EmuBands artists get instant access to Spotify for Artists.
To get instant access, simply follow these steps within the EmuBands Dashboard area after your first release is live on Spotify:
1. Go to the ‘Platforms’ tab, and select Spotify from the drop-down menu.
2. Click the green ‘Connect your Spotify Account’ button
Follow the on-screen prompts to link EmuBands with your personal Spotify account (this is the Spotify account you want to use to control your Spotify Artist Page through Spotify for Artists); if you don’t have a Spotify account, sign-up – it is free.
3. You’ll be redirected back to the Platforms tab, and on this page, you should now be able to select your Artist Name from the drop-down menu.
What if the drop-down menu shows ‘No Artist Found’?
This is a list of artist names that appear on your EmuBands account for which we hold a Spotify Artist URI and where the release has been successfully ingested by Spotify (see how long this takes here – How Long Does It Take?)
If your release is live on Spotify, and your artist name still isn’t showing on this list, it probably means we just need to quickly link your Spotify Artist URI with our system. Get in touch with your account manager and we’ll sort this ASAP.

4. Once you’ve selected your artist name from the drop-down menu, click ‘Next’, and complete the form – and you’re verified! You now have instant access to Spotify for Artists, and can start using it straight away.
As always, if you ever have any questions, or need any assistance, please contact your account manager, who will be happy to assist.
