Same problem here too!! Completely two very different genre and language:
Artist page: https://play.spotify.com/artist/2XNwtpu314ZSFziTt0ZqZT

 

First artist: https://play.spotify.com/album/0r4nVUSJz1MUhHrSj2B7Um

 

Second artist: https://play.spotify.com/album/20thISNp1vrebUhdzTsn4s

The band Solace seem to be mixed up with another of the same name also.

There is a rock band 'Crown of Thorns' mixed up with a Christian band of the same name.

And another - IQ: https://open.spotify.com/artist/0DQ9JcIWMGVzlQSfCVK4oN. Both the British prog band I was looking for, a rapper, and some world music artists. I have very wide tastes in music, which is part of why I like streaming services, but it would be nice for Spotify to put a little effort into fixing the database.

 

Others have suggested simple solutions - a tabbed interface with a tab for each artist of the same name would be ideal. It just takes a unique database identifier for each artist of the same name, which the user doesn't need to see. This is a problem on other streaming services as well, but there should be an easy way for users to report, and a well-defined response from the provider. At the very least, there should be some indication that someone is paying attention.

I am an artist on Spotify with the name Eric Best, playing a reggae folk fusion thing and then there's a rapper with the same name dropping N bombs every other word. It's a conflict of interest really... Spotify needs to figure it out. It's streaming 101.

I need to separate the material of my band "Andaluz" from another band that has the same name.

My band has two EPs and two singles in Spotify: "Passos Traquilos", "Troque uma peça de lugar", "Ser feliz e nada mais" e "Caminhos do Sol".


This is the link of the EP that is not from my band: https://open.spotify.com/album/4SRSUMGXgf7nULNjeT7BXx

What about the flip side of this issue: one artist listed under multiple names? For example, Quatre Etoiles du Zaire, 4 Etoiles, 4 Stars, Quatre Etoiles, and Les quatre etoiles -- all one band.

How is this a solution to the problem, and why has it been marked as such?

It definitely isn't meant to be a solution. It's a different problem that I thought was similar enough that it fit this thread.
