Over the last few years, streaming services have added a number of features to help create a more interactive experience. A number of these features allow artists to customize their profiles, and link listeners out to their social media, shows, merchandise and more.

Each platform has different levels of customizability and different ways of claiming your Artist Profile, so we've put together a handy list to help you take control of your page!

Claiming your Amazon Music profile

What can you change?

  • Your Amazon Music profile photo

  • Background image

  • Connect to Twitch

How can I claim mine?

Search, ‘Amazon Music For Artists,’ or download the app. From there, you have the option to search for your artist. Type in your artist name, and it should appear within the app or website. Click on the artist you want to claim, and then select ‘take me there.’ From there, you’ll be asked to type in your artist name/company name, and then select your role. This could be the artist, manager or label. You are able to fast track your approval by connecting to your social media account. Once you’ve chosen your platform, you’ll be asked to open the platform (Instagram, Facebook or Twitter) within your Amazon Music For Artists page. Once everything has been finalised, you’ll receive an email showing your artist status has been approved!

Claiming your Apple Music profile

What can you change?

  • By clicking ‘manage’ on your Apple Music for Artists account, you can change your artist profile picture (this image appears next to your Apple Music content on iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Android phone, Apple TV, and the web)

How can I claim mine?

Search ‘Claim your account - Apple music for artists.’ You’ll be taken to a page called ‘Claim your account,’ which allows you to either claim your account via the IOS app, or via the web. If you select sign up via the web, select the link stating sign up for Apple Music for Artists. After this, sign into your account with your Apple ID. Select ‘request artist access’ and search for your artist. Select a song/album, and you’ll be taken through to a verification page.
