For questions looking to identify an artist. Be sure to include enough information (picture, video, description, sound sample, etc.) for someone to be able to identify it. If you are looking to identify a band, use the (identify-this-band) tag instead.

This tag is the artist equivalent to the tag. Use this tag if you want to identify an artist you don't know.

Questions should have as much as details as possible:

  • Picture or video where you have seen it.

  • Sound clip with a clear identifiable voice or music recording.

  • Detailed description (distinctive physical or costume traits, noticeable voice/instrument, etc.).

Please, consider asking identification for an artist you consider famous enough to be identified by people all over the world (for example, don't ask to identify a garage cover band you have seen on your local bar, street music bands, or your own music).

There should be exactly one correct answer — when someone does suggest the correct answer, please accept it, so that everyone else knows that there is no point making any other suggestions.
