This is the Artist Directory index where you’ll find links to all of the records that have been reviewed to date for each artist along with basic biographical information and brief overviews of their career.

Because of the different ways artists can be credited, for consistency’s sake artists here will be listed alphabetically by the FIRST name appearing on their record label, be it the first word of a group’s name, a stage name (such as Big, Little or other moniker), or their first given name, rather than by surname. If an artist changes how they’re attributed at some point during their career we’ll generally include all records under their most frequent attribution or the one in which they enjoyed their greatest success.
