I'm using the API to lookup the social URLs for artists, but some of these seem inconsistent - e.g. entering 'Paul Simon' returns mostly information for Paul Simon (the megastar version) but a Wikipedia page for a UK drummer with the title 'Paul Simon (UK drummer)', clearly wrong - is there any way to submit corrections to this database? Who manages and verifies the content?

Hi Buzzdeck,

Thanks for the feedback. We are working on a solution to better disambiguate artists who share a name and expose this information through our API. For now if you find instances of this, you can submit them to us via email at submit@echonest.com, but stay tuned for a better solution.

Thanks, Tyler
