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.

I have a similar problem. One of my songs is listed here under a duplicate artist page for "Jen Miller": https://www.pandora.com/artist/jen-miller/ARqk3mrg5t33Vd2

 

But it should be affiliated with this artist page: https://www.pandora.com/artist/jen-miller/ARPhc66nz3zzqp6

 

Can you help fix?

Hello - thank you for your help with this. I just checked again today and the two artists are still being incorrectly combined under this profile:

https://www.pandora.com/artist/nina/AR7vPhzhrhrXj39

Do you have an ETA on when this will be fixed? I would really like to be able to create a station for one of these artists without having the entirely unrelated genre of the other artist also getting added to the station.

Thank you!

There must be more than one band called Brutus, because this song and the album it is from are NOT by the band shown.

The song that is playing is a metal band of some kind but the artist shown bio is for a rapper?

I was suggested this new-punk song by Pandora:

And Pandora suggested these "similar artists":

 The "similar artists" are rappers/hip hop artists; a totally unrelated genre.  This makes me think you have JULIUS' genre mis-labeled.

The artist Faun seems to include THREE different Fauns. There is the FAUN involved with the albums Pandoras Bento, Pandoras BenTwo, C-19, & Vor die Krise. (Well, I think those 4 albums belong to the same FAUN...). Then theres the Faun involved with Pjolter, Spåmannskunst, & Noen Av De Beste. And finally the faun involved with the other albums, the "German pagan folk band" mentioned in the artist summary and thus the "correct" faun. Granted, they all have the same name and don't originate from the USA (two are German, and the other maybe Norwegian?) so its understandable for the mishap, but still it would be preferable to not have the three fauns lumped together.

There's an album called Dj Red Alert's Propmaster Dancehall Show.  The Album is incorrectly attributed to a Britsh Punk artist called 'Red Alert'.  It should be attributed to a New York based Dancehall disc-jockey named 'Red Alert' (or 'Kool DJ Red Alert': https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kool_DJ_Red_Alert).

 
There are also 2 tracks on the album that should similarly have their artist changed from Red Alert (British Punk) to Red Alert (NY Dancehall): Papa Props & Let’s Chill.
 
Can this Album and Track info be updated?
 
Thanks for your help.
