Artist not Searchable on Spotify


Artist not Searchable on Spotify


Howdy folks!


My first track on Spotify has just gone live (uploaded in September last year, released today, Jan 8th) and the band name doesn't show up in search results. I can get to it via a direct link easily enough, but the music doesn't seem findable just using the search bar, unless you also include the name of the song.


For example:

If I just search "A Flying Machine" - the name of the Artist, it doesn't show.



But if I search for "A Flying Machine Host" - the Artist and Track name together, the song appears, but still no link to the artist profile.

Am I just being impatient and trying to get an artist result when I need to wait a little while, or should this be showing up right away? It's not ideal for people to need a link to access the artist page every time.


Thanks for your help, it's greatly appreciated.
