Once you claim your artist page on Apple Music you can keep track of your stats and customize your profile.

Smart artists use every tool available to boost the reach of their songs. Once you’ve got your music on Apple Music with the help of RouteNote, check out the Apple Music for Artists app. The platform lets you keep on top of your releases. Once you’ve created your page, you make it your own, so listeners get to know you and your music.

You can easily add an artist image and bio. Your Apple Music for Artists dashboard is also a gateway to your stats, giving you insights into where in the world your fans are based, what’s working well for your releases, your Shazam data, and the next steps you should take with your campaign.

Apple Music needs to verify you are who you say you are, so first you need to request access. The process is the same on the iOS app or in browser.

How to set up an artist profile on Apple Music

  • Download the Apple Music for Artists app or head to
  • Either sign in with your Apple ID, or create one if you haven’t already. Click Request Artist Access, and search for your artist name (you can also paste an iTunes Store artist link).
  • Select one of your albums to show you’re claiming the right artist page. Tell Apple Music what role you’re filling – artist or artist manager– and then fill out the rest of the application.
  • Your status will now say “Pending.”

Give as much information as possible, including social media accounts, to make the application process quicker. Any updates and Apple Music for Artists will let you know over email.
