Edit artist bio?

kirkbross

How do you edit the artist BIO section of an artist profile?

 

Not the header image.

Not your favorite songs or playlists.

Not your avatar image.

 

The BIO text. 

 

I cannot for the life of me find a way to edit this in the app or in my account online.

Had the same problem when using Firefox. However, switching to Safari solved the problem. Might be a browser related problem.

Hey there, @kirkbross 🙂

 

We have some more info on this here: https://artists.spotify.com/faq/profile#can-i-update-the-bio-in-the-about-tab.

 

All bios are pulled automatically from Rovi’s database, so it's best to reach out to the folks there.

 

If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to reach out to our Artist Support folks here: https://artists.spotify.com/contact.

 

We hope this helps.

 

Many thanks,

/M

I'm having a similar problem. I can add a playlist, I could paste a wikipedia link but I can not enter text or paste text into the Bio box. If I click in it, the border turns white with a thick white bar at the right edge but paste is not an option and there is no cursor or way to enter text. This is on two different mac computers. Is there anything wrong or am I doing something wrong? Thanks for any suggestions.

Hi

I'm having the exactly the same problem. Did you get anywhere with this? The answer that Spotify gave didn't seem to address your problem!

Yeah, go to https://artists.spotify.com/ and log in to your account, then go to Profile under TOOLS on the left and click the pencil next to bio.

I am having the same issue.  I click on the pencil tool can type in any other box...cannot type in Artist Bio box.  Tried in IE and Firefox.

I found that clicking the cursor in the box was extremely dodgy and hit and miss as to whether or not the cursor was actually recognized. What I mean is that not all the usually successful ways of clicking in a box seemed to hit the sensitive spots to activate the cursor. Try clicking in different places. Eventually, it seemed that I hit the right "sensitive" spot
