Contributor Roles (Producer, Songwriter, etc.)

We now support contributor roles for Spotify and iTunes!

On digital platforms you typically see performers, featuring artists, and remixers, while supporting roles may be hidden. Although contributor roles aren’t considered for top billing on a release or song, digital music providers have begun to support or require these roles for credits and proper attribution.

Producers, songwriters, drummers, mastering engineers, and other roles that you would find in traditional liner notes are the types of roles supported in this feature. Very few partners currently support these roles (notably Spotify & Apple), but we encourage clients to fill out as much information as possible when creating releases.

More partners will utilize these rules and may require them in the future to properly submit a release on their platform. Adding these roles to your releases now may have benefits for how your release displays in the future.


Spotify supports showing Producer & Songwriter credits on their releases.




Apple requires certain roles to be provided when submitting content within certain genres like Jazz.

Where to use these roles

These roles are selected on the track level under the artist section when creating a release.

You can add as many roles as you need to properly attribute a song.
