Let’s get the basics down, so you can start enjoying artist pages. No, we don’t mean have a look at Van Gogh’s personal diary, we want you to enjoy our music artists as much as possible.
If you’re just starting out, the artist’s page will offer loads of content to begin building your library.
How do you add an artist to My Music?
Finding an artist through a song
- Type in the track name, the artist will come up next to it in the track list
- Click on the Artist
- Click the heart symbol
On the app:
- Type in the track name
- Tap on the three dots next to the track
- Go to Artist Page
- Tap on the heart symbol
On the artist’s page, you’ll find Similar Artists so you can find more you love.
Or, you can always search
Type for the artist in the Search Bar, click the heart symbol next to the artist.
How do you find artists after you’ve added them?

Need to fill up your playlist? Favorite tracks need a bit of life? Check out the artist’s Discography for more great songs.
- Tap My Music
- Touch Artists
- Tap the Artists page you want (you can start here after a quick search if you have no artists in your library)
- A) On deezer.com: Give Discography a click
- B) On the app: Scroll down to Discography and have a browse
So, you’ve found one artist and are now stuck on who to add next? Have a look at Similar Artists to help you get going, and favorite artists that you forgot you loved.
To get to similar artists, follow the steps above but touch Similar Artists.
Tap the heart symbol to add them to your library.
The playlists on the artist’s page include editor-picked playlists which feature the artist. They are a mix of tracks and artists with the same type of music, a great way to build up your playlist library.
There may also be some playlists made by other Deezer users from all over the world - but you are welcome to add these to your library too.
To browse through the playlists, follow the same steps for Discography and click Playlists instead, and then add it to your library.
Want to know a little more about the artist? Check out the biography section. (Follow the same steps, just go to Biography)
These are only available through Deezer.com.
Comments allow you to share your experiences, thoughts, pretty much anything you want about the artist to the rest of the Deezer community.
Want to find more music that you know you’ll love? Mix your favorite artist.
Wait, what does that mean?
When you Mix an artist, Deezer plays you music from them and loads of similar artists. Which means you get to discover (perhaps) unknown, awesome music.
If you just want to listen to music by the artist, have a look on their page for Discography and Top Tracks.
- Type in the Artist you want to hear in the Search bar
- Click on the Artists tab
- Tap on the artist
- Just under the artist’s name there will be a Mix button
If you have already added the artist to your music:
- Head to My Music
- Tap on Artists
- Tap on the artist you want to go to the artist page
- Tap the Mix button - Look for the blue button with the white arrow (they vary slightly with different devices)
Don’t worry, you don’t have to have the artist in your favorites in order to mix them. As long as you get to the artist page, the process will be the same.
Just so you know: You can’t save artist mixes but you can save Editor mixes.
Artist queries (and answers)
Artists and artist's pages hold a load of useful information to help you draw the most from your Deezer experience. Got a couple of questions about artists? Let’s see if we can help.
Why do you have artists in My Music before you’ve tapped the heart button?
If you’ve linked your Deezer account with your Facebook account, the artists you’ve liked on there will automatically be in your favorite artists. Just a little help to get you started and make your Flow better.
You've favorited a track, why isn't the artist in your Flow?
Flow takes many different things in account. So it may take a little while to bring them into your Flow.
Try adding the artist to your library, or adding more of their songs to your Favorites.
You’ve told Flow not to play a track by an artist, why is it still playing songs by them?
For a full explanation look at our Flow.
You may need to add more favorite songs and other artists so Flow can learn your music taste better.
Why is there no music from an artist?
We license all the content on our service from labels, artists, management and content providers. Sometimes, those licenses mean we’re not able to provide an artist’s music in a certain country or at all. We’re always working to add more.
