I see what you mean:

Capturar.PNG.1511d5b9f75dc5219412023936651ca6.PNG

I thought you were saying it wasn't bringing ANY data from specific artists. It is bringing data from everyone, except the description.

The API itself does not provide the artist biography. I get that via scraping their page, for example.

This is the Kiss page:

And from here was coming their biography:

Happens that they removed the /about page: https://open.spotify.com/artist/07XSN3sPlIlB2L2XNcTwJw/about

I can see the info is still there:

but not in a page as it was before. I'll have to browse around and see where they placed that info.

I should update it in upcoming days.

I don't see how I can grab it anymore. I requested to disable purchases on this resource until if it's fixed (if it is).

Oh ok thanks for looking into it for me. You’re the best. Hopefully you're able to find away. My members and myself included love this add on.

That’s the only and definite for Spotify. There’s no way to grab it anymore. That’s a change on the API. That’s all the information about an artist provided by the API: https://developer.spotify.com/documentation/web-api/reference/#endpoint-get-an-artist

There’s always a possibility to use another API to grab it but the challenge is to make sure both artists are the same in Spotify and in the other API, which isn’t easy because it will use a textual search, so honestly I don’t think it worths the job as it can bring data from someone else. 

Changes in the API are beyond the scope of the support and it’s not my fault. You will have to grab the biography elsewhere and paste there. The purchases are disabled because I didn’t add this notice in the file bit I will.

Damn what a shame. It was such a good add on but yeah I definitely understand.

Note added to the file descriptions and terms/conditions:

NOTE: SPOTIFY DOES NOT PROVIDE ARTIST BIOGRAPHY IN THEIR API ENDPOINTS ANYMORE. YOU WILL HAVE TO GET THE BIOGRAPHY ELSEWHERE (Google, Wikipedia, official site, etc.) AND PASTE IT IN THE EDITOR.

DO NOT PURCHASE THIS APP IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH THIS. NO REFUND WILL BE PROVIDED.

"From" section? Anyway, It uses \IPS\GeoLocation (countries are not added manually) and Scotland, alongside with others, are countries that makes part of the United Kingdom, thus UK shows up there. Not sure why Ireland shows up there.... 🤷‍♀️

EDIT: oh, Northern Ireland makes part of the UK and it doesn't show there.

Ireland is an island in the North Atlantic. It is separated from Great Britain.

Hold on tight - I'm a paddy 😄 

"Ireland" = the island of Ireland, and the country is "Republic of Ireland" (which isn't part of the United Kingdom)

"Northern Ireland" is part of the United Kingdom (UK is "United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland")

Most sites don't separate UK out to the individual countries (Wales, England, Scotland, NI) - example: Amazon

Yes from the From section. Ah ok so it's not something that we can manually edit. Thanks!
