Better use of space in artist banner area

As much as I really like having the nice artist banner at the top of the page I find that its too big. In order for me to do anything I have to scroll down. What if a portion of the banner area is used for something like top picks instead? I think Roon’s adherance to a horizontal layout is not very efficient use of space and there is just too much wasted space forcing the user to have to make too many clicks or movements across the screen,

Here is a quick mockup of my idea…maybe an area at the top of the artist page can be customized for quick access to things people are most interested like top picks, album list, etc.
