If you’re an artist or on a management team and you want to get verified and take control of a profile on Spotify, you’ll need to get access to Spotify for Artists.

You can add as many team members as you’d like.

Full access team members can do and see everything in Spotify for Artists —-including edit your artist profile, view stats, and invite new team members. They can also change anyone’s access level and see email addresses for everyone on the your team.

Edit access team members can see the team page, edit the artist profile, and view stats. They can invite new team members, but can only give the people they invite edit or view-only access—not full access. Same goes for changing access levels. Edit team members can’t change the access level of anyone with full access—but they can change view-only team members to edit, and vice-versa. Edit access team members can also visit Team to get an overview of the entire team—but they can’t see anyone’s email addresses.

View-only team members can view stats, but they can’t edit your artist profile. They don’t have access to the Team section of Spotify for Artists—which means they can’t invite new team members or see the names and email addresses of anyone on the team.

If you have full access to Spotify for Artists, you can remove anyone from your team. Just go to Team, find the name of the team member you want to remove, open the pulldown (...) menu, and choose Remove from team. They’ll get an email telling them they no longer have access to your Spotify for Artists profile.

If you have edit access, you can remove anyone with edit or view-only access—but not full access team members.

Any team member with view-only access can’t see the Team section of Spotify for Artists—so they can’t remove anyone from the team.
