Each listed artist is assigned to one (and only one) of the following, based on their primary activity:

Bands – Any multi-member group, including duos.
Solo Artist/Band Leaders – Any solo artist or band leader who primarily used their own name rather than a band name
Musicians – Any musician or vocalist whose primary activity was not that of solo artist or band leader, even though they may functioned as a band leader at times
Songwriters – Any individual who is best known for writing songs for others.

While judgment is necessary, we hope by making these artist subcategories mutually exclusive, your navigation experience will be easier.
