Ready to get started with Apple Music for Artists? Claim your artist page from either the Apple Music for Artists iOS app or website. Your content must be live to claim your artist page. Don‘t have an artist page on Apple Music yet? Learn how to get your music distributed.

To claim your page, we have to verify your identity or relationship to the artist or band. When confirming your identity, provide as much information as possible, including any available distributor connections, personal websites, and other media accounts to help us quickly review your application.

Note that only artists or artist managers can claim an artist page. If you are a label representative looking to join an artist’s Apple Music for Artists profile, work directly with your artist to have your request reviewed or to be added as a user. If no artist or artist manager admin actions your request for 30 days, your request will expire.

How to claim your artist page in the iOS app

  1. Sign in to the Apple Music for Artists app with your Apple ID. Download the Apple Music for Artists app, or create an Apple ID if you have not already.
  2. Tap Request Artist Access, and copy and paste your iTunes Store artist page link to search. To find the link to your artist page, input your artist name in the search field.
