Pandora is a curated service. This means that we deliver material and their team of curators previews, screens, and considers the music to add to their service.
If you are searching your artist name and don't find it, it is because of this reason above as well. Your music won't always and automatically play when you find and search your name.
Another way to verify the status of your submission is to create an artist account on Pandora’s "Next Big Sound" platform (www.nextbigsound.com). If Pandora curators have selected your release to be added, you will see spin stats for the release on your profile page.
Please keep in mind that Pandora curators look for the following when considering a release for a feature:
-Compelling album cover art
-Established, sizable audience reach
