I am the artist Happy Sound and I found out there is no music genre under the artist page.
I cannot find a way on the UI to set a genre.
It’s an important topic since music the genre displayed on Spotify, everynoise.com and so on is not correct.
Can someone tell me how to set a genre (or how the genre is determined if not manually set) for an artist ?
Thanks a lot
Do you know what is the source of truth for artist genre ? I mean, where all the internet platforms and website are picking up the genre for an artist ? Is it from music brainz?
Genre is highly personal and subjective.
I don’t think MusicBrainz is the source.
When you add a release to Spotify you can pick from a list of genres, but just one, and it’s very basic (rock, comedy, rap, etc). Maybe it gives their algorithm a basic starting point.
