A good artist name is unique and searchable. It represents you and your music. Choose wisely! This is really important and we can't stress this enough. If you're lucky your career will be extensive and the artist name will stay with you for a long, long time.
CHOOSE AN ARTIST NAME THAT DOESN'T ALREADY EXIST IN STORES! Google it, check the stores, scan social media platforms. If it already exists, you will run into problems. Make it easy for your fans to find you and your music!
It is up to you, the artist, to select a name that works for you. Using a unique name is a real advantage when it comes to search. It is not enough to try and differentiate it with uppercase or lowercase letters or with other markings. And Emojis are not allowed.
Even if you are a solo artist, you might consider a stage name if your own real name is very common or might get confused with someone else's music.
So, keep your artist name unique!
Also, remember these pretty simple rules:
We take the artist name from the Amuse account. What you write in the artist name field will be your artist name in the stores.
NO Additional Information, don't add a former band name, an instrument or something else. Also, former artist name is not allowed, like aka and such.
NO Compound Artist or a temporary duo If there is more than one performing artist, each artist must be listed individually and identified as Primary. If it is a real duo the two names should be added as one artist name.
NO Generic Artist Names. Generic artists, such as Yoga, Meditation, Christmas, Top Hits, are not accepted as artist name.
