Many artists start off without establishing an Artist Name & this is very important for so many reasons . First off you don’t want to use common names like John or Mike ; if that’s your name you need to add something to it to make it Unique or make it your own. You don’t want to have to have your fans go on Spotify & they don’t know which John or Mike to listen to ; or even worse they listen to the wrong John or Mike and you they think you’re an horrible artist. Establishing an Artist Name is the start of you taking your brand , career , & online presence more serious . So we suggest all artists before they start putting out music to follow these steps :
