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.

Hi Adam,

I sent in a suggestion via email but thought I'd glom onto this thread as well. There are albums and songs by a hard rock group with a similar name being attributed to Swedish indie pop artist Augustine. He doesn't have any albums yet that I can find, only singles Luzon, Guts, Picking up Speed, A Scent of a Lily, and Wishful Thinking. Trying to make stations based off his 5 singles or him as an artist is a complete genre disconnect. Thank you for any help you can give!

There is a funk band called One Way.  Apparently there is a punk band listed under the same name.  This song came up under my funk station and it was dOne Way.jpeg

A huge number of songs by Oribe Risa - stage name "LiSA" - have been filed under the above, a French artist named Lisa Gautier. Strongly recommend adding surname for clarity once separating LiSA's music into its own profile.

Sunbeam https://www.pandora.com/artist/the-night/sunbeam-single/AL53dvkP2x3k4bZ has been listed under an artist by the same name https://www.pandora.com/artist/the-night/ARvjrPK2vXxJ9Vc.  Can this single please be placed on a separate artist page so that the artist can claim it.   Thanks.

Is there a method to resolve the, multiple music groups with the same name problem.

I know I have to thumb down the wrong stuff when it plays,  but is there a reporting system to keep the bands separated by classification.

IE: Marduk (metal) vs. Marduk (electronic).

I see where this is going.

 

There are also two groups named "Moss".  One metal, one pop.

And two groups named "Heiress".  One metal, and one r&b.

Hello,

There are apparently two different bands named The Esquires. Here, the instrumental group featured on the album cover is actually playing. The inset group picture and description belongs to a vocal group.

@AdamPandora I noticed that Butch Walker has multiple listings of the same name. Some of his albums are listed under one, some under the other.

Same with The Midnight and The Midnight (synthwave), as they are the same artist.

Thanks!

Hello,

 

On the album "Hoyt Axton Meets Terri Gibbs, the "About the Artist" section shows Terry Gibbs, with a "Y", who is a male, Jazz musician. The correct Terri, with an "I", is a female, country singer.
