What are the new "Artist" pages and how do they work? I can't find anywhere this is clearly explained. I represent musician Allison Crowe - for whom YouTube has just launched an artist page @ http://www.youtube.com/artist/allison_crowe

So far, this is an auto-generated collection of related videos. The Hollywood Reporter, in this brief item - http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/youtube-merch-store-artist-page-249351 - says these Artist pages are to become hubs for the sale of concert tickets, CDs, music etc.

How does an Artist "claim" their page - and/or otherwise connect with this content?

Thanks very much for your time and answers. If there is another thread where this is all explained, and I've missed it, please advise.

Cheers!
