Spotify continues to quickly add functionality to Spotify for Artists, the collection of tools that give you more influence on your Spotify profile as an artist. One of the most useful new options is the option to add your artist bio yourself.

Biographies can be found in Spotify under the 'Information' tab. Until now it was quite complicated to get your own text placed here, but from now on you can easily edit this information via 'profile' in your Artists dashboard. A biography can contain 1500 characters and it is also possible to add a link to a Wikipedia page. Keep in mind that it takes a while for the biography to actually be visible and make sure that you do not infringe on the rights of third parties.

Also new is that Spotify for Artists is now accessible to 'teams'. In other words: you can give your fellow band members or crew access to your account, so that they also have insight into the extra statistics, can change the image or biography, and so on.

Not using Spotify for Artists yet? We strongly recommend that you sign up via artists.spotify.com, so that you too can make your profile more attractive for your fans!
