Artist

The Artist field should contain the composer and the most important performers who appear on that specific recording. Begin with composer, separated from the featured performers with a semicolon. Use a colon between multiple performers.

  • If the release lists all performers who appear on the release, be careful to only add performers who actually contributed to the specific recording.
  • If no performer info can be found, just use the composer.
