    I recently upgraded from a Windows phone 7 to 8. I was extremely disappointed that I couldn't use the Zune software, but that is a different topic. Anyways I added a bunch of music which has all it's needed tags, but I noticed a few artist are missing. Their albums and songs are there and when you play a song it shows the artist's name, but their name isn't under artist. This is very annoying. How do I fix this?

    Its an old issue
    You will see only those artists that are on the marketplace. When I had the HD7, NOISIA ( my fav artist) wasn't listed...imstead, I got a picture of some old ugly buggers...pissed me off..

    It's not first party but MPAtool is a good alternative to solving this problem. You get to choose the artist art from whatever it has on its database, or from your own library, if you have high-res pics of your artist, they can look quite beautiful in HD (or even non-HD) screens. The downside is that if you want to choose another art, you have to completely delete and then re-sync the artist.

    Also, after attaching an art to an artist, the app makes a junk music file that can be deleted without consequence
