You can report any content errors/issues such as these directly to the Spotify content team using the instructions outlined in this topic. Once you have submitted a query, the content team will investigate and then pass any needed details over to the record label to request a correction/change if needed (so it can take some time unfortunately!).
The displayed names are likely just database entries and should be able to be fixed easily. Can't remember the artist, I should have saved it, but a couple months ago I found two identically named artist pages. My guess is that there is a third party, other than Spotify or the content providers, that actually maintains the databases. They may even maintain the database for other providers, and possibly the actual streaming service itself.
However it is done, this is where the problem occurs.
I've noticed this as well. See I listen to coco Jones and I've noticed there is 3 on spotify yet 2 out of the 3 is the same person and I want to merge these 2 together and there is another coco Jones that I want listed as a separate artist and it says she appears on an album yet it doesn't have anything to do with her so we should fix this because it's annoying. Is there anything we can do about this.
The comedy music artist Julian Smith is a popular Youtuber who makes songs once in a while among some skits. That artist name mixed him with what appears to be...many other people. His songs are:
I Got My Mac On with iPhone 3GS
Grandma Like Whoa
Red Eye Flashes Twice
Jeffery's Christmas Melody
I'm Reading A Book
Stuck Inside Your Head
Never Get Naked In Your Shower
Kidnapped (Original Soundtrack)
The Kidnapped album is under "Appears On" and is listed as various artists (Julian Smith and Jeffery Dallas). Jeffery Dallas is technically Julian Smith acting as his imaginary cousin, so all the spotify songs by Jeffery Dallas (Akbar and Gone) could be listed under Julian Smith (Youtuber) also, instead of seperating them.
I haven't been using Spotify very long, so maybe I just haven't figured things out yet, but the same-name problem really seems to screw up radio stations based on an artist who has a "namesake" too. Please fix this!
Searching for it brings up several others that is not even in the same genre.
I for example are doing house music, i have two tracks "Touchdown" and "Highway", using radio on any of those two house tracks or the artist name, brings up some jazz music.. Please for godsake fix this. Use some login method for artist or a split feature for logged in artists so i can choose which tracks are mine..
