Music listed under artist with similar name

Not sure how to get this fixed but I found an album from an artist that is actually listed under the wrong artist name. The album 'Underworld" buy "Vamps" which is a japanese band is being listed under the band "the vamps" which is a British band. Its kinda annoying as I like this album and it introduced me to the band but I can't play the album or the songs from the album on auto play without changing genre completely from hard rock to pop because it attributes it to the wrong artist.

New songs have been added for the old rock band "Sugarloaf" formed in the 70s incorrectly. The songs appear to be by an artist of the same name from Hungaria under the album "Stereo" from what I can tell.

These songs are obviously not by the same artist.

John Williams (the classical guitarist) is paired with the wrong "About the Artist," that of John Williams (the film composer).

Would be great if this could be corrected. Thanks!

Hey all, library error to report here - sometime within the last few weeks you've lumped Brooklyn indie-poppy group Slowdance with a screamy-punk band _The_ Slowdance that appears to be from the UK.   I only noticed and investigated when one of my stations started playing this radically different music.  https://www.pandora.com/artist/slowdance/ARfxJmxwzZtr566

I saw the same thing tonight on "Fight the good fight" by Triumph. The album cover and artist showing with it was "Ash Wednesday",  but that is incorrect.  I made sure by using Shazam before the song finished.  Definitely Triumph

Thanks,

Bryan

There seems to be two "Coil" acts: one pop, the other industrial.

There also seems to be two "SPK" acts: one hiphop (SPKiller) and the other industrial.

Please see "Queen Bee" as well.

Looks like the artist is sharing album space with a different named German comedian group. Screenshot_20191103-122254.png

Hi - my Ghost Channel, which is meant for the Swedish Metal Band, sometimes known as Ghost BC has been playing songs from another band named Ghost lately, that is very much not in the style of the Swedish band.

https://www.pandora.com/artist/all-songs/ghost/ARfwnVZ9dm4mmpw

Can someone please take a look at this, and fix it?

Hello, I am having the same issue except with the artist Bry. The team listed the rapper Bry under the English artists name, is there any way you can fix it? Thank you for your time.
