"Artist Only" Mode playing other artists

LordCayleth

Why is it that no matter what artist I pick, my "Artist only" version of their station only plays Tool? 

It was the worst with Alice In Chains, but I have the same problem with my NIN station, and even **ahem** like Black Keys. In no case is TOOL the artist of the station, and they're clean, new stations with only one band as a seed. I deleted my thumbs up station... Everything should be clean, but Pandora seems to think every artist is at least half tool.

Why is there even an "artist only" button if it can't even figure out what artist to play?

I am having this on multiple stations on my account. These stations have no other seeded music and are Artist Only. Please help.

@joelissexy21069 I will need specific examples in order to help look into this further.

The next time this happens, please send me a screenshot of the now playing screen when different artists are playing in Artist Only Mode on your station.

Thanks for working with me on this.

If this is a case of seeding other artists to a station that show up in an "Artist Only" mode, why do artists besides the one specified show up in feeds that haven't been seeded? When I play George Winston in artist only mode, the feed eventually devolves into one Liz Story track after another, and Winston disappears. I haven't manually added any artists to my Winston station, so artist only should play the artist only.

@chrismykrantz Can you please send me a screenshot of the now playing screen the next time an artist that isn't seeded on your station plays in Artist Only Mode?

Thanks for working with me on this.

Here you go ... same activity I just mentioned ... George Winston radio
playing in artist only and playing Liz Story tracks. Five of the last seven
tracks on this station have been Liz Story.

@chrismykrantz I'm showing Liz Story has been added as variety (as an artist seed) to that station:

I recommend removing that artist seed from your station to get it back on track.

Hope this helps!
