Lesser-searched artists not showing up in search?

My name is Paul Tabachneck.  That's the name under which I've released three independent albums, all of which are available on Spotify.  

 

If you type "Paul Tab" into the search bar, the suggestion Spotify gives you is "Paul Taylor."  "Paul Taylor," "Paul Taffanel," and "Paul Abraham" are the top matches for "Paul Tab."

 

If you type "Paul Taba", "Paul Jabara" is the only match returned.  

 

Anything from "Paul Tabac" through "Paul Tabachnec" returns nothing in the quick results in Windows -- on ioS it flatout tells you there is nothing matching it in the catalogue.  

 

Only once you've typed "Paul Tabachneck" and hit enter do my albums come up.  

 

I tried this for my friends Bill Deasy and E.W. Harris and found a similar result.

 

Where's the love, Spotify?

Is this your page?: Paul Tabachneck

 

If so, I get you as a search suggestion when I type "Paul Taba" into the search box. 

I can also find your albums by searching for them by name in the search box.

I am on Windows 7, Spotify client is v0.8.8.459

I could test on my trusty BlackBerry but it doesn't like searching at the best of times lol!

Hmm, seems I'm still at v0.8.454.  Is there a way to manually update it?

Hmm, now it's starting to show up here as well.  Must just be the system being hinkey.  

 

Still not showing up in IoS, though....
