I’m sure this has been discussed before, but I can’t find it. Recently I ran across a set of edits that entirely erased pen names from the writing credits of a song. These pen names are standalone MB Artists, linked to a different MB Artist that represents the legal name, as the person performs as many different names and projects.
I assume that if the writing credits in the booklets consistently point at a performance name, then the Artist-Work relationship should use the performance name rather than the legal name? I’m pretty sure this is how most editors do things, but let’s get a sanity check here.
