Merging Artists

Not sure why but there are two Bethan Kellough’s in my Roon library. One with an artist photo and another without an artist photo but with “Around the web” entries. Is there a way for Roon users to merge two artists?

Hey @aronson

Thank you for your question. Yes, you can merge artists rather easily in Roon. Here’s how you do it.

Select both Artists on the artist page.

Click Merge artists (in the top right corner of the Artists page)

Select the Primary artist. When merging artists you’ll want to set the primary artist as the one with Discography, artist bio, etc, in order for these metadata assets to appear.

For example; if you use the streaming service artist as primary, the local music files artist will be merged and metadata for streaming content will remain. If you use your local music files artist as primary the rich metadata links to discography, bios, albums reviews, etc will be lost.

You can unmerge artists at anytime by going to Setting>Library>Un-merge artist (unmerge button appears at the far right of the page)

The solution does not work for me.

How does one “Select both Artists on the artist page” ?

Please clarify on what to click and how.


If you long press on an artist it activates the ability to select more than one. Once you’ve selected more than one, the “Merge Artists” button will appear at the top of the page.
