmack is said to be a "devout wiccan". This is not even close to true. It's a misconception stemming from wikipedia. In an interview he was made aware of this theory about him and found it laughable. Sully Erna claims no particular religion, and has no background in Wiccan study or worship.

The bio for pianist Bill Evans is incorrect.  It links to another person named Bill Evans.  The pianist Bill Evans died in 1980.

The bio and photo for Texas-based Hip-Hop band Third Root are of San-Diego based "alternative metal four-piece" band 3rd Root.  Music selections are correct.  The "similar artists" seem to be a mix of both.  https://thirdroot.bandcamp.com/music

The band Redemption playing on Pandora in this screenshot is not the same band as shown in the biography.  The band "now playing" is a hard rock band and the band in the bio is a progessive metal band.

Oscar The Grouch (children) has a bio for Grouch, a rapper/hip hop artist.  Something tells me that this would be an important one to fix.  Besides, I like trash cans better.  🙂

@blankface That should definitely be reviewed. 😅

Got another one for the curation team.  The artist referenced is this Prototype, a progressive metal band. 

https://www.discogs.com/artist/1369206-Prototype-18

The artist actually playing is some kind of hip-hop/rap artist, apparently with the same name?

I'm starting to think we Pandora listeners are the curation team...
